We love traveling to Belize, and so will you!
We love Belize, and so should you! It’s one of the most exciting, fascinating and diverse countries in the Americas and it’s only a 2 hour flight from the US!
It’s an adventure traveler’s paradise with countless activities, from exploring Mayan ruins hidden in the jungle to snorkeling and diving on the second largest barrier reef in the world, to sampling delicious local cuisine, or just relaxing to the local vibe and meeting the country’s friendly locals.
Here are some reasons why we love Belize so much…
1. Amazing Underwater Experiences
With the second longest barrier reef in the world (after Australia’s), at 185 miles long, Belize offers plenty of amazing underwater experiences for snorkelers and scuba divers alike. Nowhere in Belize is more than 90 miles away from the Caribbean Sea, so you never have to travel far to enjoy the reef.
2. Easily Accessible Jungle Adventures
Belize has some of the most easily accessible jungle in the world. There are a lot of options here, from jungle hikes to more adventurous activities like caving, jungle survival courses, rappelling and spotting the elusive jaguar.
3. Luxury Hotels
Belize is home to dozens of luxurious boutique hotels, both on the tropical coast and inland for access to the jungle. Some of them are truly spectacular properties where nothing is overlooked, with service and comfort levels that rival some of the finest hotels in the world.
4. Mayan Ruins
The Belize jungle is dotted with ancient Mayan sites, both excavated and unexplored. The country is a paradise for those interested in ancient history, with huge potential for off the beaten path archaeological explorations.
5. Tropical Wildlife Encounters
There’s no shortage of places to see the local fauna in Belize. From the world-renowned Belize zoo, to the delightful Baboon Sanctuary, butterfly farms, wildlife refuges and protected areas, the opportunities are endless.
