Deep blue lagoons, lush green rain forests, and buttery-sand beaches—it's a dreamlike scene you have to see to... Belize. A tropical paradise that's become an increasingly popular second residence for celebrities and a haven for dive enthusiasts, Belize is something of a lost world—thatched roofs and clapboard houses add a minimal and unobtrusive charm to the largely undisturbed shorelines, and the Mayan ruins that pepper the jungle speak to a long, rich, and mysterious history.
Whether your style is "kick up your sandals on the sands of a crystalline shore" or "romp beneath the lush canopy of Central American palm fronds," you can do it all with a stay at these two lodgings from Almond Beach Resorts. Set amid more than 100,000 acres of pristine wilderness in the Sibun National Forest Reserve, Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge is a nine-room lodge that offers airy rooms appointed with mahogany furnishings, along with local woods and canes. Regional crafts lend the space a decidedly Belizean feel. And, of course, all rooms are air conditioned and equipped with hot water.
Along the shore, Almond Beach Belize greets you with individually decorated guest rooms equipped with all the bare necessities plus a few extras, including Belizean hand-carved furniture and Central American artwork. Enjoy a refreshing shower in your spacious bathroom after a swim in one of two freshwater pools.
Almond Beach is a short boat ride away from the world's second-largest barrier reef. For an additional fee, you can hire the expert guides at Almond Beach for a five- to six-hour snorkeling tour, where you'll encounter as many as 250 species of tropical fish over 200 miles of reef. In the afternoon, you can head back to the resort for a lunch of fresh-caught seafood at the beachfront restaurant. Then, if your nails look like you've been walking on all fours, purchase a mani/pedi or a refreshing facial at Almond Beach's Butterflies Spa.
Enjoy miles of echoing caverns as you tube through the underground river at Footprint Cave, one of the lodge's most popular tours. Other tours range from the adrenaline-pumping Black Hole Drop to the serene early-morning tropical bird-watching expeditions. You can also try fascinating excursions to Mayan ruins, zip-line adventures, and river kayaking tours.
