Professional Travel Service, Inc., escorted trip: Belize, August 2017
Hello, everyone! My name is Amy Drackert, and I am a travel advisor for Professional Travel Services. I am putting together a group to visit Belize this August, and would like to invite you to join us!
We will depart Seattle August 4 and return August 14, but I have put together a flexible itinerary framework that can be adjusted to suit your family. And of course, I'll be there--with my family--to assist with any on-site arrangements.
Have a look, and give me a call!
Belize. Bordered by the second largest barrier reef in the world, it is an amazing place to dive and snorkel. The little island we’ll be spending most of our time on, Ambergris Caye, is small enough that the preferred methods of getting around are golf carts and bicycles.
The pace is slow, the people are friendly, and friends that have been there are speak highly of it. Summertime is always so busy for me, I think this will be a great time to relax.
We will depart Seattle on Friday August 4, late in the evening, and arrive in Belize City very early on August 5. I am working with Delta Vacations on the international flights, lodging in Belize City--two nights at the Radisson Ft. George--and transfers to and from the airport. For my family of four, the cost of this portion is approximately $3100. Do note that it is a red-eye flight. When booking, the deposit is about $1500, the remainder will be due July 5. It is no problem to join us from other departure cities, but your quote will be slightly different, of course.
On August 7, we will take a small plane from Belize City to Ambergris Caye, about a 30 minute scenic flight. We will be staying at the Banyan Bay Suites, where my cousin and her family have stayed several times, and highly recommend. These condos come with fully equiped kitchens and continental breakfast, but there is a great restaurant on site.
Pool view suite is $1225 for 7 nights; NEW! 10% discount for new bookings, rate now $1,102.50
Beachfront suite is $1925 for 7 nights; NEW! 10% discount for new bookings, rate now $1,732.50
A 14% tax is added to that total.
These rates are for 2 adults and 2 children under 12 sharing the condo. For guests age 12 and up, there is an extra person charge of $30 per night.
Please note that ALL posted rates are subject to change!
When booking, Banyan Bay will take 2 nights as a deposit (which currently is $399 for pool view, $627 for beachfront, including the taxes). The balance will be due July 5. Please note that the 2-bedroom condos can sleep 5 people with a slight upcharge, and there are also some 3-bedroom suites available.
We will depart Ambergris Caye early in the morning August 14, transfer in Belize City, and return to Seattle late that same evening.
Banyan Bay Suites will assist me in arranging the flights from Belize City to Ambergris Caye, the cost is $142 per person including the group discount. They are small planes, we may not all be on the same flight. Payment for the flights will be due July 5 along with the balance payment to Banyan Bay Suites. A ferry is available if you'd prefer, it takes about 90 minutes.
To summarize, cost for a family of four is approximately:
Delta Vacations $3200.00 (international flights from SEA, Belize City hotel, airport transfers): Banyan Bay Suites $1257.00 (lodging, Ambergris Caye, including taxes): Flights to the island $ 568.00 (arranged via Banyan Bay, $142x4): Total for a family of four $5024.50*
*Usual disclaimer, all prices are subject to change until booked. Airfare can change daily.
Oh, and travel insurance is available through TravelGuard and highly recommended. Insurance cost is based on covereate selected, the age of the traveler, and the cost of the trip, but minor children are included at no charge.
Please note that this quote does not include anyexcursions! My family plans to visit the Belize Zoo in Belize City, the Mayan ruins at Altun Ha, and to go snorkeling at the Hol Chan Snorkel Preserve and the Blue Hole when we’re out on Ambergris. Other possible activities include diving, deep water fishing, zip lining, river rafting, wildlife tours, boat tours. Excursions can be arranged through Banyan Bay on site, or ahead of time thru me.
This is a limited time offer! Airfare prices are good right now, and there are still condos available, so please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested! At any time, prices and availability may change.
If these exact dates don't work, you can travel on other dates, and from other departure cities. It is indeed flexible!
