In 1799, an adventurous English sea merchant landed in the small ex-buccaneer- turned-logger colony of British Honduras, fell in love with a native girl, and embraced the charmingly relaxed lifestyle of what later became Belize, – as did many other Scottish men who followed in his footsteps. Just north of Belize City, Smuggler’s Run Plantation harks back to that era of Colonial Belize, with large British Colonial-style estates, rainforest adventure tours, and even a Scottish-style golf course. The combination of Scottish heritage and Mayan roots blend intriguingly together, making Smuggler’s Run Plantation a dream destination only possible in Belize.
