If you have been looking for the perfect place to go for a memorable family vacation, you need to look no further than Belize. This fabulous Central American nation truly offers something for everybody.

For instance, if relaxing under the sun and helping your kids build sandcastles sounds like a great way to spend the day, you can take a trip to one of Belize’s pristine beaches. There are lots to choose from, but Placencia, Hopkins, and San Pedro are always particularly popular with families.

When it’s time to cool off afterward, snorkeling in the region’s crystal clear waters is a fantastic option. The area is home to a wide variety of marine animals, including morays, nurse sharks, and dolphins – so your kids are bound to spot something that they have never seen before.

It perhaps goes without saying that, no trip to Belize would be complete without spending some time in its lush and beautiful rainforests. Many families choose to simply hike on one of the region’s many trails, but if you and your family are feeling particularly adventurous, you can opt to travel by horseback instead. No matter what your preferred mode of travel may be, you are sure to be blown away by the unique sights and sounds on offer all around you.

Of course, one of the best ways to see the Belizean rainforest is from above. If your family wants to see the trees and wildlife at their best, you can go zip lining through the foliage. The view from up there truly is magical.

If you would like to fit some culture into your family vacation, you and your kids can take a trip to a Maya ruin. There, you will be able to learn just about everything about how these ancient people lived and worshipped. There are hundreds of historic sites situated throughout Belize, and Xunantunich, Altun Ha, and Lamanai are among the best of them.

Of course, during your time in Belize, you will need a family-friendly place to stay. Luckily, Black Orchid Resort is the perfect option. It is located in Burrell Boom Village, around 15 minutes from the airport, and features an abundance of comfortable rooms, suites, and villas. On-site amenities include a swimming pool, a swimming pool, and a gourmet restaurant. To learn more about Black Orchid Resort or to make a booking, just visit www.BlackOrchidResort.com
