Come along on a journey to the stunning country of Belize, where you can indulge in the ideal blend of excitement and serenity. We are excited to share that our new Adventure Officer, David, will be accompanying us on this trip. David is an expert in breathwork and mindfulness and a passionate traveler in his own right. Additionally, he happens to be the younger sibling of our Chief Adventure Officer, Sonya Lowery, and he is eager to become a part of the World Next Door family!
Belize became famous for its Blue Hole, the world’s largest ocean sinkhole. It also holds the second largest reef in the world, after the Great Barrier Reef. December is the perfect month to visit Belize! Likelihood of rainfall is very low, the skies are clear, and the weather is warm, making it one of the most desirable months for tourists to visit.
Belize borders Guatemala, Mexico, and Honduras and has over 230 miles of coastline and hundreds of cayes (pronounced "keys"). During free time on our trip, you may wish to take excursions to other cayes which will require a boat ride or a short flight, depending on where you'd like to go. Our resort is located on Ambergris Caye, one of the most popular islands off the mainland.
Since this trip will allot ample time to rest, relax, and recharge, we have selected a luxury resort with comfortable amenities - seven nights at the 4.5 star Alaia Belize Autograph Collection. It is an oceanside resort, so you will have easy access to the beach with plenty of time to enjoy old friends and new, or set aside some time for personal reflection and self-discovery.
The Vista Studio features a king-sized bed and a resort view with an outdoor space. The Vista Studio is at the center of it all, ensuring guests are always footsteps away from the resort's swimming pools, piano bar, and restaurants. You may only select this package if you have a roommate already established and are comfortable sharing a king bed.
