How to enjoy Belize

Jacques Cousteau described Belize as, ‘One of the four must-dive destinations on this blue planet’—explore coral atolls, the Blue Hole and a vibrant, colorful barrier reef. And why not divide your time between beach and jungle...

  • Dive deep into the Big Blue Hole to discover marine stalactites that stretch up to 15m in length
  • Explore some of Belize’s 200 or so islands and cayes for secluded beaches and fabulous dive sites
  • Visit Caracol to see archaeology in action as the site is still be excavated and examined today

Belize delightfully combines ancient culture with rich wildlife on land and at sea. Caracol, tucked away in the heart of the Chiquibul Forest Reserve is one of the world’s foremost Mayan archaeological sites and its main pyramid, Caana, is the country’s tallest manmade structure. The Reserve itself is home to spectacular Scarlet Macaws, equally colorful Keel Billed Toucans and the rare Baird’s Tapir.

Culture is not just about historical remains of course and the hand-painted signs found throughout the nation aptly capture the laid back essence of the country’s culture: ‘No shirt, no shoes, no problem’. One of Belize’s greatest draws is the quality of its dive sites. Warm waters, a rainbow of coral and fish, and barrier reef stretching from Mexico to southern Belize are just some of the qualities that attract divers and snorkelers from all over the world.
