Private Helicopter Tour over World’s 2nd largest Barrier Reef

On luxury travel, I like to go all out to show you just what can be achieved when you truly want to create ‘A Trip Of A Lifetime.’ Belize was this in every way, but in a completely contrasting way to neighbouring Guatemala.

More than half of it is covered in rainforests sheltering indigenous, unique and endangered species. The other half boasts some of the best beaches in the world fringed by the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef (190 Miles). Snorkelling and diving here are world-renowned. The Caribbean way of life completes the alluring set.

I had the chance to fly by private helicopter from Belize City to Ambergris Caye with Astrum Helicopters†. Best experience of my life to date – that is all I can say. I’ve never seen such dazzling aquamarines and turquoises over offshore Cayes and Atolls. Enjoy the pics!
