Believe in Belize

With the latest surge in crime in Mexico, travelers are seeking an alternative this winter. One needs to look no further than the country that borders Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Belize. Best known for the longest barrier reef this side of Australia, Belize has a magical interior that should not be overlooked.  Head to San Ignacio to explore the Mountain Pine Ridge on horseback or canoe though the rainforest on the Macal River. You’ll swim under waterfalls and very likely spot toucans. This section of the country is also known for its abundance of Mayan ruins, including Caracol, site of the 140-foot high Caana (Sky Palace) and the legendary Tikal in neighboring Guatemala. Nestled amidst the Belize interior, Chaa Creek is your upscale guide to the surrounding rainforest and Mayan Ruins. The 365-acre nature preserve sits on a hillside of tall mahogany and cedar trees overlooking the Macal River. The property offers two dozen deluxe bungalows, including a treetop suite with whirlpool, new spa, and a restaurant that thrives on local fare. Yet, Chaa Creek’s real forte is guiding families deep into the jungle. Or check out Ka'ana, a new 15-room upscale boutique resort that will help set up all your adventures in Belize.
