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!

Meet Leonel!

Meet Leonel!

Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.” 

                                                Andy Warhol 

 

Leonel is like a breath of fresh air. He embodies the Belizean spirit. His smile is contagious and you can't help but want to take him home with you. Because Leonel  sees the beauty. He sees the beauty in people. And he sees the beauty in art. St George's Caye isn't complete without Leo's beautiful outlook. 

 

When you arrive to St. George's Caye Resort Leo is one of the first team members you'll meet. You will mostly find him mixing your favorite cocktails and making sure your beer is ice cold. But Leo also loves to entertain. He's full of fun card tricks and bar games that will leave you scratching you're head. But don't ask him how he does it - because he won't tell. Sworn to secrecy by a fellow magician Leo takes his oath seriously and won't share the tricks of the trade.

 

Leonel knows how we do just about everything here at St. George's Caye. And can help you find you way around, grab you a fresh coconut drink or help you book your tours and diving. 

 

But when Leo is not using his talents to create amazing vacations for our guests - he uses his time to make art. Beautiful art. Check out some of his latest paintings. They go fast so hurry on down to Belize to grab a unique piece of art. Aren't these amazing!?

Before painting, Leo was an artist designing and creating tattoos and t-shirts for special occasions. He was recently in Belize City at the annual tattoo expo sharing his love for art with others.

Like many of our team members Leonel was born and raised in Valley of Peace, Cayo District in Belize. His father is a farmer like many Valley residents - as the area is ripe for healthy crops and cattle - and his mother is a chef at a local restaurant. Leo has a brother David, who is a team member in the kitchen and younger sister who is continuing her education. 

 

Come see the beauty Leonel sees everyday at St George's Caye Resort. His beautiful spirit is essential to a care-free vacation in Belize. 

 

Check out our latest special here! Cheers!

Why You Need an Unplugged Vacation

Why You Need an Unplugged Vacation

What exactly is an unplugged vacation? Well, it’s a vacation sans television and phones focused on people - where you literally unplug yourself from the 24/7 cycle of electronic input. Laptops and cell phones consume our lives just about all day, every day. Elections, war news, stock markets, work emails, kids homework, text messages from your mother - it's hard to go ten minutes without checking your devices. But all these things take us away from the main reason we go on vacation - to get away from the daily grind, to reconnect, to refresh.

 

So why not purposely take a vacation designed to help you unplug? Designed to encourage true relaxation. Most of us are addicted to electronics and don't even realize it. Ask yourself, when is the last time I went to bed without watching the news? Or checking email - one last time?

 

Why plan unplugged vacation? Here are 5 Reasons you need to consider it:

 

  • Your brain needs to detox. There is a gland in your brain called the pineal gland. Its responsible for regulating melatonin, which helps you to relax and get to sleep. Your computer screen overstimulates the pineal gland. When it’s overstimulated the melatonin in your body is suppressed and your sleep and rest periods will be automatically more difficult. Give your brain a break!

 

  • Memories are not made staring into screens! Memories are made laughing over meals or chasing hermit crabs on the shore. Memories are made exploring ancient Mayan Ruins or hiking through jungles. Memories are made in private cabanas and staring into one another's eyes. You will return home with unforgettable memories.

 

  • You'll have more sex! If you go to bed with the TV on you are 50% less likely to have sex. Enough said!  A study by an Italian sexologist has found that couples who have a TV set in their bedroom have sex half as often as those who don't. "If there's no television in the bedroom, the frequency (of sexual intercourse) doubles," said Serenella Salomoni. Physically connecting with your partner benefits you both. And you will likely sleep better.

 

  • Unplugged vacations encourage movement. Our bodies and our minds are happier when we move. When there is no television to watch you're more likely to take a leisurely walk  go for a swim in the salty sea. You are more likely to be more active.

 

  • Because at the end of the day - people matter most. Reconnect with your partner. Or your best friend. Or yourself! Cultivating healthy relationships is difficult when we are constantly distracted my text messages and emails. When is the last time you sat quietly and focused on yourself or your partner to the exclusion of everything else for days at a time? It will change your perspective and allow for more meaningful relationships.

 

St. George's Caye Resort in Belize is intentionally designed to help you disconnect with the noise of your busy life. And reconnect with yourself. We make it possible for you to check your email - just not inside your private Cabana. No televisions are to be found and most people won't get a cell phone signal. But no need to worry! We are not totally off the grid. Just enough to allow you to relax and experience the magic.

12 private thatched roof cabanas nestled on a tiny island. No roads. No stores. Just peaceful nature surrounds you. A place you can truly unwind, let loose, and relax. You will find yourself lost in the abundance of fish when your snorkel the Belize Barrier Reef. It will remind you how big and beautiful the world is and how your forgot you loved to travel. When you climb Mayan Temples with your partner you imagine what it was like living there all those years ago and it sparks an interesting conversation you may never have had. When you meet new friends at the beach BBQ you'll share stories of love and laughter underneath a sky full of stars. People matter most here at St. George's Caye Resort. Come share the magic of an unplugged vacation.

Get Caught with Your Pants Down!

We rarely have dull moments at the Caye. This Christmas in Belize was no different. Over the Holidays we had the pleasure of meeting a fun couple with an awesome goal of bringing Cancer checkups to the front of our minds. Cancer Below The Belt was founded by Mr. Kelley Gale Amen to bring awareness to cancers specific to our underpants region - or below the belt. His unique way of raising this awareness is to get people to pose for a picture - with their pants down! Our staff and guests were a bit shy when Kelley first asked if we would participate in the photo challenge. But when manager Barry posed for his picture with his pants down - the game was on!

 Check out the slideshow of our guests having fun with the challenge. 

 AND NOW...

We challenge you to help raise awareness posting your photos on social media using the hashtag #getcaughtwithyourpantsdown - and to get your regular checkups!

You can find Kelley's cause on the following Social Media outlets:
