We spent two weeks relaxing in Villa Opal, La Perla del Caribe, Belize. At + 28C it is a long way from the -28C we left behind! La Perla is its own little neighborhood. Twelve private homes along the beach roughly 5 miles from San Pedro. A quick 20 minute ride on the Coastal Express and you are in the heart of town. Four restaurants within walking distance. A cool little grocery store about 15 min walk down the beach. Kayaks at our disposal; a beautiful swimming pool in which to escape the heat; fishing off the dock; a poolside barbecue to fry up our catch; fully equipped kitchen etc. Our family of 5 had a wonderful, relaxing time. We used the villas bicycles and rode to Ak'Bol for a little yoga on the dock. Another day we had a yoga teacher come to our spacious deck for a private yoga class followed by massages. We all enjoyed a snorkeling trip to Shark Ray Alley and then lunch on a neighboring island called Caye Caulker. The trip to Altun Ha and Marauba Jungle Spa is definitely worth the adventure. Belize is everything we read about on Trip Advisor and we understand now why Ambergris Caye was voted as the number 1 island in 2013.
