Be Good to Yourself 2019

Take the time this year to get away and balance Take the time this year to get away and balance

Most people know that the top New Year's resolutions made are for better health and balance of responsibilities with time to enjoy the important things. 

When thinking of health, many will run out and join the gym or pick up the latest Pilates video series with hopes of refining their body. What are other things that effect this overall goal? For many, living a fast paced life means there is little time to pause and enjoy the world around them. This is shown to drastically effect health adversely. 

At St. George's Caye Resort and surrounding destinations we see travelers for many reasons. Guests may be celebrating the beginning or rekindling of romance, bucket-list diving, seeking adventure, or just to escape from it all. 

Most importantly we see people begin their trip still wanting and needing to feel connected with their phones. Slowly but surely that "connection" become less and less important as they reconnect with life, environment and relationships. NBC News featured an article on 5 Scientifically Proven Health Benefits to Travel

With all of these compelling reason to travel and admittedly, a pretty sizable planet, how do you narrow where you are going this year?

If you thrive in an urban environment, you may want to travel to New York City or London. If you are meant to brave the wilderness, working to survive the elements, possibly Tanzania or Nepal suit your travel fancy. Conversely, if you wish to relax and be pampered while completely unplugging and enjoying adventures of a lifetime, Belize may be just the ticket.


Cheers and see you in the sun in 2019!

The Gift of Experience Comes in a Beautiful Package

The sky over St. George's Caye Resort - Adventure, Jungle excursions from a secluded island paradise. Heavenly skies over St. George's Caye

Take a second and think back to around this time last year. Here, let us help. You were likely surrounded by family, food and friends. The mood was holiday-ish and you were ferociously giving or preparing to exchange gifts with everyone around you.

Now, what did you receive? Do you remember?

Ok, mental test, do you remember the vacations / mini-trips you took last year? Maybe it was a trip to the local theater for a play, or a concert or big league baseball game. Or, maybe you traveled to a foreign land or simply just a stay-cation at a local hotel. Chances are you not only remember where you went but can visualize and tell a story of the experience in vivid detail.

This is a great case for experiences as gifts. This year, instead of heading to the local big box store to buy gift cards for the closest restaurant chain, or worse yet, a gift card to that said big box store, try buying a portion of, or an entire experience for your loved ones.

A Cornell University Study finds that, "The satisfaction we get from buying vacations, bikes for exercise and other experiences starts high and keeps growing. The initial high we feel from acquiring a flashy car or megascreen TV, on the other hand, trails off rather quickly…" "Your experiences are inherently less comparative, they're less subject to and less undermined by invidious social comparisons," said professor of psychology Thomas Gilovich, who published the study with Travis J. Carter, Ph.D. '10, in a recent issue of Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

 This experience can be as simple as a local vineyard tour, or as complex as international travel. They key is to give the recipient the chance to make memories of a lifetime and relish in your gift for years to come!

Best wishes and Season's Greetings from St. George's Caye Resort!

Fresh Perspective From Paradise

Three-time gold medal cyclist, Kristin Armstrong was quoted in saying, "It's not only moving that creates new starting points. Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, an intentional pause and reset, or a new route to start to see new options and new possibilities."

Perspective is a vantage point that is purely your own… Or is it?

We often receive pictures and videos from our guest. They have enjoyed this seclusion and natural beauty of our island and what they capture is awe inspiring. On this occasion, we wanted to share another's fresh perspective of paradise. Maybe it will help you to gain a new outlook too. Thank you, Leah Flores for capturing these moments. 

Spend hours in total relaxation next to the Caribbean teal blue, allowing time to think in peace or to totally clear your mind, body and soul. Return to home feeling relieved, reflective and restored.
Bask in the morning sunlight while sipping freshly squeezed juices and, carefully brewed coffee, delivered right to your room. #heavenlymorning

 St. George's Caye is a place, far from the hustle and bustle of the day, where you can disconnect and share in experiences that enrich many facets of life. From adventure to relaxation or romance, the island is truly made for any vacation desires.

  The views are breathtaking and the options for activities are endless. Learn to SCUBA dive or snorkel, grab a hobie cat or kayak and explore the clear blue waters, or simply relax next to the saline pool and soak up some rays.

At the end of your day, spent however you wish, fall back into the comforts of home away from home. With a full belly and a day full of relaxation or adventure, you will find the ultimate relaxation in our sunrise oceanfront, sunset over the water, or tropical garden cabanas, or in our immaculate oceanfront villa suites.

Kristin Armstrong said it best, "When everything is moving and shifting, the only way to counteract chaos is stillness. When things feel extraordinary, strive for ordinary. When the surface is wavy, dive deeper for quieter waters."

We invite you for a change of perspective at the island. Message us today to come away!

Tips for Finding Cheap Flights

A member of our team recently purchased tickets for a summer vacation and she had this to share: "What I have found in the past week is that prices can change within the same day from morning to afternoon, and may go up again for two weeks, then suddenly drop again. My tip - set a reminder to check multiple times every day and be ready to BUY when you see a good deal!"

 

Which Airlines Fly to Belize?

There are connecting flights to Belize through Houston, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Newark, Chicago (seasonal), Denver, and Los Angeles. Flight time is just over two hours from Texas airports, making Belize an easily accessible destination for most of the US.

The following US-based airlines fly to Belize (BZE): United, American, Delta, and Southwest Airlines. Plus several international carriers like Copa and Avianca, and the local Belize carrier Tropic Air does international flights from Honduras and Mexico.

Blues in Belize :: A Private Island Blues Experience

Blues in Belize :: A Private Island Blues Experience

Imagine you and your friends sitting out by the beach fire. Guitars and harps in hand. The warm breeze is blowing to the rhythm of your beat. The stars have come out to watch and listen. The moon even rising to the occasion. You stop only momentarily to refuel with warm BBQ off the grill. And the jam continues until the last breath of fire. The next morning with the sunrise you'll tell stories of creative genius and drunken stupidity over coffee and fresh squeezed juice. You'll trade tales of heartbreak and inspired lyrics during breakfast. You'll bathe in the Caribbean Sea for even more inspired lyrics. Imagine no more…
