Jungle and Island Luxury
Belize has done a phenomenal job of managing the pandemic, and very few cases currently exist in the country. Remote ecolodges can provide secluded nature escapes far from the crowds elsewhere. If you’d like to blend your remote jungle experience with gorgeous Caribbean waters, we have a couple of great options that will provide a fantastic private island getaway.

Within a couple of hours you can be in Mexico enjoying a reprieve from the confines of your home. Spend a week or even a month relaxing at your private home in Cabo taking snorkeling day trips, volunteering with a whale shark conservation project, or kayaking. In Baja you’ll have the opportunity to do a bit of everything from relaxing to adventuring and each day can be concluded with a fabulous fresh, Baja-style taco if you so choose.

You can mix it up with some great outdoor activities including surfing, horseback riding, rafting, snorkeling, hiking, climbing volcanoes, swimming in waterfalls, biking, kayaking, and paddle boarding.
