Whether as a honeymoon or romantic getaway or as a holiday with family and friends, a chartered yacht in Belize offers something incredibly special. Lush vegetation, turquoise waters dotted with beautiful islands, idyllic beaches and wildlife all make for amazing sailing, sights, mornings, afternoons and evenings.

The Belize Barrier Reef is the second longest in the world and home to hundreds of different fish species and stunning corals and atolls, making it one of the most desirable locations for scuba diving and snorkeling in the region.
But while much of that submarine scenery is truly spectacular, navigating the barrier reef in a yacht can be demanding. However, the coastal passage that lies between Belize and the reef is tremendous for sailing with hundreds of uninhabited islands and cays populating the way, offering tranquil anchorages, swimming and fishing.
Meanwhile, with tropical rainforest hugging the coastline, there is no shortage of wonders to explore onshore. Jungle treks and kayaking offer breathtaking close-up views of the exotic flora and fauna with national parks and wildlife sanctuaries aplenty.
And if that weren’t enough, there are the ancient Mayan ruins to discover, with many of the archaeological sites – some of them stone temples offering spectacular vistas of the surrounding rainforest, some of them cave-deep excavated tombs, the former sites of religious ceremony and sacrifice – approaching 2000 years of age.
There are currently excellent offers to be found for yacht charters in Belize, with many deals offering discounts of 30%.
