You'll get in some beach time at Secret Beach Belize and The Split. Step off the beaten path and head to Shark Ray Alley and Spas. Change things up with these side-trips from San Pedro: Zipline (in Belize City) and Caye Caulker (Turneffe Reef, Red Flower Gallery, &more). There's lots more to do: explore the gorgeous colors at Hol Chan Marine Reserve, look for gifts at 12 Belize, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Bacalar Chico National Park and Marine Reserve.
