My Family Trip to Belize: From the Perspective of a Travel Agent
Posted by: Las Terrazas Resort
Summer is upon us and it's not too late to book your Belize vacation! Ambergris Caye is the perfect beach vacation destination for family members of all ages
, offering a multitude of ways to enjoy fun in the sun in uniquely stunning and awe-inspiring ways. From educational experiences
that are rich in history and culture, adventures
that take you far above treetop canopies and deep down beneath caves, to soaking up the wind and the waves by way of jet skis, kayaks, parasailing, and sunset cruises, one thing is certain: the island of Ambergris Caye does not disappoint and will leave families
ready to come back again.
As evidence of such, we recently interviewed Kris Nelson, who recently traveled to Ambergris Caye for spring break. Her family experience is just one of hundreds that will convince you that the island is the most unBELIZEable place to vacation this summer. As a travel agent with Strong Travel Services
, Kris had been to Ambergris Caye once before with a group of travel agents, and although she did spend time in the lush jungles, her time simply was not her own and she did not get to see or do all that she would have liked. However, her time here was enough to make her know that she would one day come back. She was drawn to the amazing light blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, fell in love with the authentic community
that is evidenced on the island, and delighted in the fact that golf carts are the main mode of transportation around town. All these things and more made her return to Ambergris Caye a simple choice, and she could not wait to return to Belize for her family's spring break trip.
Not only did Kris bring her own family to Ambergris Caye, and naturally, Las Terrazas Resort, but they invited friends to travel with them, making this an experience that they could share and enjoy together. Between both families, there were two teenage boys; a great age in that they were old enough to drive the golf carts (valid driver's licenses are required to drive), were able to experience nearly all that the island had to offer, and could have explored San Pedro on their own if they had wanted. And though the island was perfectly suitable for these near-adults, don't be discouraged if you have younger children in your family; the resort alone has much to offer
for children of all ages, and even more so the island at large!
As far as Kris' family and friends, they opted for an excursion to the mainland where they rode through the jungle on ATVs, hiked to a cave, and went cave tubing through ancient, underground rivers… all of which were a huge hit for every member of their trip! The Truck Stop
, Belize' first ever shipping container food park and beer garden, were also a favorite shared experience. The Truck Stop's proximity to Las Terrazas Resort, the variety of food, and the jovial ambiance complete with great music and activities like watching an outdoor poolside movie, singing karaoke, or playing ping pong and corn-hole, made this a fantastic spot for these two families to hang out.
Staying at Las Terrazas Resort was a no-brainer for Kris and her family. As the most luxurious property on the island, and the only Virtuoso
property as well, Las Terrazas Resort was an easy pick based on luxury and elegance. The family enjoyed fryjacks for breakfast each morning and raved about all of the fine dining
offered at the resort. Yet despite Las Terrazas Resort's luxury and glam, Kris did mention that it would be helpful for families to know that Ambergris Caye is not
a place to expect luxury at every turn. While there are certainly pockets of luxury, the island is overall known for being a relaxed and casual destination where the locals are very proud. They welcome you to try their food, crafts and customs… and you should! Kris suggests knowing where the island's hidden gems are, like the Secret (not so secret anymore!) Beach
and Elvi's Kitchen
With all of the traveling that Kris has experienced in her career as a travel agent, it is an honor to know that she chose Ambergris Caye and Las Terrazas Resort as her family's spring break destination this year. And while it might seem easy to just book a trip yourself in today's digital age, using a travel agent is still such a valuable resource— especially when using one who raves over this particular island and resort herself!
