Cayo District, Belize
Visitors to Central America have a lot to look forward to: lush landscapes, hiking and watersports, peaceful retreats, and sustainable practices. Our favorite hotels in the region combine all of the above, whether they be remote boutiques or action-packed megaresorts. Check them out in this slideshow: One of two resorts in Belize owned by movie director Francis Ford Coppola, Blancaneaux Lodge enjoys a splendidly lush location beside a creek in the country’s Mountain Pine Ridge. This fabulous hideaway features decent amenities (including horse stables), and wonderful wooden cabanas with thatched roofs and rustic luxe decor that includes colorful Guatemalan textiles.
