One of a Kind on Ambergris Caye
Posted by: Las Terrazas Resort
Are you looking for an authentic travel destination, one that truly stands out and is one of a kind? Then look no farther than Las Terrazas Resort
in Ambergris Caye, Belize. Though it is only two and a half hours from the U.S. (with direct flights from several major cities), both this all-inclusive luxury resort and the tropical island it rests on are unlike any other.
Las Terrazas Resort and Residences offers a dream-like world of its own! The multitude of ways that they stand out in comparison to other luxury hotels is outstanding. Whereas most hotels offer small rooms, Las Terrazas Resort's property boasts of spacious, oversized townhomes that can accommodate large family or friend groups. The Ambergris Caye beach front property is private, peaceful, and serene unlike many other island beaches that are filled with too loud music and too many people. And, while many island resorts offer excellent accommodations, such as car rentals or public transportation to and from their properties, Las Terrazas Resort offers something much better— air, land, and water transfers to get you to and from the resort with efficiency and ease! Going above and beyond, this luxury island hotel completes your travel needs with on-site golf cart rental, allowing you to putz around town without congesting the roads with traffic.
The island of Ambergris Caye has much to boast of as well. Though it really cannot be compared to any other, imagine the Maldives in both archipelagic and scenic terms. The island is beautiful both to fly over and explore and offers intimate experiences that will last a lifetime. Void of big, industrialized cities, Belize instead offers quaint oceanfront towns that boast of color, cheer, and charm. Not one to join the consumer bandwagon, you won't find a Starbucks in your hotel lobby. Instead, Ambergris Caye charms residents and tourists alike with their quaint mom and pop businesses, including, but not limited to, a coffeehouse of its very own known as Marbucks
! And while the little island town may not offer a giant waterpark or Grand Canyon-esque scenery, it does have its own fun and beauty to behold, including the wide open Caribbean Sea (complete with many ocean excursions
!), deep canyon reefs, and Mayan Ruins
As if this is not enough, it is truly the people and the culture that make Ambergris Caye one of a kind. A cultural melting pot that is equal parts Indian, Creole, Lebanese, Mayan, Mestizo, Spanish, Chinese, British and Mennonite, the people are known for their love and acceptance, free of the typical racial, religious, socioeconomic, and political division and hostility that most places often experience. You will quickly learn that Belizeans are amongst the friendliest people you will encounter in any of your travels. They are extremely warm and hospitable. In fact, many Las Terrazas Resort guests become "friends" via Social Media with the staff, celebrating in their milestones such as weddings, births, promotions, and birthdays from home.
Belize is known for its laid back, care free lifestyle; they truly clip along at their own pace, and its lifestyle is one that draws people in for good. Be warned that many who come to visit decide to never leave. Yet, despite its proximity to the States and its influx of American expats, this quaint island has somehow remained true to itself and is uninfluenced by America's standards when it comes to stress, busyness, and consumerism. It is truly off the grid, and though it is not Americanized, it still boasts of luxury and bliss.
It is because of these reasons and so many more than Ambergris Caye and Las Terrazas Resort are sure to be an unBELIZEable travel destination!
