Start with three days in Miami Beach, where you can marvel at the Art Deco architecture, never-ending beaches and exuberant excess of Floridian life. There's one colourful building after another, plus galleries, museums and independent boutiques. After the whirlwind of Florida comes the peace and simplicity of Belize. Spend a week exploring the idyllic coastline, abundant coral reefs and the Blue Hole, a vast limestone sinkhole in the Caribbean Sea. Belize's natural splendour is crying out to be explored, especially beneath the waves, so expect an action-packed few days.

This trip wouldn't be complete without beautiful accommodation that reflects the spirit of each destination. The hotel in Miami is close to the beach and in true South Beach style, the building is Art Deco and has a rooftop bathed in sunshine.
The following days in Belize are a wonderful mix of sophistication and laid-back lounging. First, explore Miami Beach by bicycle stopping for ice cream along the way, and then dive into the crystal clear waters that line the islands of Laughing Bird Caye, for a snorkelling adventure. If, along the way, you have a last-minute request or a slight setback, contact our local Concierge who is on hand for support and advice.


Everything is 100% tailored to you


Board your ten-hour flight from London to Miami, where you’ll be welcomed upon arrival and privately transferred to your hotel in Miami Beach. Spend three nights staying near South Beach in an elegant hotel with an arty style and pastel colour palette, complete with a few vintage touches. There's a small, rooftop swimming pool and, for those who prefer the beach, the hotel is within easy walking and cycling distance of the promenade (bikes are even on hand at the door). As an added bonus, young, local artists are supported here and some of their pieces are on display (and for sale) in the rooms.

DAYS 2 & 3


Explore Miami Beach at your own pace with a day’s bike hire, which includes the loan of a helmet, bike lock and handy city map. Art Deco was incorporated into most of the reconstructions after a hurricane devastated Miami Beach in 1926, so it’s worth spending some time admiring these beautiful buildings. For example, the Bass Museum of Art hides a collection of contemporary works behind its pretty facade. There are no cars on Lincoln Road, so pedestrians are free to go shopping, enjoy cafe terraces and visit galleries. And then there's the beach, which is constantly under the watchful eye of the lifeguards from the famous lifeguard towers.

The following day, head out on a boat tour of Everglades National Park. Sprawled across the tip of the Florida peninsula, Everglades is one of the few America Parks which is also lucky enough to have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With an extraordinary array of aquatic habitats, the park is home to myriad birds and reptiles, as well as some endangered species. The two-hour boat trip is led by an expert guide, who will help you spot birds and dolphins along the way.



Following a private transfer to the airport, you’ll take a two-and-a-half-hour flight from Miami to Belize City. Upon arrival you’ll be privately transferred to your hotel in San Ignacio.

Spend three nights staying in the middle of a jungle, waking each morning in your river view cabin to the wild surroundings. With simple yet comfortable décor, your lodge comes complete with hammocks on the terrace, where you can enjoy your morning coffee and spend afternoons napping. Located beside the Macal River, there are plenty of activities that can be organised during your stay, including bird watching, river boat rides and ziplining. The cuisine here centres around local produce and you’ll be served dishes which feature homemade bread and goat’s cheese, as well as avocados, fresh tropical fruits, and coffee from neighbouring Guatemala.

DAYS 5 & 6


During your stay in San Ignacio, discover the beautiful Actun Tunichil Muknal cave alongside an expert guide, which is only accessible by swimming. Uncovered in 1989 and opened to the public in 1998, the three-mile deep cave is filled with an array of stalactites and stalagmites, which make for fascinating surroundings as you swim through the cavernous space. The tour also includes a visit to the well-preserved skeletal remains of the Crystal Maiden (who acts as the guardian of the cave) and a picnic lunch.

While here, you can also admire the rainforest from 490 feet above the treeline while flying through the foliage on a zipline near the Caves Branch River.



Today you will be privately transferred from your hotel in San Ignacio to Hopkins, where you’ll spend the remainder of your trip enjoying Belize’s coastline and coral reef.

Spend four nights staying in a laid-back beachfront retreat, which is the epitome of a tropical paradise, with its white-sand beaches and turquoise waters. Some of the rooms even come complete with their own plunge pool and ocean views. Enjoy local and international dishes at the hotel restaurant, where you’ll find a menu full of seasonal ingredients and local flavours. The onsite spa is an oasis of calm and relaxation, offering luxurious treatments which will leave you feeling revitalised and ready to explore Belize’s underwater world.

DAYS 8 to 10


Belize's coral reef is carefully cared for, keeping it in a remarkable state of conservation. The health of corals is a key indicator of the health of the entire ecosystem. From single-cell algae to large hammerhead sharks and numerous turtles, there's so much marine life to be discovered here. Underwater adventures are the main thing to do in this area, however, Hopkins is also great to use as a base for exploring inland, including the Cockscomb Jaguar Reserve basin (home to around 50 jaguars), the mangroves (where you can spot endangered manatees) and Placencia (known for its palm-lined beaches). At sunset, visit one of the many bars in the village, sit back and relax with your feet in the sand and the rhythm of reggae in your ears.

Spend a day snorkelling or diving in Laughing Bird Caye, which has been a national park since 1991 and is named after the laughing gulls which used to live here. Today the reserve is home to myriad other bird species, including brown pelicans, green heron, lizards and turtles. The dinky island forms part of Belize’s Barrier Reef Reserve System, which has been a designated World Heritage Site since 1996. As well as breath-taking day dives, nights dives with a guide can also be included in your itinerary, during which you’ll have the chance to spot mysterious Toad Fish and Lemon Sharks.

DAYS 11 & 12


Today a private transfer will take you from Hopkins to Belize City Airport. From Belize you’ll fly to Miami, before catching your overnight flight back from Miami to London, arriving home the next day.

A la carte


Take a cruise around the incredibly chic Biscayne Bay, south of Miami, with yachts, sailboats and jet skis. During the tour you'll travel about 23 miles to see Venetian Islands, Flagler Monument, Fisher Island and Star Island celebrity homes. The upper deck of the Zodiac offers a great view of the Miami Bay and skyline.



learn from a local in Miami, exploring Wynwood, formerly Little San Juan. Puerto Ricans first settled here in the 1950s, and now galleries and craft beers compete with 'arroz con gandules y lechon' - the signature rice dish of Puerto Rican cuisine. Street artists, occupying vacant spaces, launched the movement in the early 2000s, and it then grew with the creation of Wynwood Walls in 2009. Wynwood Art District was born and it has become the trendy neighbourhood of the city. A whole other life has developed around the frescoes, with its day and night places, workshops and rituals.



This cenote (collapsed sinkhole) off San Pedro is 900ft in diameter and 400ft deep and flooded by the sea. Dive pioneer Jacques Cousteau famously declared this one of the top ten diving spots on Earth. Incredibly rich fauna and impressive stalactites and stalagmites make this exceptional underwater experience fascinating. Instructors assist divers and equipment is provided on site.



Every year, from April to June, this reserve south of the reef becomes a refuge for a colony of whale sharks, which feeds on snapper eggs. It's the perfect, unique diving experience for intrepid adventurers. And, it's quite common in this protected area to meet a few dolphins or manta rays for good measure. Equipment is provided on site and lunch is included, with your toes in the sand.
