Reasons to Visit
The west of Belize is particularly well known for its spectacular stalactite-filled cave systems. Some, such as Actun Tunichil Muknal cave, are full of Mayan artefacts and sacrificial remains and involve an exhilarating adventure. Others, such as Barton Creek cave, can be viewed in a more relaxed way by canoe, while some can be reached simply by walking across slippery rocks.
Beautiful clear waters and the world’s second longest coral reef system surround Belize and incredible sealife awaits discovery. Even when diving to a depth of 40 metres with the sun streaming through the water, it feels as if you are only just beneath the ocean’s surface.
Belize is made up of hundreds of cayes and tiny islands called atolls surrounded by clear waters and stunning reefs. They make for ideal hideaways for those looking for some peace, relaxation and wonderful diving and snorkelling.
Caracol is the largest Maya archaeological site in Belize. Surrounded by rainforest, its most distinguishable feature is the massive pyramid capped by three temples that rises over 50 metres above the jungle floor. Teeming with wildlife, the historic remains of Tikal are also impressive and worth a visit.
You can't beat tramping through the hot and steamy rainforests in Belize. Especially in the early morning as the jungle comes alive with the incredible noise of howler monkeys barking and the squawks of macaws.
There is nothing quite like river-tubing in Belize. You walk with your tube through the steamy jungle until you get to the jumping in point from where your journey begins. Here, you simply sit in your tube and float down the river with nothing but the sounds of the forest surrounding you, through huge caverns with stalactites looming down at you out of the dark!
