Vacation at Belize’s Beaches, Jungles, or Both
With this getaway, you can spend 4 or 6 nights at Almond Beach Resort & Spa, a beachfront Belizean resort along the Caribbean Sea. Or, you can choose to split 7 nights between Almond Beach Resort & Spa and a sister resort, Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge. With the 7-night option, you’ll spend your first 4 nights in an ocean-view room at Almond Beach Resort & Spa and then take an included transfer to Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge for 3 nights in a spanish casita located in the jungle.
Almond Beach Resort & Spa
Almond Beach Resort & Spa hugs 700 feet of unspoiled beachfront along the eastern coast of Belize, where lounge chairs, hammocks, and casitas dot the soft white sands. You can borrow a kayak from the resort and paddle out into Commerce Bight’s calm waters—the Belize Barrier Reef protects them from heavy surf. Beachfront and ocean-view rooms are just 60–120 feet from the Caribbean, and they have private patios with partial or full ocean views. Both feature regional artwork and hand-carved furniture made from local mahogany, cabbage bark, or barba jalote.
Dine on fresh seafood, local produce, and other Belizean specialties at the open-air Jaguar Reef restaurant, or head to one of the resort’s beach barbecues. In the morning, stop by Butterflies Coffee Shop, which serves java from all over Central America. To see more of the area, you can book a tour of Mayan ruins or a snorkeling trip to the Belize Barrier Reef.
Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge
Located in the Sibun Forest Reserve, Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge is enveloped by more than 100,000 acres of lush Belizean jungle. The lodge is in a prime spot to admire the scenery—you can do so from its open-air porches or on a hiking trail leading to vistas overlooking the Sibun River Valley Gorge. And since Sleeping Giant has only 13 guest rooms and casitas, you’ll enjoy a tranquil stay.
Many of the materials used to build the lodge were taken directly from the property, including mahogany timber, local grasses used to weave furniture, and air-conditioning units plucked right from the trees. You can also dine locally: the open-air restaurant serves housemade Belizean dishes.
A short walk away, the Sibun River is an excellent spot for a swim, or to float in an inflatable kayak or inner tube borrowed from the lodge. You can also explore the surrounding jungle on guided tours, which include early-morning bird watching and an evening hike through the jungle.
