Explore the highlights of this small but beautiful country on our blissful, two centre Belize holiday. On this holiday in Belize you immerse yourself in the remote western jungle at the romantic luxury resort of Ka'ana. Here your hideaway is nestled amidst the lush forest and is surround by the rich history of the Mayan civilization. The rooms at Ka'ana are luxurious and the hotel is renowned for its highly attentive service, complemented by the Belizean cuisine served in its restaurant, and its superb wine cellar, the largest selection in the country. Engage in the Mayan culture of the region and explore the nearby ruins of Caracol and Xunantunich. Adventure is right there on your doorstep, with activities ranging from caving, cave tubing, horse riding, mountain biking and kayaking.

Ambergris Caye, surrounded by the shimmering waters of the Caribbean, is your next destination where you can really let go and enjoy the easy pace of beach life. Victoria House has classic, barefoot elegance in spades and is located just steps away from the island's beautiful white sand beaches. You can relax beside the ocean or by the hotel's swimming pool, or chose from a range of marine activities. Included in your stay here are snorkelling tours to nearby reefs that teem with tropical multi-coloured fish. For qualified divers the lure of the Blue Hole is enticing and day trips can be arrange locally. A Belize holiday is an irresistible mix of reef and rainforest.

Itinerary

Day 1 Take the daytime flight from London to Miami arriving late afternoon. Overnight at an airport hotel such as the DoubleTree by Hilton or take a short taxi ride to trendy South Beach and enjoy the city buzz for the evening.

Day 2 Return to the airport for the short flight to Belize City. On arrival you will be privately transferred to the Ka'ana Boutique Resort in the Cayo District. This luxury resort close to the town of San Ignacio puts a strong emphasis on the surrounding environment and offers some beautifully romantic accommodation. The restaurant serves a variety of traditional Belizean cuisine using fresh ingredients from the organic garden.

Day 3 Today visit the famous Mayan ruins of Xunantunich (meaning stone woman) located close to the banks of the Mopan River. In the classic Mayan Period (300-900 AD) Xunantunich was a thriving city with a large plaza ringed with pyramids, with the tallest reaching 130 feet. The centre of the site is composted of six major plazas surrounded by more than 25 temples and palaces. Afterwards you can explore the town of San Ignacio before returning to your hotel.

Day 4 Your Belize honeymoon includes two free days to explore the nearby area at your own pace. We'd highly recommend visiting Caracol, the largest Mayan archeological site in Belize, with its massive pyramid (Caana) rising over 140 feet above the jungle floor, from where there are impressive views of the jungle.

Day 7 Explore the underwater world on a snorkeling trip to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley. Hol Chan means little channel in Mayan and is a natural break on the barrier reef where the ocean depth ranges from 3 to 30 feet. Here you can see a myriad of marine live, including many types of fish, stingrays and occasionally manatees. At Shark Ray Alley you can snorkel with harmless nurse sharks and also southern stingrays.

Day 8 Close to the town of San Pedro, Mexico Rocks is an excellent snorkel site which is perfect for novices. Here you spot Boulder coral often 10-12 feet high which almost reaches the surface and provides refuge to a huge variety of marine life. This includes colourful butterfly fish, eels, spiny lobsters, stingrays and eels. Underwater visibility at Mexico Rocks is excellent with dramatic canyon walls and caves through the coral formations.

Day 9 Free time to relax at your hotel, or maybe scuba dive the famous Blue Hole (arranged locally). Victoria House can arrange special treats for honeymooners such as a picnic for two, massage treatments, or a romantic candlelit dinner on the beach under the clear starry skies.
