Belize is home to lively cultures, untamed natural beauty and exotic wildlife. This tropical paradise is the closest thing to Eden you will ever find. Explore its wonders, while discovering the country's adventurous and relaxing lifestyle.
Avid scuba divers and snorkelers will flock to discover the wonders of the spectacular off-shore reef, Belize’s number-one attraction. From the Placencia Peninsula to the exquisite islands of Caye Caulker, Ambergris Caye and Cayo Espanto, everything you expect from a Caribbean getaway can be found here.
- Lamanai Temple Pyramid Slide 1 of 3: At the entrance to the New River Lagoon, visitors can view the ruins of Lamanai — huge stone masks that rise up out of thick rain forest that represent former rulers and Mayan Gods.
- Ambergris Caye Slide 2 of 3: Belize’s largest island, Amergris Caye, is best known for its exciting water sports and dive sites, but the beautiful beach can entice visitors into doing nothing at all.
- Marine Life Slide 3 of 3: Divers and snorkelers may enjoy sightings of colorful red cushion sea stars that lie on a shallow sandy seafloor off the coast of Belize in the Caribbean Sea.
For breathtaking adventure, go underground to discover the Caves Branch River system. Spend the day diving into the abyss of the famed Blue Hole — a collapsed cave visible from outer space. For a more laid-back experience, venture to Caye Caulker or the popular sites of Shark-Ray Alley and Hol Chan Marine Reserve. Or, explore a vast number of fascinating Mayan ruins. Must-see sites include Xunantunich, Lamanai and Caracol — the largest ruin in Belize, located deep in the Chiquibil Forest Reserve.
Hike or bike the 126,000-acre Mountain Pine Ridge nature preserve, offering many hills, gorges, pools and waterfalls to explore. In the north, enjoy the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary; in the south, hike up Victoria Peak, Belize's tallest mountain. Caye Chapel, one of the most exquisite courses in the Caribbean, entices golfers with its championship caliber of play.
For an authentic experience, indulge in some local fare, such as fry jacks (fluffy fried dough crescents), conch fritters, soursop ice cream (made from tropical fruit) and rum punch. From Carnival in February to Lobsterfest in June, a getaway to Belize is always a good time.
