Absolute blog: May 2012

31 May 12

When I travel, I am always the one to create the agendas, read reviews, book hotels and excursions, etc. It is one of my least favorite parts of vacationing as the choices are always a gamble. When I travel I am always basing my choices on the experiences of those that may not have the same preferences, interests or opinions as I do. When we traveled to Belize this month, we used Absolute Belize- a company specializing in creating unique travel experiences for those traveling in Belize. Using this service, to us was a no-brainer. Not only did it take all of the guessing out of planning the trip, but it reduced the un-needed stress that we would have faced otherwise.

Rachael, one of the co-owners of Absolute Belize, created an unbelievable vacation for us based on our interests and preferences. From the beautiful hotels, exciting excursions, guides and restaurants we were overly ecstatic with the people, quality and overall experience of everything she coordinated for us. We highly recommend letting her set up a “Catch and Cook” on Tranquility Bay – where you’ll go fishing for lobster (in season), red snapper, grouper, etc. with local guides and they’ll cook it for you right there on the beach (you won’t even have to bait your own hook which was a big plus for me!). Also, they organized manatee watching excursions, a sailing trip, and transportation to Caye Caulker (our favorite island) and the remote surrounding islands. We also had the option to explore the inland jungle and Mayan ruins.

Rachael and Sophie (the other co-owner) also knew which hotels, resorts and condos to book for us. They had the local expertise to really land us the best accommodations (and at a great price). Since they know so many people on the island, they are able to set up the best services that Belize offers.

Long story short- the advisors at Absolute Belize know it all – the island, the people, the best things to do, the best places to stay. They really get to know what each traveler is looking for in their vacation and create a unique itinerary specifically to meet their needs. We put all of our trust into Absolute Belize and we couldn’t have been any happier. WELL WORTH IT!!

Azul Resort and Rojo lounge, Ambergris Caye, Belize

From the lush jungle terrain of the Cayo District to postcard perfect private islands, there are some very special places in Belize to enjoy that perfect sundowner , but we think that the prize goes to Azul Resort and Rojo Lounge on the exclusive north beach area of Ambergris Caye. With a legendary drink list (the key lime pie martini is to die for), delectable tropical lounge cuisine, fun and friendly staff and 400 feet of perfect white beachfront, the is the ultimate slice of paradise.
