Home to the howler monkeys and many rare bird species, Central Belize is perfect for travelers looking to get into the wild.
The Maya temples at Altun Ha are great for birders who want to see feathered friends and check out ancient culture. Belize City is known for architecture from our colonial days; its “Kriol” culture still thrives today. While you’re there, ask a local to teach you a little Kriol. Even though Belize is an English-speaking country, we still speak it in our own way.
The North Islands are all about relaxing.
Here, you can take in the day lounging on the beach with a good book or a pleasant conversation. Of course, if you’re not into relaxing all the time, there’s plenty to do under the sea. Check out the Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley for snorkeling and scuba diving. It’s some of the best in the world. And something you’ll surely talk about when you get back to the beach.
Northern Belize is home to one of our largest Maya sites.
The New River—an ancient Maya waterway—showcases the wildlife and beautiful scenery of Northern Belize. Take a boat ride to the Ancient Maya Temples for an up-close look at wildlife, sugar cane fields and a glimpse of the Mennonite farms. The temples are a look at our mysterious and amazing Maya ancestry. When it comes to seeing a lot in a small amount of time, Northern Belize is definitely the place to go. Get plenty of rest. It’s going to be a busy trip.
The Southeast Coast is a blend of culture and adventure.
From Maya mountain views to the golden sand beaches, SE has something for everyone. As you wind your way along the Hummingbird Highway, stop at one of the world’s only jaguar sanctuaries.
Looking for some beach time? Head to Dangriga, a laid-back Garifuna seaside community near Hopkins and Placencia for kayaking, snorkeling, diving, saltwater fly-fishing, whale shark watching and just about any other “ing” that takes place in or around the ocean.
If you need a little land time, inland is full of adventures, like Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, Mayflower Bocawina and Blue Hole National Park, with a rainforest, waterfalls and a jaguar or two.
Known as a cultural melting pot, Southern Belize is home to Maya, East Indians, Chinese and the Garifuna people, who carry on their traditions today. Punta Gorda serves as the gateway to activities like off-shore fishing, river trips, caving, bird watching and ancient Maya Temples.
Western Belize is home to many archaeological sites, like Cahal Pech. When you’re done learning about the past, visit the Butterfly Farm and the Rainforest Medicinal Trails. Then, make way to Nachuch Che'em Park or cave tubing and zip lining. Here, there’s a lot to do. Just make sure you make time to relax.
The Belize Barrier Reef spans 185 miles of the country’s coastline and is part of the largest reef system in the western hemisphere.
A large portion is protected by the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, which includes seven marine reserves, four hundred fifty cayes and three atolls. The reef’s crystal blue waters are a haven for SCUBA divers and snorkelers, not to mention over five hundred species of fish, seventy hard coral and thirty six soft coral species. Put that together with the fantastic islands, hotels and natives and you’ve got yourself the dive trip of a lifetime. Discover world class diving, here in Belize.
