A naturalist's fantasy run wild, Belize delivers on every exotic front. Day-glo birds soar overhead and colorful sea creatures dart through underwater reefs. This is a region dotted with Mayan ruins that rise from jungle canopies and pristine white-sand beaches that line the coast.
Sprawled out sun-worshippers, warm water lovers, and rum cocktail aficionados will all revel in the chill Caribbean vibe of Belize.
Earn your cultural stripes with a walking tour of the historic capital of Belize City. Dig into its long colonial history and unearth a national appreciation that goes far deeper than the country’s scenic beaches and tropical landscape.
Amp up the eco-adventure with a trek to ancient Mayan ruins, an intrepid jungle excursion, or a lazy morning canoe trip down the Macal River.
Even with their hypnotic feathers and psychedelic bills, Belize’s jungle birds can be tough to spot. Trust an expert local guide to point out the exotic wildlife tucked amid the shady treetops.
Over 400 feet deep, with crystal clear waters and a color wheel of coral in the surrounding reef, Belize's famed Blue Hole is far beyond your average dive site. It's an aquatic marvel at the top of every diver’s bucket list.
Settle in and take a long, slow sip of the Caribbean. Rum punch and tropical sun blend on the silky sand beaches of Caye Caulker to create the ultimate chill-out destination.
Often called "rainforests of the sea," coral reefs form some of the richest ecosystems on earth.
