Destinations / Caribbean

Couples and families looking for a carefree Caribbean beach getaway without the usual annoying flight connections should think about Belize. With new direct flights, beach lovers can travel to the beautiful sands and barefoot resorts of Ambergris Caye from cities coast to coast.


You can depart Atlanta (ATL), Chicago (ORD), Dallas (DFW), Denver (DEN), Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), Portland (PDX), Seattle (SEA), New York (JFK) or Vancouver (YVR) and arrive in Belize in plenty of time for a swim, all without the hassles and delays of connecting flights. Once in Belize, a short boat ride takes you to the long sandy islands along the barrier reef that protects the Belize coast from storm damage.


The barrier reef also protects important wildlife, corals and mangrove forests that harbor a variety of aquatic animals. A vacation on Ambergris Caye is a chance to explore these habitats, snorkel and dive in the Belize Barrier Reef, go fishing, and even take excursions to visit a Mayan ruin.


The Petite Dive Escape, a five-night getaway package at Victoria House Resort & Spa on Ambergris Caye, includes luxury accommodations, daily full breakfast and two full days of diving with equipment rentals. Stay in an elegantly decorated room in the main house or in your own tropical Casita, an ocean-view villa with a private pool.


A complimentary bottle of prosecco and a welcome Belizean Colada cocktail get the adventure off to a good start.
