Two worlds. Above the waterline, and below it.

Belize is one of the best places to visit in Central America. Thereís plenty to do. From ancient ruins and jungle trekking to a homegrown culinary scene and amazing islands and beaches, Belize is a one-stop destination and one of my favorites.

On my last visit, I made a beelineto Ambergris Caye, an old-school, barefoot-minded paradise where locals and visitors get around by golf carts. Itís laid-back and carefree, with a bohemian edge. I stayed at Victoria House, a 42-room, British-colonial-designed boutique that has a variety of room types (from plantation rooms to infinity suites). Here, I was reminded of how luxury can be so simple. Victoria House has a prime location considering itís the launching point for many water excursions thanks to its pier. Itís just minutes away by boat to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve thatís chockfull of sting rays, sea turtles, and other marine life. Shark Ray Alley, the second stop on the excursion, is where I got up-close and personal with friendly nurse sharks and manta rays. You can opt to stay in the boat, but I had to make good use of my underwater camera. Hardcore divers will easily make the trip to the famous Blue Hole, a large sinkhole that drops 400 feet in the ocean.
