Belize is a nation on the eastern coast of Central America, with Caribbean Sea shorelines to the east and dense jungle to the west. Offshore, the massive Belize Barrier Reef, dotted with hundreds of low-lying islands called cayes, hosts rich marine life. Belize’s jungle areas are home to Mayan ruins like Caracol, renowned for its towering pyramid; lagoon-side Lamanai; and Altun Ha, just outside Belize City.

If you’re ready to head south of the border, there’s no better place to begin your yacht charter vacation than Belize. Along the outskirts of the Caribbean, Belize provides the same idyllic turquoise blue waters, white sandy beaches, and tropical sunshine-island vibe vacationers are searching for. Charter guests will have an opportunity to explore vibrant, spirited life under the sea along Glover’s Reef, offering some of the best snorkeling and diving opportunities in Central America. On land, the wildlife adventure continues in the local rainforest, where you might come across monkeys, enjoy birdwatching, or even spot a jaguar. Whether your private yacht charter takes place on a power catamaran, sailing yacht, motor yacht, or another luxury yacht in our fleet, our team will ensure you make the most of your time on-land and on the waters surrounding Belize.
Although not an island itself, Belize has over 240 miles of Central American coastline from north to south along the Caribbean Sea. Likewise the country does have over 200 offshore islands and cayes, many of which are uninhabited. When planning your Belize yacht charter itinerary, you’ll want to include a few of the most popular cayes, such as Whipray Caye, South Water Caye, Cocoa Plum Caye, Lagoon Caye, Hatchet Caye, Lark Caye, and Placencia Harbour. An additional stop in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye provides a lively destination and a great place to begin exploring the barrier reef. Also consider escaping to Hopkins if you’re in search of a calm, “village vibe,” with small but inviting beaches, away from the bustling tourist area.
