As part of his Diamond Jubilee tour, Prince Harry visited Belize. It was his first time in Belize and by all accounts he fell in love with the place and the people (which is no surprise to us, some of our clients return again and again). Find out what he did and about the luxury lodge he stayed in and you too will be day dreaming about following in his footsteps and taking a holiday in Belize.
Prince Harry started off his tour in Belize City where he helped unveil the newly named “Queen Elizabeth II Boulevard,” and then was guest of honour at a traditional Garifuna street party, where he drank the local rum and danced the night away with everyone.
The next morning he climbed Xunantunich, the stunning Mayan temple ruin in the Cayo district where he enjoyed panoramic views of the Macal River Valley and Guatemala.
Prince Harry stayed in the Cayo district – famed for its incredible natural beauty – at The Lodge at Cha Creek. On arrival he commented “Wow, this place looks so relaxing!” and asked for a mojito. When he woke the next morning he had a full English breakfast and then an hour long massage in his suite.
To follow in his footsteps we can create a similar itinerary including the Cayo district and the spectacular Mayan ruins of Xunantunich.
