Often referred to as “Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret” or “The Jewel”, Belize certainly lives up to its reputation. This beautiful country is full of life with its diverse culture and history to its endless array of attractions. Set on the North East coast of Central America, Belize is the only English-speaking country in the region with the lowest population density of just over 350,000 friendly residents. Belize is one of the last unspoiled countries on earth with breath taking natural beauty. There is plenty to do and see here from the tranquil islands decorating its coastline to the majestic rainforest and mountains.
Experience world class fishing all year round for tarpons, barracudas, sail fish, and marlins. Rub shoulders with nurse sharks and sting rays while snorkeling in the different atolls along the second largest barrier reef in the world. Dive deep into the Great Blue Hole and experience life under the sea like never before. Bordered entirely on the East by the Caribbean Sea, there is no shortage of aquatic activities in Belize. If you need some relaxation after all the underwater adventure, one of the serene coral sand beaches studded with coconut trees will provide all the sun, sea and leisure you need.
Step back into history and explore the mystical ruins and temples of the Mayas which were used for spiritual rituals and royal residences. Or trek through the unspoiled jungle and enjoy sightings of rare birds, reptiles, and mammals in their natural habitat. With 40% of its land protected by National Reserves, Belize has many nature parks where thrill-seekers can tube through caves, zip line over the rainforest and speed through jungle terrain on ATVs.
There is as much entertainment throughout Belize as there are natural attractions. The towns all over this vibrant country are decorated with neon-lit bars and nightclubs offering laughter, cocktails and dancing from dusk til dawn. Visit the casinos and try your hand at lady luck on the card tables or slot machines. Enjoy shopping for local crafts and woodworks in the markets.
