Belize is where lush, verdant jungles meet dreamlike Caribbean beaches, an impossibly photogenic country that will satisfy cravings for both utter relaxation and all-out adventure.
A rich vein of ancient Mayan influences runs through the culture here. Bring a piece of it home by visiting one of the workshops of the many local artisans who produce ornate handicrafts using Mayan techniques passed down through the generations.
Between the jungle canopies filled with howler monkeys and parrots, the endless array of isolated, pure-white beaches and the vast Belize Barrier Reef (second only to the Great Barrier Reef in size), this is a destination overflowing with natural wonders.
Dive the world-renowned Blue Hole, made famous by adventurer Jack Cousteau; zipline through the jungle; or snorkel, kayak, windsurf and more. For a taste of true adventure, stay in a treehouse deep in the jungle, or choose an all-inclusive luxury resort instead – the choice is yours.
