Things to Do in Belize

Belize has the best of both worlds. Beautiful coastal cayes and lush tropical jungle. This small country offers a huge range of activities and attractions. While a day at the spa of course can’t be forgotten, this area of the Caribbean Sea is also home to the second-longest barrier reef in the world, the MesoAmerican Reef. It’s an unbelievable place to dive the famous blue hole or snorkel with nurse sharks and sea turtles.

Things to do

Further inland towards the border with Guatemala, the lush forest hosts to colorful wildlife and remnants of ancient Mayan civilisations. From zip lining to cave kayaking, archaeological sites like Actun Tunichil Muknal with its ceramics and skeletons, the ancient ritualistic site at Xunantunich and Caracol, the largest Maya archaeological site in Belize, are essential places to visit.
