Great things come in small packages
Belize might be small, but don’t let that make you think that you won’t discover a treasury of wonders on a Belize holiday. Boasting the world’s second longest coral reef and low sandy islands dotting pristine sea waters, Belize is the archetypal tropical paradise. And with a wealth of Mayan heritage to discover as well, your stay in Belize will be a true adventure.
Belize’s varied wildlife includes monkey, fox and snake, as well as manatee, shark, stingray and shoals of tropical fish. The sea water is so clear that snorkellers and divers have reported clear visibility of up to 60 metres. And with dolphins regularly interacting with people too, if you love marine life, Belize is hard to beat.
Head inland to the Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve and you will discover the lush rainforests that cover half the country. It’s here that you can take a boat trip along the winding network of jungle rivers and lakes, and experience first-hand Belize’s astonishing diversity of animal and bird life.
Along with spectacular wildlife, Belize has a wealth of Mayan ruins. Sites like Xunantunich, Altun Ha and Caracol, and burial caves at Actun Tunichil Muknal are just as beautiful as Mexico’s better known counterparts but much less crowded. They offer wonderfully intimate glimpses of a mysterious bygone age.
With accommodation in atmospheric ecolodges, and the very best 4x4 vehicles, as well as expert guides and specialist knowledge, your Belize holiday will not disappoint.
