7 Reasons Destination Weddings are the Best

destination-wedding-beach-belize-islandjpg

You're engaged! Congratulations! After popping the question, there are so many exciting decisions to make in the wedding planning process! One of the very first (and important!) decisions to make is to choose whether your wedding will be held locally or at a destination of your choosing. Typically, a destination wedding involves holding your ceremony and reception more than 100 miles from where you live, usually a sunny beach location (Belize is a great option!).

According to a recent post on Tripsavvy.com, 25% of all weddings are destination weddings, and they seem to be growing in popularity. Your wedding will be one-of-a-kind, as you won't have to choose from the same hometown wedding venues, and it will be a celebration your guests will always remember!

So what's so great about destination weddings? We're so glad you asked! Read on for seven reasons why we think they are the best!

1. Does it get any better than extending the celebration over a few days? On average, guests will stay 3 or more days at the wedding location. Couples will have plenty of opportunity to celebrate with their guests over multiple days and can host pre and post wedding activities such as dinners together, lounging by the pool, spa treatments, and excursions such as fishing or zip lining!

2. The guest list for destination weddings tends to be smaller and more intimate, with an average guest count of 38. Your guests will be your closest family and friends, and you'll get quality time with each one of them- especially when everyone is staying at the same resort.

3. When you plan a destination wedding, you can leave the details to the on-site experts. Most resorts will have a planner assigned to arrange all of the needed paperwork, officiant, and other important details of your day. This makes planning a breeze!

4. Travel to a new place! Is an overwater bungalow on your bucket list? Have you always wanted to dip your toes in the ocean? Experience the culture of another country or an area of your own country? You can literally choose any destination your heart desires, and spend as much time as you'd like exploring before and after your celebration!

5. Stay for your honeymoon! A destination wedding basically doubles as a wedding and a vacation. Once your guests have gone home, it's easy to continue your honeymoon at the same location! Bonus- you could split your time and jet off to another location and experience two different honeymoon locations!

6. Your photos will be incredible! One of the reasons couples choose a destination wedding is for a gorgeous location. Whether that's a tropical beach or in the middle of the mountains, you're pretty much guaranteed an amazing backdrop for your wedding!

7. Save money with a destination wedding. According to The Knot, the national average cost of a wedding in 2018 was $33,931. All weddings are unique, so costs can vary greatly from person to person, but smaller, more intimate destination weddings tend to cost less than a traditional celebration.

Weddings at St. George's Caye Resort 

We have the perfect backdrop for your celebration right here at St. George's Caye Resort! Our little slice of paradise is abundant with incredible ceremony settings from the beach to our gardens! 

Our experienced coordinator makes planning easy and will arrange all of the needed paperwork and an officiant, as well as help you obtain your Belize marriage license and select local vendors for your big day.

We also offer an online gift registry- choose the resort and Belize experiences you'd like to receive as gifts from family and friends!

Beautiful Sunsets at St. George's Caye Resort Beautiful Sunsets at St. George's Caye Resort

Have you ever noticed that after some vacations... you need another vacation just to decompress? We heard recently from a perspective guest who was shocked at our difference or the uniqe quality of St. George's Caye Resort. She said, "I travel all the time and I have not really found a place where our goal could be to do nothing. That sounds so refreshing. What a difference." 

It is rare in this day and age to find time to sit still. Expecially without a device and social media keeping you constantly engaged, with seldom a silent moment. 

The University of Michigan Medical School recomends some actions to take to reduce stress and fully relax. Bring these techniques with you and we will create the perfect enviromnet to try them out! 

Take slow, deep breaths. Or try other breathing exercises for relaxation. Stress Management: Breathing Exercises for Relaxation

Do yoga. You can get books and videos to do at home or take a yoga class. Stress Management: Practicing Yoga to Relax

Practice mindful meditation. The goal of mindful meditation is to focus your attention on things that are happening right now in the present moment. For example, listen to your body. Is your breathing fast, slow, deep, or shallow? Do you hear noises, such as traffic, or do you hear only silence? The idea is just to note what is happening without trying to change it. Stress Management: Doing Meditation

5 Reasons to Visit Belize this Spring

oceantfront-bungalow-belize-ocean

As cold air settles in over a large number of countries around the world, many people are dreaming up warm, tropical vacations. Spring is the perfect time to pack your bags for a long weekend and visit Belize where is it always summer! Read on for 5 reasons why a spring vacation to Belize is the perfect choice.


Easter

Easter is the single, longest public holiday in Belize lasting four days from Good Friday to Easter Monday. Schools are closed for a full week and families take time for peace and reflection. There is also no shortage of celebration, as there are many festivities scheduled in addition to religious ceremonies.


The weather is beautiful

We are blessed with an endless-summer here in Belize! The weather pattern does begin to shift in March with daytime temperatures in the high 70's and low 80's. By the later part of May, temps rise into the 90's during the day. Warm, sunny days and breezy nights make for the perfect time to visit! For more details about our weather patterns, especially here on the Caye, click here. 


Belize Chocolate Festival

A three-day festival celebrating all things chocolate? Yes, please! Cacao farm tours, local food and wine featuring chocolate, and music are just a few of the highlights of the celebration. This significant cultural event will be held in Toledo May 18th-20th, 2020.


Lighter crowds

Travel to Belize tends to taper off a little during the spring months. Take time to visit San Pedro markets and restaurants in a less crowded atmosphere, and explore caves and historical landmarks in a more leisurely fashion during this time. As always, St. George's is your spot for ultimate relaxation and privacy all year long. ;)


Just because!

Do you really need a better reason to visit than "just because"? It's good to take a break from the daily hustle and bustle of life every now and then. Here at the island you can choose to do as much or as little as you'd like. Many of our guests visit us and never leave the island- they simply relax and recharge on our little slice of secluded paradise!


Visiting Belize is easier than you think- many airlines from the U.S. fly direct to Belize City, making it an easy extended weekend vacation destination. We hope to see you in the sun this spring! 


St. George's Caye Resort is located 7 miles by boat transfer from the Belize City marina.

Your "Unbelizable" Girls Getaway!

Girls-Getaway-to-St.-Georges-Caye-Resort-Belize-Relaxation Relax with a girls getaway to St. George's Caye - Belize

Every lady needs a girl's weekend. With how crazy life is, quality time with friends doesn't happen as often as we'd like. Time with friends is essential for the soul just like sunshine, rest, and laughter. This time is scientifically proven to be good for you so grab your gals and pencil it in! 

Getting away with the girls is fun, but did you know it's also great for your health and well-being? It has been proven that strong friendships can extend life expectancy and lower chances of heart disease. In 2016, researchers found evidence that spending time with friends can increase the production of Oxycontin, the hormone our bodies make when we're happy!

Set a date: We know it can be difficult to work around everyone's schedules, which is why it's important to plan in advance (a year ahead of time is not out of the question!) and get a date set on the calendar. 4-5 nights with travel included seems to be the perfect amount of time for a getaway with the girls. It's not too short and not so long that it's hard for friends to commit to the trip.

​Choose a destination: Choosing your destination is the most exciting piece of planning, as it should be! There are a few things to consider during this phase of planning. Do you want to completely relax and spend your days lounging and chatting with friends, or are you looking for a little adventure? What accommodations are important? Do you want to spend time in a popular tourist destination, or does a place off the beaten path sound better?

"While we all love our families, it has been proven that friendship can extend life expectancy, lower chances of heart disease, and even help us better tolerate pain. Really!" Read more... - Travel & Leisure

Visit us at St. George's Caye:

We offer the luxury of both relaxation and adventure, which allows you to personalize your stay with us. Spend time discovering the underwater life off the dock by grabbing some complimentary snorkel gear and exploring for an afternoon. Indulge and unwind with a massage or manicure from our amazing island spa team. Or schedule an island excursion to San Pedro! This excursion is the perfect mix- a little bit of snorkeling or diving, lunch, and an afternoon of shopping and exploring. Even "hammock time" is an approved activity here on the island, so do as much of that as you'd like! 

Want us to do the planning? Book our Girls Getaway package and your activities will be set! The Girls Getaway package includes a manicure, pedicure, one-hour Swedish massage, as well as a guided snorkel trip over our amazing coral reef! It's the ultimate combination of relaxation and adventure.

If you're from the United States, Belize is an easy international destination to travel to, as there are many direct flights from the U.S., English is the official language, and U.S. currency is widely accepted. Just grab your passport, pack your bags, and you and your girls are off to an epic getaway!

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. You were likely prepping for holiday time, anticipating parties and togetherness with family, food and friends. 

The mood was hustle and bustle to shop and not let anything go un-perfected for the upcoming holidays. And so it goes again this year...

Year after year the prep for the Holidays is busy, sometimes stressful and before you know it all of that focus has led to time that has come and gone. 

This is a great case for experiences as gifts. Once the dust of the Holiday settles, you are thrown back into work and routine. This year, instead of heading to the local big box store to buy gift cards for the closest restaurant chain, 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!

We may just have a subtle suggestion on a great destination! St. George's Caye Resort is found 7-miles from main-land Belize City. Transfers are made by boat and once you have landed at BZE International Airport, your valet will have you on the island's sandy shores in under 30 minutes.

Why you need an Unplugged Belize Vacation in the New Year

Belize-island-vacation-by-the-pool Belize Island Time

What exactly is an unplugged vacation? Imagine time minus television, computers, iPads and phones, time focused on people - where you literally unplug yourself from sensory overload! We challenge you to get away from the daily grind, to reconnect, to refresh. 

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 or Facebook - one last time? So why not take an intentional break from the hum of daily life?

Here are 4 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.

- 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.

Snorkel in Belize at our Beach Resort

St. George's Caye Resort in Belize is perfectly 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 secluded tropical 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.

We invite you to experience the magic of an unplugged private island getaway at St. George's Caye Resort - The Gem of Belize. Getting here is easy - Leaving is hard!

The Skies are Bigger in Belize

The Skies are Bigger in Belize The skies are endless in Belize

When it's time for a dose of perspective, just look at the night sky. They say the skies are bigger in Belize. Whether it's day or night, the skyline view from the island feels epic in proportion.

We are honored to witness this amazing thing that happens when guests come away; they seem to transform. Whether it's through the experience that they have, the sights they see, the food they taste, or the sea air that they smell, it allows them to disconnect from who they are every single day.

This totally natural shift in focus allows one to reassess who they want to be when they return home.

Of course, we host leisure travelers that are simply looking for a chance to relax and "un-think". But, just that pure experience creates change and a pause that is healthy.

We hope you take it from us, the experts in big skies, that there's nothing more beautifully adequate then you need it, than a shooting star.

St. George's Caye Resort is located 7 miles by boat transfer from the Belize City marina.

We look forward to seeing you in the sun!

Where is Belize Anyway?

Where is Belize Anyway? Take flight to Belize!

Are you anticipating planning your next getaway? You literally have a world of options.

We are, of course partial to our little cultural and ecological gem but we love hearing of our guest's other worldly travels. For those of you who hear the word "Belize" and wonder, "Where is that country anyway?" We want to give you lots of fun details about our small but fulfilling destination!

Travelers often think of Belize for a quick trip because many US international airports offer direct flights. Houston, Atlanta, Miami and seasonally even chilly Minneapolis offer direct non-stop flights. Belize is also on the Central time zone so when traveling from the US, we are just a couple hours difference from most US states. 

So, where is Belize Anyway?

Belize is located on the eastern coast of Central America, just south of Mexico. Our warm climate, natural beauty, historical sites, along with the second largest barrier reef in the world, make Belize an excellent vacation destination!

Fast Facts about Belize

  • Belize has a population of 392,407 and has the lowest population density in Central America with 35 people per square mile.
  • Although Belize City is the largest city in the country (it is also the country's main port and industrial hub), the city of Belmopan is the capital of Belize.
  • Belize has around 450 islands called Cayes "(pronounced "keys").
  • Time Zone: Central Standard Time (CST) and does not observe daylight savings time.
  • Climate: Subtropical. Temperatures range from 50-95 degrees, with an average temperature of 80.
  • English is the official language of Belize, although almost all Belizeans speak several languages such as Spanish, Mayan, and Garifuna.
  • The U.S. Dollar is widely accepted throughout Belize. The Belize Dollar has a 2:1 exchange rate, which means your money goes further during your vacation!

 Top Tourist Attractions

Lamanai Maya Ruins: Lamanai features three large pyramids, various restored stelae, and open plazas as well as a unique ball court.

Great Blue Hole :The Great Blue Hole is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and remains one of the top dive sites in the world. St. George's offers a full-day dive trip to the Blue Hole for experienced and advanced divers.

Ambergris Caye/San Pedro: This 25-mile long island is popular with the snorkeling and diving communities due to the easy access of the barrier reef. After your underwater adventures, explore San Pedro, Ambergris' main town. Here you'll find beachside restaurants, lounges, and shops! Here at St. George's, you can easily explore San Pedro by booking our San Pedro Slam excursion.

Hol Chan Marine Reserve: This is a prime spot for snorkeling and diving due to the clear waters and abundant sea life. It is separated into four zones: mangroves, reef, sea-grass beds, and Shark Ray Alley. 

How to get to Belize

Visiting from the U.S.? Getting to Belize is easy-peasy! It's not unheard of to swing down for an extended weekend trip, as there are many direct flights out of hubs such as Dallas-Ft. Worth, Chicago, Miami, LA, and more. Many of these airlines fly to Belize daily, which makes it easier than ever to visit us!

If you are flying in from Canada, check out airlines such as WestJet, Air Canada, and Avianca for

When looking for flights, be sure to arrive at Phillip S.W. Goldson International Airport (BZE).

Belize truly is a gem, and we hope you've now added it to your travel bucket list!

Go on Holiday for the Holidays - In Belize!

Service-with-a-smile-small Service With A Smile!

For many, plans of a garland dressed table and candle light meal are awaiting them during the holiday season. This all takes a lot of planning and work. If you want to change it up this year and be served during the season, please come and see us! Or, extend your holidays and take a trip before or after your family festivities! The holidays are some of our favorite days to host our guests and we put on all the frills!

Travel journalist Sarah Pascarella writes in her travel article, "The first two weeks of December, as well as the week following New Year's Day are known within the industry as travel "dead" weeks. The reason, most people are busy at home with holiday preparations and job commitments, and hotels and planes are typically much emptier than usual. That means you have a great chance of finding a cheap flight for your travels..."

We agree that this time is prime time if you want to find relief from the hustle and bustle of shopping, prepping, cooking and cards. Whether you want to be whisked away and let someone else create the perfect holiday for you or extend your season, November – January are incredible months to travel to Belize.

Unbelizeable Birding in Belize

birding in belize

Did you know Belize is a favorite Central American birding spot? Because of our ideal climate, as many as 600 different species of birds have been recorded throughout the country! Around 80% of the birds in Belize are here year-round, while the other 20% migrate from North America between January and April to escape the harsh winter, or South America during the Belizean summer months.

While you can spot birds all over the mainland and cayes, the Belize Audubon Society has identified seven Important Birding Areas (IBAs). Portions of these areas are located within protected areas.

The seven areas include:

  • Blue Hole National Monument
  • Half Moon Caye Natural Monument
  • Guanacaste National Park

Top 4 Ways to Avoid Crowds During your Belize Vacation

Waking-Up-Ocean-Front-Cabana-St.-George's-Caye-Resort-Belize

In March of 2019, 100 million people responding to a AAA survey said they were traveling this year, the majority in fall and winter. If you're finding this year that there's a little too much togetherness — we mean with your fellow travelers, we have a couple of ideas for keeping the crowds at bay this fall and winter!

Travel during Belize's "low season"

There is really no "bad" time to travel to Belize. Each season comes with its own added perks. From prime time Grand Slam Fishing season,  to September Celebrations. Not to mention, Easter and other holidays like ringing in the New Year! No matter when you travel, we do have some key tips on how to avoid crowds during your trip. 

Schedule in some down time

Belize offers many opportunities for adventure, but be sure to plan a couple days to simply relax. Building in some unstructured time will allow you to recharge and avoid feeling like you need a "vacation from your vacation". Here at the resort, hammock time is an approved and well-loved activity!

Choose a remote island destination ;)

We may be a little biased on this concept. While there are many places to stay on the mainland, choosing a resort that is tucked away from the crowded tourist destinations is the perfect choice! At St. George's Caye, we're conveniently located only 7 miles away from Belize City, making it easily accessible from the mainland yet worlds away! We host a maximum of 35-40 guests at a time, so you can rest easy knowing the island will never feel crowded.


Go off the beaten path

While Belize city is not really set up for tourists so we always want to be your guide, we know the best places for the perfect excursion for your ultimate rest and relaxation. Some excursions, such as San Pedro Slam or our Belize Cultural Adventure, will take you to areas of Belize that tend to be very popular. For a quieter and less social adventure, try snorkel, diving or for cultural fun, the Lamanai Maya Ruins or St. Herman's Cave. Or even better, just treat yourself to some rest and relaxation with the Tropical Island Spa and a little hammock time!



St. George's Caye Resort is located 7 miles by boat transfer from the Belize City marina. 

We look forward to seeing you in the sun!

5 Foods you Must Try When Visiting Belize

Dining-2

When visiting St. George's Caye - Belize, one thing is for certain- you will never go hungry! 

First thing in the morning, at the Sand Bar Lounge, you will find a sweet assortment of granola, fruit and yogurt. That is just an appetizer. Breakfast, made to order, typically consists of bread, flour tortillas, or a Belizean specialty, fry jacks that are often served with cheese, refried beans, eggs, etc… Midday meals may include soup, rice and beans, stew chicken, and tamales, while dinner typically consists of a meat, rice and beans, and salad or coleslaw. Serve up lunch and dinner with an ice cold Belikin Beer or tropical mixed drink and you have the makings for satisfaction!

Belize is a melting pot when it comes to cuisine, and with so many delicious dishes to choose from your taste buds will be on cloud nine. Read on to learn about the five foods we think everyone should try when visiting Belize. 

Fry Jack

Fry jacks are one of the most popular foods in Belize. They are small triangles of dough that are fried until golden brown and served warm. Normally eaten for breakfast and served alongside refried beans, sausage, eggs, etc.. A drizzle of honey on top turns a savory fry jack into a decadent delight!

Rice and Beans

Rice and beans is the Belizean national dish composed of a base of red kidney beans and rice and cooked in coconut milk. Typically served with stewed chicken, but any meat will do! It is traditionally served with a Belizean style potato salad. 

Click here for an awesome recipe for Fry Jacks

Stew Chicken or Pork

Belizean comfort food at its finest! Chicken or pork is rubbed in Red recado or achiote paste and slow-cooked in broth. Served over rice and beans for lunch or dinner. This dish will leave you feeling full and happy! Click here for a recipe!

Tamales (Bollo)

Belizeans put their own twist on the traditional Mexican tamale by wrapping them with plantain leaves instead of corn husks. Seasoned meat (chicken or pork) is wrapped in a soft corn dough and then steamed in plantain leaves. They can also be vegetarian by substituting the meat with vegetables. 

Conch Fritters

Fresh sea food is abundant in Belize, and a crowd favorite is conch. Conch fritters are a popular appetizer, and are made from a batter of Conch, sweet peppers, onions, celery, flour, and seasonings and then deep fried to perfection! Yum!

Whether breakfast, lunch or dinner is your favorite, you will be sure to find a new and robust palate of flavors to excite the senses. We welcome you to our table. Be our guest! 


St. George's Caye Resort is located 7 miles by boat transfer from the Belize City marina. We look forward to seeing you in the sun!

"Prana" - Wellness in Paradise

Yoga on the sun dock Yoga on the sun dock

If you have seen the word "Prana" and wondered what it meant, it is essentially "life force". Found through meditation and exercises like yoga and martial arts, this practice incorporates natural movements to rejuvenate the body and soul. The benefits of practicing this and other types of wellness in nature are unending. Scientific studies indicate that time spent in nature is not only good for stress relief, it is a way to be healthier overall.

Vacation can simply be a chance to get away from the daily grind but more and more, traveling is a way to enrich one's life and reconnect with the world around you. Here at St. George's we offer many opportunities to do just that.

Yoga or meditate on our sunrise dock

Take time to reflect and reconnect with yourself while being surrounded by the breathtaking views and fresh, oxygen rich breezes of the Caribbean sea.

Hike nature trails at Blue Hole National Park

Explore outside the island by taking an excursion to Blue Hole National park. Get up close and personal with the Belize jungle environment while hiking the nature trails and taking in the breathtaking views. Explore St. Herman's Cave, and then take a dip in the Inland Blue Hole- a sapphire-colored sinkhole surrounded by jungle vegetation and limestone rock walls, forming a 25-foot deep swimming hole.

Healthy farm-to-table meals

We'll take care of serving you healthy and delicious food and our chef is happy to work within your dietary preferences. Fresh fish, fruits, vegetables, and juices are sourced locally and are served with pride at every meal! 

Unwind with a relaxing massage at our tropical island spa

Our island spa is the place to be when you're ready to let all your cares melt away. Relaxing massages, manicures, and head-to-toe pampering await you in our cozy sanctuary dedicated to the ultimate pampering experience. 

Fitter in the future

We have hosted many wellness groups ranging from groups with an adventure-wellness focus, to yoga groups totaling 30+ people, and we hope to offer guided wellness events in the future. 

We will make mention of this offering once it is unveiled, but in the meantime, you are more than welcome to bring your group to the island for the most incredible backdrop for your wellness event.

- Healthy travels to you and - Namaste

Top 4 Reasons To Plan Your Fall Travel To St. George's Caye

Sunny windward side dock Pick your paradise vantage point!

​If you are like most, you are in awe with how fast this summer is going. Pretty soon, department stores will display back-to- school racks and coffee shops with be filled with the aroma of pumpkin spice lattes. While it doesn't seem like planning a fall vacation should even be within the wheel house at this time, it is a great time to get ahead with one last getaway of the year! Belize is a great destination for a shift of paradigm and although we are a bit biased, we wanted to highlight a few reasons to come away to visit us in the fall!

CELEBRATIONS - Belizeans really know how to celebrate, and they go all out during this time of year with parties and festivals taking place during most of September. St. George's Caye Day is Sept. 10th , and it marks the beginning of celebration through Sept. 21st, which is Belize Independence Day. Check out some of the other events happening around Belize in September:

St. George's Caye Day celebrates and commemorates a battle in 1798 when the Spanish were defeated by slaves, Baymen, and British soldiers. Official cultural ceremonies and parades take place all around Belize on this day.

 Belize Expo Marketplace will be held September 14th and 15th, 2019. Now in it's 23rd year, the expo has become one of the biggest events of the year in Belize. It is a 2 day market showcasing the best products made in Belize. Thousands of people will head to the expo to sample Belizean cuisine and purchase locally-produced goods.

Independence Day is September 21st and is marked by the annual flag raising ceremony and the party continues throughout the day and into the evening with colorful parades, dancing, music, and many other fun activities. 

WEATHER - September weather is "just right" averaging 81 degrees. You'll find plenty of sunshine, and early morning and late night showers. The jungles are in green season and are bursting with color and life!

LESS CROWDED -  Although St. George's really never has crowds, things are a bit more laid back in Belize before the tropical vacation season ramps up. There are so many great excursions and popular sites, such as the Maya Ruins and the ATM Cave, are less populated during this time of year. It's also a great time to connect with the locals, who always warmly welcome visitors from other countries.

THE KIDS ARE BACK IN SCHOOL - After a summer packed full of fun with your kids, it's time to take a quick getaway to refresh and recharge. While September in Belize is full of parties and celebrations, St. George's is tucked away from the main events and is a serene private island paradise where you can kick back and relax.

You can take the "you time" that you have hoped for all summer. Just you and paradise. Let us do the rest!

Rest a Little Easier - 10 Tips for Planning the Perfect Trip to Belize

Relax knowing you planned ahead! Relax knowing you planned ahead!

If you're planning a trip to Belize, chances are good that you've been wowed by the landscape, the opportunity to experience the pristine coral reef system, and of course, the welcoming locals. The excitement is mounting and you're ready to book your tropical Belize vacation. Read on for our insider planning tips and rest easier once you are here!

1. Layers and excursion clothing – Days are balmy and evenings are breezy so dressing in layers is your best bet to stay comfy all day long. Sandals are perfect for your time on the island, but if you plan to explore Belize through our excursions, be sure to bring comfortable walking or hiking shoes as well as long shirts and pants for inland activities.

2. Travel documents- Did you forget your passport?!?  We suggest having copies of all of your documents just in case and pack them first!

3. Nosh Reserves – you will likely pack a few finger foods for your flight, but it's also a good idea to pack a few extra treats for down time on the island. We provide snacks at the bar upon request but it is always nice to have some select favorites on hand if you are lounging or on an excursion. 

4. Reef-Safe Sunscreen – For those surface snorkel days and deeper dives to the reef, we ask that you bring reef-friendly sunscreen. Belize is known to have some of the most pristine and preserved reefs in the world and we aim to keep it that way.

5. Bug juice – Although these pesky little creatures are WAY less prevalent on the island than on the mainland, be sure to bring a dose of some of your favorite bug spray. We provide citronella coils and have bug spray and sunscreen on hand, but if you have a preference for your own brand, we encourage you to come prepared!

6. Airfare – Check early and often but also late and often – Airfare fluctuates considerably, especially during the summer. You may see decreases of up to $300 some days versus others. It is a simple and rewarding way to save!

7. Connect flights with your own connection – As written in our recent blog: "Easy Peasy Off to Belize", a fun travel tip is to plan your own connection. Especially from departure cities in Canada, air travel can be not only make for a long trip but can come with a sizable toll. Creating your own connection can save time and money!

8. Plan to be on island time. The entire country of Belize moves at a, well, slightly slower pace at times. We refer to this as "Island Time". It is the reason that people find so much peace in this beautiful country. Don't worry- it doesn't mean we are any less attentive to your needs, we just want you to relax so we can take care of everything you want while you are here! Your wish is our command!

9. Pick your passions- Be sure to take a look at all for the options for excursions. If you just want to relax, hammock time is an island approved "activity" but there are tons of things to do while you are here. We are the most centrally located island of any destination in Belize, therefore offering the most options for culture, adventure, relaxation, shopping and just some social time.

10. Lonely Planet – Belize – We have found this to be one of the most extensive and comprehensive guides to this small yet culture-filled country. Always fun to catch up on history and fun facts about your destination while you fly, float, and swing in your hammock of choice.

Bonus tip – Most of our excursions (with the exception of long distance SCUBA trips) can be planned the day before you leave. Check out this schedule of our outings and see where your trip will take you!


St. George's Caye Resort is found 7-miles from main-land Belize City. As the closest resort to the airport, you will enjoy complimentary quick and easy transfers once you have landed at BZE International Airport.

Where is Belize Anyway?

Where is Belize Anyway? Pin your map for Belize!

Are you anticipating planning your next getaway? You literally have a world of options.

We are, of course partial to our little cultural and ecological gem but we love hearing of our guest's other worldly travels. For those of you who hear the word "Belize" and wonder where is that anyway, we want to give you lots of fun details about our small but fulfilling country

Where is Belize Anyway?

 Travelers often think of Belize for a quick trip because many US international airports offer direct flights. Houston, Atlanta, Miami and seasonally even chilly Minneapolis offer direct non-stop flights. Belize is also on the Central time zone so when traveling from the US, we are just a couple hours difference from most US states.

So, where is Belize Anyway?

Belize is located on the eastern coast of Central America, just south of Mexico. Our warm climate, natural beauty, historical sites, along with the second largest barrier reef in the world, make Belize an excellent vacation destination!

Snorkel in the Caribbean Sea

 Fast Facts about Belize

  • - Belize has a population of 392,407 and has the lowest population density in Central America with 35 people per square mile.
 - Although Belize City is the largest city in the country (it is also the country's main port and industrial hub), the city of Belmopan is the capital of Belize.
 - Belize has around 450 islands called Cayes "(pronounced "keys").
Time Zone: Central Standard Time (CST) and does not observe daylight savings time.
 - Climate: Subtropical. Temperatures range from 50-95 degrees, with an average temperature of 80.
 - English is the official language of Belize, although almost all Belizeans speak several languages such as Spanish, Mayan, and Garifuna.
 -  Best yet, the U.S. Dollar is widely accepted throughout Belize. The Belize Dollar has a 2:1 exchange rate, which means your money goes further during your vacation!

Jump into a whole new world!

Top Tourist Attractions

Lamanai Maya Ruins: Lamanai features three large pyramids, various restored stelae, and open plazas as well as a unique ball court.

Great Blue Hole :The Great Blue Hole is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and remains one of the top dive sites in the world. St. George's offers a full-day dive trip to the Blue Hole for experienced and advanced divers.

Ambergris Caye/San Pedro: This 25-mile long island is popular with the snorkeling and diving communities due to the easy access of the barrier reef. After your underwater adventures, explore San Pedro, Ambergris' main town. Here you'll find beachside restaurants, lounges, and shops! Here at St. George's, you can easily explore San Pedro by booking our San Pedro Slam excursion.

Hol Chan Marine Reserve: This is a prime spot for snorkeling and diving due to the clear waters and abundant sea life. It is separated into four zones: mangroves, reef, sea-grass beds, and Shark Ray Alley. Experience this amazing dive site by booking the San Pedro Slam excursion on your next visit with us.

Full of color, culture and St. George's Caye Resort Vibes!

 How to get to Belize

Visiting from the U.S.? Getting to Belize is easy-peasy! It's not unheard of to swing down for an extended weekend trip, as there are many direct flights out of hubs such as Dallas-Ft. Worth, Chicago, Miami, LA, and more. Many of these airlines fly to Belize daily, which makes it easier than ever to visit us!

If you are flying in from Canada, check out airlines such as WestJet, Air Canada, and Avianca for

When looking for flights, be sure to arrive at Phillip S.W. Goldson International Airport (BZE).

Your "Un-Belizeable" Summer Vacation - 5 Summer Perks to Come Away to the Island + Summer Specials

Sunset Overwater Cabana Dock See yourself in Belize this summer!

Many people enjoy escaping to Belize during the winter months to enjoy the warm sunshine and ocean breezes. It really is no secret that Belize is a fantastic travel destination and more tourists are flocking to this hidden gem every year. But, did you know that summer is also a wonderful time to visit? Temperatures in Belize are comparable or even more mild than many places in the U.S. during the summer months, and ocean breezes and the shade of coconut trees offer much more relief than you are likely to find in your hometown – plus you will have the luxury of no responsibilities while taking it all in. Read on for our top 5 perks to visiting Belize this summer!

  • It's Grand Slam Fishing Season! Fishing here is excellent year-round, but the best times to catch the "Big Three" of tarpon, bonefish, and permit is in June, July, and August. When you catch all three of these fish, it's known as the "Grand Slam", which is how the fishing season got its name!We are fortunate to be located adjacent to the flats, close to the reef, and a short ride from the Belize River, so guests can enjoy a variety of fishing on their Caribbean vacation.
  • While there isn't a specific time of year that is best for scuba diving, many divers prefer the calmer waters of the Belizean summer. The water is pleasantly warm during the summer at 85°F, and the sea breeze tempers the heat a bit during this time.
  • Temperatures in Belize are comparable to many places in the U.S. during the summer months, and ocean breezes and the shade of coconut trees offer relief. 
  • While summer does mark the beginning of "rainy season", don't be alarmed! This season applies mostly to the mainland (the rain forest needs its rain to thrive after all!). Rain showers are typically brief and intermittent at the island, allowing you plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine!

During the summer months, Belize has less visitors which allows you the opportunity to have more privacy with fewer people while you explore mainland excursions and attractions such as the Maya Ruins.  And you'll find that going through customs & immigration is much faster – very second gained in paradise is a win! 

June marks the start of Belize's lobster season. During this time, you'll find a variety of lobster dishes being served during our farm-to-table, banquet style dining at the resort. 

In addition, Belizeans celebrate in four different parts of the country with Lobsterfest. San Pedro's Lobsterfest is one of the biggest celebrations offering free live music and discounted prices on drinks and lobster. The San Pedro Slam Excursion is a fun way to experience Belizean culture then return for a peaceful rest of your day! Cheers to the best summer yet!


Tell your true, "My fish was this big!" story from Belize!
Sink into the best of both worlds and experience jungle and sea in one trip!
Take your first steps together into paradise!

#EarthDay at St. George's Caye

Sun-in-Paradise-Beach-and-chairs The beauty of this earth is truly something to preserve.

In an era of heightened awareness for sustainability and care for the earth, Earth Day means many things to many people. Here, in Belize, the celebration of Earth Day is a reminder of how fragile our planet is, but also how taking care of our immediate space will greatly impact the rest of the world.

The things that can positively or negatively affect our ecosystems are truly simple everyday choices. Sure, we may not be able to revolutionize entire cities with energy solutions, but small choices like opting out of single-use plastics (we are working to eliminate these at the resort), turning lights and A/C off when you don't need it and trying to source your food locally, you can make a local impact on a global cause. Read more below on 10-Tips for Eco-friendly habits! 

  • 1. Turn it off – Our parents always told us, "Turn off the TV!" or "Turn off the lights when you leave the room!" It usually was to save them on their energy bill. Now it is even more important. Some additional places to remember this practice is when leaving office spaces and hotel rooms.
  • 2. Switch to renewables – You can determine the supply of renewables such as renewable energy by demanding it of your local utility company. Kassie Rohrbach is deputy director of "Ready for 100," a Sierra Club campaign helping mobilize people to demand community-wide clean energy, is cited in a recent article, "Citizens demand for their own homes and towns can help build a clean energy economy on a much larger scale."

4. Don't waste food or compost when you can – Organic matter turns into dirt that can either then be used for fill or also used as a wonderfully nutrient-rich base for planting.

5. Recycle everything – However if you can opt for compostable, use those instead as recycling is not always a safe fall back. We used to think that recycling would solve the world's trash problem. Only making selective choices on what to buy in containers will accomplish that.

6. Drive Less - If you can make the journey by foot, bike or public transport, then do it. Driving, unless you're in an electric vehicle, isn't very eco-friendly and can really add to your carbon footprint. When you do have to drive, make sure that you get the most out of your vehicle by keeping the speed down, ensuring tires are properly inflated and that the engine is running smoothly.

7. Try to cut out plastic – This may sound redundant but it is worth the double mention. Cutting out plastics will not only clean up our land and shorelines, it will reduce the amount of energy used to create the plastic and also to recycle it if it gets to that point. Multiple use containers and just shopping in bulk without needing a container (I.e. for produce) is a great way to reduce the impact you have with the trash you create

8. Use eco-friendly cleaning products – Remember CFCs? They have since been banned, but there are thousands of other toxic chemicals used in cleaning agents. Try to opt for biodegradable and plant-based cleaners on your next shopping trip.

9. Try reducing your consumption of meat and non-native fish. - Even if it's just for two or three days a week - reducing your demand on non local meats can have quite a significant impact on reducing your carbon footprint.

9. Buy local – gogreen.com has many reasons why buying local is a good eco-friendly idea. To name one, buying local reduces your food miles: By shopping locally, you are purchasing goods produced in your local community. Conversely, when you shop at the grocery store, many of the food items you buy travel over 1500 miles to reach your plate. By cutting down on these miles, you are reducing the environmental impact of your food. Local food doesn't create large carbon footprints through overseas plane travel or long truck trips. This cuts down on fuel consumption and air pollution. There isn't a need for shipping facilities, packing facilities or refrigeration.

10. Grow your own - Growing your own veg isn't just a good way to save money, it's also a great way to cut down your carbon footprint and be eco-friendly. Don't have any outside space? Windowsill boxes are a great way to brighten up your view, filter the air coming into your home and offer plenty of space for herbs and small vegetable patches.

Together we can be the change we wish to see in the world and help to preserve this incredible planet!

Find yourself... In the middle of nowhere...

Find yourself... in the middle of nowhere... Find yourself... in the middle of nowhere...

Our need to slow down and become more present in our day-to-day lives is more necessary than ever. This is why wellness travel is one of the fastest growing areas in the tourism industry.

Getting away can be essential to recharge and re-establish balance. While a simple vacation is a great way to relax, a study published in a 2016 article for Transitional Psychiatry found that people who participated in a six-day meditation retreat had fewer bouts of depression and stress-related symptoms. More specifically, yoga retreats are known to improve sleep, quality of life, cardiovascular fitness, anxiety, chronic pain relief, and strengthen the nervous system

Read on to learn about the benefits of wellness travel.

Nature allows you to unwind. Imagine basking in the warm sun, breathing in the clean air, and listening to the quiet breezes. You instantly enrich and reset the senses. Taking the time to be present in nature has shown to reduce the production of cortisol, which is our primary stress hormone.

Disconnect from technology: Unplugging may improve quality of sleep as well as your mood! putting down devices and outside distractors allows you to be fully present. Not many people know this (except our previous guests of course) so it is worth mentioning that one of the unique things about St. George's is that you can truly unplug during your stay. Wi-fi is available in the lounge area so you can check in with loved ones, but the rest of the resort is completely unplugged from the internet and TV. Guests love this quality!

Decompress and release stress: Taking a break from the daily hustle and bustle of life is essential for your mind to recharge. A 2013 study noted that more than 80% of Americans who were surveyed noticed significant drops in stress just after a day or two of traveling.

Spending time with like-minded people: Being surrounded by like-minded people who have similar goals and interests can provide you with encouragement and motivation.

Taking time for yourself: Wellness travel takes you out of your usual routine and mindset and really lets you focus on YOU. Give yourself the freedom to relax, unwind, and recharge. It may inspire you to take time out for yourself far more often than you already do!

Sounds good to us! Even on island time, we all individually take time to pause and take in this pristine land and seascape around us. We hope you join us to do the same!

Your UnBelizeable Fish Story - But It's True!

Catch of the Day! Trophy fishing

Belize has some of the best game fishing in the world. As part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef – the largest in the Western Hemisphere – the Belize Barrier Reef offers unmatched fishing opportunities. Some anglers tell us it is virtually impossible to go fishing in Belize and not catch something! No guarantees of course but those are pretty good odds to hope for.

An additional factor to consider when planning a successful trip, aside from the health of our local reefs and ecosystems, is to seek out the best local insider information about the best spots. Your guide will know the most populated areas and will work to take you to locations known to host the very fish that you seek, hopefully in huge abundance.

Read more about fishing with St. George's Caye Resort's Professional Valet Guides

          

Great weather, a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of action are all part of the Belize fishing experience. Some of the favorite sport fish in Belize are snook, tarpon, jack, barracuda, bonefish, snapper, permit, plus many more!

The local Belize info resource site has up to date information on seasons, population updates and also suggestions on timing for the perfect trip. They write in their fishing info article, "May, June, July, August and early September are considered to be the best fishing months here primarily because there are good numbers of the "Big Three" of Tarpon, Bonefish, and Permit available. Summer temperatures are in the low-to-mid-90s and a steady trade wind generally makes the weather very comfortable."

 A fun addition to your experience is Lionfish dive hunting. This invasive species has no natural predators and therefore hunting them is necessary to manage their population. Despite their eccentric exterior, they also happen to be a delicious treat. When filleted correctly to eliminate their poison, they are described as "white, flaky, mild, tender, and delicious". When our guests catch their game fish, we are happy to prepare them. Many guests will indulge in their catch of the day with just their group, or better yet, share with the whole resort group.
