Adventure vacations in Belize are popular. An important step in planning a getaway of discovery is choosing the perfect Belize adventure resort. This country offers tons of exciting activities, rustic Mayan Ruins, and World Heritage Sites. Not to mention the infamous diving spots.
But, which accommodation best offers a great location to take advantage of the incredible activities in Belize, and still leaves you with a place to relax at night? Which resort gives you a truly Belizean escape that includes cultural touches and setting? Where can you find a unique stay with stunning beach surroundings? Our answer is simple: Green Parrot Beach House & Resort.
First, let's discuss the exciting accommodations, which go hand-in-hand with the adventure theme of your trip. You get to stay in a beach house or cabana, not a hotel room. Your own private oasis is set right on the beach, so you can literally wake up and be in the ocean in 30 seconds. Everything you will need the beach house has; kitchenette with utensils, beds, private bathroom, and sitting area. The two thatched roof cabanas are very tropical with an outdoor (enclosed) shower.
Just imagine yourself at the day's end with your drink in hand gently swaying in the hammock on your cabana's private deck.
The all wood cabanas are rustic, with touches of Caribbean color. These fun cabana's not only boost your vacation experience but your adventurous mood.
There are only 6 beach houses and 2 thatched roof cabanas in total, so reserving ahead is recommended (but not always required if you're doing a last minute trip, depending on the season).
Any adventure trip requires a superb location. In deciding on our top recommended resort for adventure vacations in Belize, we did take into account that transportation is a prerequisite for this type of getaway. The majority of locals use bus transit to get around the country, but as a visitor we recommend renting a car or using domestic air. (Unless flagging down buses on the side of the road is something you are comfortable with!)
Green Parrot is seven miles North of Placencia, and sits directly on a quiet stretch of white sandy beach. You can relax on the beach and still be close to tours and activities, but far enough away to allow both discovery and relaxation. Tours are arranged from the front desk, so if you haven't planned all of your excursions (or don't want to rent a car) you can easily arrange activities with transport at Green Parrot.
What lays in wait for day trips around Placencia? Everything from Mayan Ruins to Sailing Excursions, Cave Tubing to Sightseeing, Historic Landmarks to Scuba Diving. The area is primed for self-starters who want to cruise the open roads, hike in the rainforest, visit ruins, find hidden beaches ... whatever an adventure vacation means to you discovery beckons in and around Plancencia.
For those who want to explore the immediate area, the Green Parrot offers complementary kayaks, canoes, bicycles and snorkeling off from their beach.
There is a bar onsite that locals frequent, which is not just fun and entertaining, but it means you don't have to go anywhere to mingle and make new friends. It is also the opportune place to try out Belize's local beer: Belikin, or one of their daily special tropical drinks.
You will also find live local music at this authentic Belizean bar.
This small resort proves bigger is not always better, especially for an adventure vacationer. Since you may not plan on spending all your time on the property, individual service is really important. During your stay you get to know the staff, and they get to know you. When you have a question about directions, suggestions, or service, they will always take the time to share their exceptional insider knowledge.
The staff are mentioned time and again in every review you will read about Green Parrot. They go above and beyond to ensure each traveler has a great time at their resort and in their country. This team's love of Belize and care of their guests is demonstrated by these reviews, time and again.
Being an adventure vacationer doesn't mean that you want to be off-grid. This is another aspect we looked at in choosing our recommendation for the best accommodation for adventure travelers heading to Belize. Green Parrot is off the beaten path, true. But, it still offers WIFI, has the Parrot's Perch bar for entertainment, a souvenir shop for memento's (also a supply back-up should you have forgot anything at home), and an internet cafe. Plus, daily housekeeping is included also.
I think everyone would agree that trying authentic Belizean cuisine is a must. This is another reason Green Parrot reigns as our top accommodation choice for adventure trips in Belize. The open air or patio dining restaurant at Green Parrot /Beach Houses & Resort meets this demand with their delicious Belizean menu. They will even prepare your own fresh catch if you want.
An added bonus, if you find yourself up early, coffee is usually on by 6:00 am, which is free for guests.
Those traveling to Belize with the goal of organizing an adventure trip, where they get off the property and learn about the culture, meet locals, visit historic sites, and truly experience the country need look no further than Green Parrot Beach Houses Resort. From the unique beach houses and cabanas to their authentic Belizean menu, the superb location to friendly service, this top rated resort in Belize pairs perfectly for those in search of an adventure vacation.
