April 23, 2015
Belize, the unique country situated on the Caribbean coast of northern Central America, is known for its lush tropical rainforests, unspoiled lush mountains, glorious white sand beaches and a spectacular 174 mile-long barrier reef, the world’s second-largest barrier reef. And that’s not to mention the country’s rich cultural treasures and the wonder of the Mayan ruins.
For years Belize, the only English-speaking country in Central America, has been a favorite destination of adventure travelers but in the past few years the country has also been increasingly recognized as a top destination for relaxation, romance travel and sheer enjoyment of the many wonders the country has to offer.
Indeed, there is a world of exotic adventure and beauty to explore in Belize. Whether you want to switch off and rejuvenate in a lush rainforest location or to explore the diverse underwater landscape at the breathtaking barrier reef, you can discover the country’s delights at Matachica Resort and Spa, or sister property, eco-friendly GAÏA Riverlodge.
Matachica Resort and Spa is a truly special island destination. Perfectly located facing the worlds second-largest barrier reef, Matachica Resort & Spa offers all the elements to make it the ideal escape for romance, indulgence or adventure.
