Belize Singles Vacation!
JULY 28th*- AUGUST 6th
9-nights with air - $2,850
*Departs the evening of July 27th
This will be our 8th trip to this incredible Central American country and it makes for a wonderful adventurous vacation. We've always sold this trip out and one year had enough interest to run 2 back-to-back trips of 42 people each!
Most people think of Belize only as a diving resort, but it’s way more. The mainland offers an amazing jungle with many ruins, archeological sites and very unique adventure tours. Belize’s interior is a 65-percent uninhabited wonderland of deep jungle rain forest, exotic native species, and myriad Mayan temples. But certainly it is also home to the worlds second-largest barrier reef.
This trip we are mixing things up and rather than spending our mainland time in San Ignacio we will be on the coast at a very nice beach front resort. We’ll spend 4 nights at Hopkins Bay, ideally situated at the edge of Belize, on the Caribbean Sea, in the heart of the cozy Garifuna village. It was voted the friendliest city in Belize and otherwise known as the real Belize. You can read more below about the Hopkins Bay Resort and this beautiful area. I'm very excited to be trying something new and much nicer.. At this resort for the price stated above, everyone will have their own one-bedroom unit. This is due to their having just one king or queen bed plus a day bed. See below for a reduction in price if you are able to share.
This area of Belize features 2 of the best tours you will ever take in your lifetime. One of those is a tour that will have you floating on an innertube through 7 miles of underground river caves with only your headlamp to light your way. It's really interesting and a lot of fun. The other tour is a visit to an incredible cave that's called Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM for short) which is one of the only caves that has not been looted that has all the original pottery is exactly how it was left hundreds of years ago and even had a skeleton of a child that has been molded to the floor with hundreds of years of calcification! It's a tour you will never forget.
From National Geographic: In myths, journeys to the underworld are never easy, and after visiting Actun Tunichil Muknal (Cave of the Stone Sepulchre), you may feel that you have been through your own epic test. Access to the Maya sacrificial site within the cave involves hiking, wading, and underwater swimming, but nearly a mile (1.6 kilometers) underground you will reach the resting place of the “crystal maiden,” a complete female skeleton that sparkles from eons of crystal calcification. The cave also contains Maya pottery shards, many showing the “kill hole” intended to allow spirits to escape.
There are plenty of other tours that are on offer from Hopkins Bay including a visit to a beautiful waterfall for a great swim,horseback riding in the jungle, canoeing, zip lining and exploring great Mayan Ruins. Of course our resort offers a 5-star Padi dive shop, so you might be interested in getting in the water or just enjoying a free day at Hopkins Bay.
After our 4-days on the mainland it's island time. We’ll fly over to Ambergris Caye in small prop planes for the next 5 nights.
This long, slender island is just inside the famous barrier reef with excellent visibility and coral reefs. This is home to some of the best diving in the world such as Lighthouse Atoll and the famous Blue Hole!
There’s also a variety of tours available and fun little shops and restaurants to enjoy, plus great nightlife! One of the best tours takes us island hopping with a couple of snorkel stops and lunch on a small island where we may be the only people there! You can also rent a golf cart and take your own tour of the island which is a lot of fun. We know special resorts as well that we can recommend to go in to on a bike ride or golf cart tour to enjoy a beautiful pool, drinks and lunch.
Our resort there, called Sunbreeze, is located on a beautiful stretch of beach, has a nice pool, their own dive shop, bar and restaurant and is located a short walk from town. We’ll snorkel, scuba dive and party on this great trip. Think it might be too hot in the summer? It’s actually not bad at all. This is the time of year we've always gone to Belize and it's always been great.
We've got great air which will get us in to Belize early on the 28th giving us nearly a full day on our arrival.

Daredevils and beach bums rejoice. We’ve taken care of all the little details standing between you and your next “ooh” and “ahh”. The hardest decision you’ll have to make at Hopkins Bay is which palm tree you’d like to swing on a hammock from at the end of the day.
