Belize Private Island Vacation Package
Need to really, really get away? Coral Caye, a private island about 8 miles east of Placencia, Belize, and part of the Coppola resorts, might be your answer.
Coral Caye still looks much as the cayes around Placencia looked before development came to southern Belize - quiet, natural beach, mangroves and a beautiful coral reef for snorkeling right from the beach.
And that's precisely its charm - far from the madding crowd and simple natural pleasures - plus the privacy - because when you reserve Coral Caye for your Belize vacation, you're reserving it just for you (and your very discrete caretaker/guide and chef).
Lodging is in either Coral Cottage (a simple wooden cabana set into the mangroves, with wonderful night-time sea breezes, king bed, sleeper sofa, private bath (shower, no bathtub), verandah and hammocks, or the larger Seahorse cottage with two queen beds, two twin beds, private bath (shower no bathtub) and private verandah.
Meals are freshly prepared, most featuring just-caught seafood -- fish and/or lobster and conch (in season), continental breakfasts and simple lunches of sandwiches, salads, rice, beans, salad, and chicken.
Snorkeling gear, canoes, fishing gear, hammocks, day beds, music, drums, and board games are included, and guests can snorkel, canoe and swim to their heart's content - guided or unguided. (Fly fishing anglers should bring their own gear because permit frequent the waters around the entire caye.)
Coral Caye is an island of simple and authentic luxuries - perfect for a true island get-away.
Rate for this Belize island vacation for two adults, double occupancy starts at US$2,400 per night, including meals (continental breakfasts, lunches and dinners), round-trip boat transfers between Placencia and the caye, snorkeling gear, canoes, fishing gear, and hotel and sales tax. Rate does not include international or domestic transfers to or from Placencia, alcoholic beverages, snacks, sodas, gratuities, personal items or incidentals, souvenirs or trip cancellation insurance.
