Card payments accepted: Visa, Amex and MasterCard Credit cards/ Debit card. Kindly note: Discover is currently not being accepted.

Alternately, Agents can decide to pay us the rack rate for the booking. We will keep the net rate and remit the difference back to the agent about one month after guests check out.

Getting To Know Belize

Once known as “Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret” Belize is now an alluring travel destination for people from all walks of life. With glistening sandy beaches, untouched rain forests, and a rich cultural history dating all the way back to the ancient Maya, it’s a country that offers something for everyone. Belize is home to a wealth of natural wonders offering unrivaled diving, untouched coral patches, dense jungle, and an underground Mayan world rich with history. From its pristine tropical rainforest to the largest barrier reef in the world, Belize is every traveler’s dream come true.

Based on Manta’s location, we don’t have the inland tours included. However, we have a full range of other marine tours that you can experience which would keep you on an adventurous path.

The Journey

In more recent years, getting to Belize from North America has gotten much faster with direct, nonstop flights from major cities. As the only English-speaking nation in Central America, bordered and strongly influenced by the shores of the Caribbean, Belize is at the epicenter of every wanderlust traveler’s dreams.

In the United States, American Airlines, Delta, Southwest, Sun Country Airlines, United Airlines, and others all now operate flights to Belize (code: BZE) from nearly a dozen major cities, including Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Charlotte, Denver, Minneapolis, and Miami. There are also flights from Toronto, Cancun, Merida, Roatan, Panama City, San Pedro Sula, San Salvador. Currently, all international flights to Belize land at the Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport (BZE). Kindly note, our rates do not include international travel.

The Weather

Unlike most other parts of the world, Belize only has two seasons – wet and dry. Our “dry” season is our peak season for visitors who come looking to escape a bleak and dreary Northern winter. The dry season begins in late November (around Thanksgiving) and ends in May. Within our dry season, however, there are three months that are especially the warmest and driest of them all: March, April, and May. That means these months are prime months for all aquatic activities like kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, diving, snorkeling, fishing and so much more!

The Locals

What makes Belize unique is quite simple: its people. As a small nation with a little over 400,000 residents, Belize is a melting pot of various cultures. With its British colonial ties, Carib settlers, Central American neighbors, and more recent immigrants from around the world, you will surely meet friendly locals with interesting stories. Although most cultures have their own native tongue, English is the official language of Belize, making it easy for tourists to navigate and form a connection with the locals.

“The best word to sum up my stay at Manta is AMAZING! Honestly, I was in awe from the moment I spotted the island and then when I stepped foot on the island, I was amazed!”
