Vitamin Sea: Sailing in Belize for Wellness and Yoga

Share

In the heart of “the other Caribbean” in Belize…you will find wellness and retreat at sea.
This past January, I had the opportunity to sail out of Belize City on the 46ft Fountaine Pajot catamaran TRANQUILITY. This beautiful and aptly-named yacht was our wellness and yoga retreat in Belize. While I may not have perfected my yoga headstand on this fam trip, I can confirm that it’s better to practice yoga on the forward deck of your private yacht than on a paddleboard! Not only did I rediscover the best sailing within this “2nd greatest barrier reef system”, I met the finely-tuned team of yacht crew, dock staff, office and Belize in-house concierge service.

Divers’ Delight Trust me, there are very few dive-equipped sailing catamarans or even yachts that offer PADI DIVE instruction for your first or 30th dive adventure.  Imagine exploring the underwater treasures of the Amalfi Coast, Sardinia, Aeolian and Egadi Islands. OMBRE BLU is registered PADI Diving Centre, and she is equipped for easy access directly from […]

My First Trip to Belize and the S/Y LUNA SEA

Every time I douse my scrambled eggs with Marie Sharp’s hot sauce, I become nostalgic for fry jacks, pupusas and tamales. The memories of my first trip to Belize rush back to me and I yearn to swing in colorful hammocks, swim with sharks and rays, explore bat caves and climb Mayan Ruins!
