With one foot in the soft sands of the Caribbean and the other planted firmly in dense jungles, tumbling waterfalls and forested mountains that hide ancient Mayan cities amidst incredible wildlife, Belize brings out the adventurer in all of us! Explore the limestone caverns of the Cayo District, marvel at the Mayan metropolis of Caracol, spot jaguar at the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and then, once over, enjoy some R&R on the powder-soft sandy beaches and warm turquoise waters of Belize’s Cayes. Below the water, the “Blue Hole” needs little introduction but this is but a small part of Belize’s “Great Mayan Reef” the second largest barrier reef in the world and a mecca for divers and snorkellers alike.
Belize may well combine beautifully with its regional Mayan neighbours Mexico and Guatemala, but its breathtaking natural diversity and own ancient wonders make it a standalone destination in its own right. Small but very beautiful!
