Gorgeous tropical islands, exotic nature, and ancient Maya cities await in this Central American paradise.
Blessed with beautiful biodiversity, Belize is a mecca for travelers who love to explore the great outdoors. Whether you prefer to marvel at the kaleidoscope of marine flora and fauna of the Belize Barrier Reef or explore the jungles and parks of the mainland in search of birds and wildlife, Belize has something for everyone. Add in a healthy dose of cultural diversity and a rich Maya heritage, and it's easy to see why Belize is rapidly becoming a top travel destination.
Perhaps the most iconic landscape in Belize is its vast Caribbean coastline. Home to beautiful sugar sand beaches, coral reefs, and picture postcard perfect islands, there's no doubt that Belize has much to offer. Top spots include snorkeling off the island of Ambergris Caye, spotting nurse sharks and stingrays at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, windsurfing at Caye Caulker, and diving more than 400 feet into the subterranean caverns of the Belize Blue Hole.
Thanks to an aggressive conservation program, more than half of Belize is set aside as unspoiled nature reserves, animal sanctuaries, and parks. The country's western Cayo District is home to unspoiled forests, beautiful waterfalls, sacred caves, and enormous ancient Maya cities. Other top attractions include spotting rare avian species like the Jabiru stork in the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary and jaguars that roam the Cockscomb Basin.
For many decades, Belize was a British colony, and travelers can get a glimpse of this history by touring museums and buildings in Belize City. Other cultural experiences include visiting Dangriga, the cultural capital of the country that is home to the unique Garifuna culture, Mennonite farms where German is spoken, and Maya villages where locals have preserved the music, dance, and ancient wisdom of their ancestors.
Best of all, it's easy to traverse this incredibly diverse country using the network of reliable and inexpensive public buses. English is the official language, but travelers can also hear Spanish, Garifuna, Kriol, and even Chinese as they pass through different communities. The relaxed pace of life, world-renowned hospitality of the locals, and fabulous weather combine to make Belize a truly wonderful place to visit at any time of the year.
