About the Destination

Charter highlights include Cocoa Plum Cay, Wippari Cay, Lark Cay, South Water Cay, Lagoon Cay, and Hatchet Cay.
The locals speak English and a local dialect called Belizean Creole. The nation’s multi-cultural influences are everywhere, including the Mexican/Jamaican fusion cuisine and punta afro-Caribbean music. The country’s 300km-long Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System is UNESCO World Heritage protected and a renowned snorkeling and scuba destination.
