Reef to Rainforest in Beautiful Belize
10 NIGHTS GUIDE PRICE £3,750
Belize may be tiny, but it certainly packs a punch when it comes to soft adventure! There are also ancient Mayan ruins to discover, incredible snorkelling and some stunning Caribbean beaches. Add to this a few nights on Mexico’s stunning Riviera Maya for a wonderful adventure in Central America.
Guide Price & Inclusions
3 nights in the Riviera Maya, Cancun, followed by 3 nights Cayo District and 4 nights in the Cays costs £3,750 per adult and £950 per child under 12 sharing including flights, accommodation with breakfast (full board in the jungle) and transfers.
Rates subject to travel dates and hotel selection.
BA have flights to Belize via Miami so you could opt to combine a few nights soaking up the glitz and glamour of Miami’s South Beach with the natural splendour of Belize for a very different and contrasting itinerary.
Best Time to Travel
The best time to enjoy this itinerary is from December to April, during the dry season and an ideal time for snorkelling in the Belize Barrier Reef. However July is also worth considering as long as you stay at a resort which removes the sargassum seaweed in Mexico.
