Vacation rentals in Belize can come in a number of forms. From Condo style, private apartments, small cottages, studios and guest houses on private beaches only to name a few. Common to all these types of accommodation however is that you are likely to save money on what you will find at a full price hotel and also enjoy more freedom and other benefits. Besides the value you will almost certainly enjoy more space and amenities as well.
The best time to visit Belize is in the dry season. Although you will enjoy the best value in the off season, the popular season is when most of the northern hemisphere coping with the coldest part of winter which drives prices up. This time also coincides with the dry season, which also helps to keep the waters clear although it is not unusual to get a cool northerly at this time. In contrast it can rain a lot from mid year to December especially during hurricane season.
Ambergris Caye sits off the coast of northern Belize and is the tourism hub for good reason. While only a few years ago the are was mostly reserved for keen diving and snorkeling enthusiasts, rapid development in recent years has meant you can enjoy a wide range of activities and holiday types. Their remains those dive, and tour agencies in the laid back down town area, but it now seems only a matter of time before the upscale hotels move in among the smaller family friendly, great value boutique hotels, vacation rentals, and condo offerings.
While the lack of development may bring some organisation to the rubble of happenings, one may lament the loss of the Caribbean houses that are already disappearing should increase. We are talking about an area of land not much bigger than a few fastball fields wide. Also the properties that now enjoy waterfront front, crystal clear water, beaches on the north side of the town also may not continue to enjoy this feature for long if the country can not stop the destruction of mangroves which is currently destroying the ecosystem.

The Cayo area shares a border with Guatemala and houses the best of the Mayan ruins in the country.
