BELIZE, July 4, 2014 – Thousands of travelers visit Belize every year thanks to the country’s magnificent beauty: a pristine barrier reef (the largest in the western hemisphere), the abundant flora and fauna that inhabit the unspoiled rainforest, the remnants of ancient Maya Cities like Caracol and Altun Ha, and the eclectic and colorful Belizean cultures like the Creole, Mestizo and Garinagu.
Belize is a paradise for nature lovers and adventurers. “Zip lining, mountain biking, horseback riding, scuba diving, snorkeling, cave tubing and bird watching continue to remain the top activities that travelers partake in,” says Belizean blogger Lorenzo Gonzalez, who promotes Belize on his website.
Over the years, many beautiful and exotic resorts are popping up, adding to Belize’s beauty and charm. Following are nine Belizean resorts that are among the most popular and can be used as a base to explore the country’s spectacular attractions from north to south, and east to west.
Turtle Inn is a 25 room seafront hideaway that is owned by film director Francis Ford Coppola.
The resort is located in Placencia and offers individual thatched cottages decorated with handcrafted Balinese furnishings that are naturally cooled by the ever-present Caribbean Sea breezes. Over the years, the resort has been consistently ranked as one of the best in Central and South America by Trip Advisor and Conde Nast Traveler magazine.
