Your host Stephen, would love to help you with any destinations you would like to visit while staying in Belize. There are many wonderful places to see around and near Orchid Bay such as Cerros ruins, Lamanai ruins, the fishing village of Sarteneja, the nearby Wildtracks Conservation and Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, or simply visiting the local towns of Corozal and Orange Walk. In addtion it is also possible to visit Ambergris Caye by water taxi or plane for a day trip to scuba, snorkelling, or just sailing along the reef.
Swim in our infinity edge pool that looks over the beach and bay. Enjoy beach volleyball and horseshoes! The beach, close to your Belize Vacation Rental, offers the opportunity for paddle boarding, kayaking and sailing.
The Crimson Orchid Inn has a fully licensed bar just above the jungle that has views around Orchid Bay and across the water to the Cerros Peninsula and to the north the distant town of Chetumal on the Yucatan Peninsula. The roof deck offers guests of the Inn for relaxing sunbathing by day and stargazing by night.
Visit Lamanai, the ancient Mayan Metropolis in the heart of Belize. Stephen will either tell you how to get to the departure point on the New River at Lamanai Eco Tours or escort you on the fabulous 25 mile boat trip up river to the ruins. Stephen is not a guide but can accompany you on the trip that he rates #1 in all Belize. The boat drivers/guides are exceedingly knowledgeable of all things Mayan and superb naturalists.
Also available are fishing tours on the New River and Lamanai Lagoon.
