Of lush jungles and an azure Caribbean Sea, Belize makes for quite a traveler’s paradise and offers a world of pristine experiences.
In the western part of the country, the Cayo District is known for its Mayan ruins, cave systems, thundering falls and lush jungles. Cayo is an eco-tourism wonderland, teeming with colorful flowers and countless other indigenous creatures. Whether you explore the Mayan ruins of Caracol or canoe the Macal River—what’s best is you can enjoy it all in a single day.
The Orange Walk District is much more than sugar, soybean and honey country. The sights and sounds of nature abound here, either at the famous Mayan ruins of Lamanai or at various places along the New River for the jungle river adventurer. And, with over 400 species of birds recorded in this district, more so than anywhere else in the country, the Orange Walk District is truly a birder’s paradise.
With the Caribbean Sea in the east, boasting a privileged location lies the sleepy fishing village of Placencia. Beach combing, visiting the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, exploring the Mayan ruins at Lubaantun, or enjoying some of the best sport fishing in the country are just a few of the activities to enjoy.
Ambergris Caye is the largest of the cayes, located off the northeast coast of Belize in the Caribbean Sea. With a barrier reef being just a short boat ride away, Ambergris Caye is a paradise for fisherman and snorkelers, and an excellent base for dive tours to more than 35 sites, as well as mainland adventure.
This is our Alluring Belize, personalities that make for a traveler’s paradise.
