Guide to Planning Your Trip to Belize

If you’re planning a trip to Belize, you’re probably looking for information on flights, lodging, and activities. While the current global situation might cause you to rethink your trip, in many ways this is the ideal time to begin planning a trip to Belize. By planning ahead, you can take advantage of some of the best deals on flights and lodging. Due to the restrictions on traveling, you might mean avoid the normal crowds of tourist season in Belize. To make your planning process easier, we’ve compiled the information you need for an amazing vacation in Belize.

Travel Deals

COVID-19: Please contact businesses directly to confirm their operation status.

Depending on the region, many departing flights have been restored and those airlines resuming service are offering deeply discounted flights. Similarly, many hotels and resorts re-opening have been putting their rooms on sale. Even better, according to an article from April in USA Today, the TSA said “it screened 95% less travelers than the same week a year ago.” This means that you’ll most likely be traveling without the normal crowds, lines, and waiting that you’re used to in the airport.

Round Trip Flights to Belize

Another benefit of planning a trip to Belize now is that most airlines have added free cancellation policies. In fact, Southwest Airlines has instituted a policy that you can cancel your flight at least 10 minutes before its scheduled departure. Starting in the Fall, roundtrip flights to Belize on Southwest range from about $300 – $500. Similarly, United Airlines is waiving change fees for existing and new bookings and has comparable roundtrip flights to Belize.

Accommodations

Once you grab a discounted roundtrip flight, you’ll probably want to begin looking for the best accommodations in Belize. Whether you’re planning a trip to Belize for scuba diving, boat tours, or just relaxing on the beach, we highly recommend you book lodging in Caye Caulker. Known for its world-class scuba diving and pristine beaches, Caye Caulker also offers a wide variety of incredible accommodations to meet any budget. If you’re looking for four- and five-star options, check out Yocamatsu Bed & Breakfast, Rainbow Hotel, and Leeside Rooms. All of them are just steps away from the beach and offer amenities like pools, cable, Wi-Fi, and air conditioning.

At Belize Diving Services, we center our scuba diving training around one simple goal — to help customers safely and fully enjoy the beautiful Caribbean Sea, reefs and wildlife. To help you feel more comfortable on your diving adventure, you can go through our SDI / TDI or PADI Open Water Certification with our certified dive instructors. We recommend you start both courses online before you arrive in Belize, so you can spend as much time in the water as possible. If you’ve already taken scuba courses before, you can refresh your skills at our Scuba Review course.

Boat Tours

While there are lots of water sports to choose from in the Caye Caulker region, we offer spectacular boat tours included with our diving packages. In fact, when you book a diving tour with Belize Diving Services, you’ll get to cruise to the dive site in style. Our purpose-built 46-ft. Newton Dive Special boats have onboard toilets, showers, camera and wet-suit rinse facilities, plus space to lounge in the sun. We guarantee that you’ll experience the perfect blend of relaxation and excitement on our diving tours.

Beaches

If you’re planning a trip to Belize to just relax, swim, and soak up the sun on the beach, you have to check out “the Split” in Caye Caulker. The Split separates the northern and southern parts of the island and is one of the most popular places to hang out on the water. It is free of seaweed and seagrass, and the beautiful clear water is always warm. The Split is a perfect place to have a picnic after a long day of scuba diving or to watch the sunset. In fact, the dock at the Split provides spectacular views of the ocean as the sun rises or sets.

Dining

While you’re planning a trip to Belize, you should definitely seek out some of the top culinary experiences in the region. Belizean cuisine is a dynamic blend of all ethnicities and cuisines and offers something for everyone. Typical Belizean dishes include rice, beans, potato salad, pork, shrimp, or game meat. After a long day scuba diving in Caye Caulker, be sure to visit these top Belize restaurants in the area: Pasta Per Caso Anno & Armando (Italian), Chef Juan’s Kitchen and Pastries (Caribbean) , or Crepes & Dreams (Canadian).
