The Destination
Combine the language and culture of Jamaica with the natural beauty of the Galapagos; add a dash of pre-Columbian history and a touch of all-to-yourself Nicaraguan solitude; combine it all with the impossibly fresh, local seafood of Peru, and you've got the wholly unique Caribbean country of Belize. Deep blue lagoons, lush green rain forests, and white sand beaches—it's a tropical paradise that's become an increasingly popular second-residence for celebrities and a haven for dive enthusiasts. 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.

The Digs
On the north of Ambergris Caye just a few miles from the town of San Pedro, the boutique Portofino Beach Resort is classic Belize: Authentic thatch-roofed palapas, dense clusters of palm trees, and verdant gardens. Laid out on more than four acres of prime Caribbean real estate, this resort features an open-air bar, a freshwater swimming pool, and the soothing sound of the sea lapping the shore that's just steps away. While the vibe is unmistakably rustic and centered on the natural environment, the accommodations are nothing if not plush. Each romantic beach cabana—appointed with tropical hardwood and bamboo furniture designed by the owners themselves—features beautiful hardwood floors, air conditioning, cable TV with a DVD player, and a king-size bed.

The Diversions
One of the island's most popular restaurants, the second-floor Portofino Restaurant offers stunning views of the sea, as well as European-inspired dishes crafted with local ingredients. For outdoor adventures, consult with the on-site dive shop about scuba and snorkeling trips, or ask about coordinating a caving or cave-tubing adventure through sacred Mayan caverns. The resort also offers zip-lining excursions through the jungle for a bird's-eye view of Belize. Cap it all off with a massage or spa treatment—which Portofino arranges exclusively for guests—thus making your Escape to beautiful Belize even more of a blissful retreat.
