Birds in every colour of the rainbow. Horseback rides through rainforests to ruined Mayan cities. Canoeing along the Rio Grande. Jaguar preserves and unbroken coral reefs. Fabulous beaches. This is what comes to mind when we think of Belize.
For such a tiny country, Belize is packed with a surprisingly large number of fascinating experiences.
The first time, for example, you dive beneath the warm waters of the Caribbean, you will be amazed at the diversity and colour of the undersea world. The Belize Barrier Reef is the second largest on the planet, and the snorkelling – amongst friendly rays, turtles and nurse sharks – is simply sensational.
And then there are the lush rainforests, home not only to rare flora and fauna, but to ancient Mayan ruins. Talk to one of our Belize experts about a tailor-made itinerary, and they will arrange a pilgrimage to the remarkable archaeological site of Caracol with three temples on its summit. You’ll discover a Mayan acropolis, an astronomic observatory and stepped plazas – all hidden away in high-canopied jungle.
With the expertise of our specialists, your holiday could end with total relaxation, cruising off in a small, luxury sailing boat to deserted islands and secret lagoons where you can fish; sunbathe on empty, white beaches or simply laze about on board listening to the gentle lap of the sea.
