Let Out of the Blue Yacht Charters help you plan a beautiful vacation in Belize aboard a private luxury yacht. It is on the eastern coast of Central America, with Caribbean Sea shorelines to the east and dense jungle to the west. Offshore is the massive Belize Barrier Reef, dotted with hundreds of low-lying islands called Cayes. Belize’s jungle areas are home to Mayan ruins like Caracol, renowned for its towering pyramid. Belize is steeped in history with St George’s Caye which was the first capital of the British settlement in Belize. Coastal Belize is protected by a magnificent system of islands and barrier reefs which are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and is a fantastic sailing destination with some of the best Scuba diving and fishing in the world. The Belize barrier reef is the second-largest barrier reef in the world. Consisting of hundreds of Sand Cayes, Mangrove Forests, Coastal Lagoons and Estuaries. The Belize reef habitat supports 3 species of Grouper, Rays, Nurse Sharks, Sea Turtles and Dolphins and you can even see a bird called the Red- Footed Booby. Belize is considered to have one of the highest levels of marine Biodiversity. This reef is also home to The Great Blue Hole which is a world-class destination for recreational scuba divers attracted by the opportunity to dive in crystal-clear waters and see myriad species of marine life including tropical fish and spectacular coral formations.
The beauty of the barrier reef system and amazing weather are part of what makes this tropical destination so special for a yacht charter vacation.
