Ray Caye private island resort vacation


Sorry, but this contest ended February 29. Sign up for our e-mail newsletter or follow us on Facebook for similar opportunities in the future.

Would you rather be kicking back on that Belize island above right now? Snorkeling in those warm waters and sunning on the beach?

That’s Ray Caye, one of two stunning places you’ll be staying if you enter our Belize vacation giveaway this month.

Every once in a while we like to team up with some of our partners to give back to our regular readers interested in luxury travel in the Americas. This time we’ve got a great Caribbean beach break to offer from Chabil Mar Villas in Placencia and Ray Caye private island resort near the longest coral reef in the Americas.

The winner and a guest will get four nights in a one-bedroom suite at Chabil Mar Villas, with lots of room to spread out: at least 1,000 square feet.

Then they’ll travel by boat to spend three nights in a cabana at Ray Caye Resort.

The trip includes all ground and boat transfers, plus one romantic dinner for two on the pier at Chabil Mar Villas. There will be a few other nice things coming your way after arrival since Chabil Mar likes to overdeliver for their guests. At Raye Caye you’ll have use of kayaks, paddleboards, and snorkeling gear.

Yes, you have to get yourself to Placencia, Belize from wherever you live, but this trip has an approximate value of at least $2,600. And you’ll be in an area with the best beaches in the country.

What do we get out of this deal? Well, we’re always wanting to find out more about you, our readers. (Without all the Big Brother tracking you’re experiencing from Google and Facebook.) So you have to fill out a short survey to enter. You should be done in two minutes or less. Then you’ll be in a group of names we’re picking from at random after this ends on February 29, 2020.

You can see contest details here and the whole page of rules and conditions here if you’re interested. But the key things are, you have to enter to win, only one entry per person, and you have to take the trip in 2020 before December 15.

You could rent a car in Belize City and drive down the scenic Hummingbird Highway. Otherwise, after you arrive in Placencia’s small airport you will get transferred to your suite by the sea at Chabil Mar Villas. This is the closest luxe resort to the town of Placencia and is on a nice stretch of sand with a pier. See our Chabil Mar review here.

Then you’ll travel by boat out to the famous reef that attracts scuba divers from around the world. You’ll stay on the private island of Ray Caye, where you can pretend you’ve escaped from the paparazzi. You won’t be “off the grid” though. This is a luxurious hideaway where you can still check your e-mail if you must. If you’ve always wanted to visit Belize or you’ve been longing to return, here’s your chance to experience it well on someone else’s tab.

Don’t put this off though! The contest is only open for the month of February, then we’ll be picking the winner at random in March. After that, a lucky reader and their guest will be booking their flight to Belize for a 7-night vacation in style. Will it be you?
