Belize is the country that has the lowest population density in Central America – and if you still dream about a Crusoesque adventure now and again, Belize has just the place – an unpopulated island in the middle of a coral reef!
The remote and privately owned Bird Island not far from the village of Placencia is now offered for rent on Airbnb for $495 a night. The bad news is the property has already been booked out until 2018!
If you don’t mind waiting, you will be able to enjoy one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world: Belize is known for its abundance of terrestrial and marine species, its coral reefs and if you start craving human company the mainland is only half an hour away, with its famous punta music and diversity of languages.
If you book Bird Island, its owners will take you to the island personally on a 30-minute boat ride
