Belize is a place of two halves (subtropical and sylvan inland and a caye-strewn coastline) and many tongues. English is the official language, which makes travel a breeze, but you might also hear Kriol, Spanish, Garifuna and Maya — perhaps even the German dialect of remote Mennonite farming communities. Our specialists love planning Belize tours that take in all this rich miscellany. For your travels, they might suggest the lagoons and jungle of the Orange Walk District — where Maya temples still sit half-submerged by forest — or visits to enigmatic lowland caves and the organic cacao producers of the undeveloped Toledo District.
They’d also say that holidays to Belize are rarely complete without you spending time in the languid, limpid waters of the Caribbean, which lap multiple offshore sandy cayes and atolls. You might explore the Blue Hole, one of the biggest stars in the scuba-diving firmament. If you don’t have diving experience, it’s no matter: Belize’s waters are chock-full of rewarding snorkeling sites.
