The Island Life - Belize

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.

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.

 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!
