Resort at a Glance: Fantasy Island Eco-Resort
Fantasy Island Eco-Resort sits on a remote Caribbean island just big enough for a small cluster of overwater cabanas and swaying palms. After days of sunbathing on a white-sand beach or exploring the jungle, you can sip cocktails on the deck of your private cabana, which offers unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea and the Maya Mountains.
- Discover Belizean cuisine: The onsite eatery cooks up tropical dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Local staples include johnny cakes (coconut-flavored biscuits) and panades (pastries similar to empanadas).
- Watersports galore: Go kayaking, kite surfing, or paddleboarding in the shallow waters (rental fees not included).
- Explore deep seas: Learn to scuba dive, get certified, or dive the open waters with the resort's scuba program.
- Side trip: Man-O-War Caye, a protected bird sanctuary, is a short boat ride away.
- Solar power: All the electricity used at the resort comes from solar energy.
With select deal options, guests can receive a daily meal package, which features breakfast, lunch, and dinner, explore the sea with an adventure scuba diving package, or choose a combination of both.
Coco Plum Range, Belize: Remote Tropical Islands and Coral Reef Diving
A few miles off Belize's sandy shores is a trio of small islands known as the Coco Plum Range. Its generous swathes of beaches and palm trees naturally attract visitors seeking a peaceful Caribbean getaway. Guests can explore the world's second-largest reef system, the Belize Barrier Reef, on scuba-diving and snorkeling excursions that reveal up-close views of a remarkable variety of sea life. The reef is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site home to coral atolls, mangrove forests, and nearly 500 species of fish, including sea turtles and rare West Indian manatees that can reach the size of a compact car.
Visitors can also take a short boat ride to Belize's mainland, where Hopkins Village residents celebrate their Garifuna heritage—a mix of West African, Carib, and Arawak—with traditional music, dance, and drum performances. Also nearby is Dangriga, another vibrant Garifuna town whose Afro-Caribbean culture reveals itself in a handful of art galleries and restaurants.
