The Joys of Traveling in Belize

The Joys of Traveling in Belize

Belize is a small Central American country that offers amazing diversity. Whether you are an ecotourist or an adventurer, a history buff or beach lover, Belize will have something to pique your interest.

Travel through the interior and you can experience Maya ruins, rainforests and waterfalls. There are many species of colorful tropical birds as well as the world’s only jaguar preserve. You can take a cave tour, zipline through the canopy, travel along the river, or learn to make chocolate the way the ancient Maya did.

Go to the coast and you will feel like you’re in a different country, one with beautiful beaches and numerous cayes, as well as the world’s second largest barrier reef.

Thanks to the country’s small size, travel between regions is easy. The country is only 68 miles wide and 180 miles long, making it a breeze to experience everything Belize has to offer. Additionally, English is the official language, which makes it simple to get around.

Beautiful Ambergris Caye

While the entire country is a tourist mecca, the most popular destination for visitors is Ambergris Caye. On this one island, thanks to its diversity, you will find a microcosm of the country. There is even an ancient Maya site that is being excavated.

As the island is close to the Belize Barrier Reef, it’s a paradise for those who want to go scuba diving or snorkeling. Deep sea fishing, sailing and other water sports are also possible. For nature lovers, manatees and a variety of birds can be observed. There is even a place where visitors can swim with gentle nurse sharks and manta rays.

Sunbathers will love the pristine beaches and shopping enthusiasts will find the local crafts interesting. A variety of restaurants provide delicious fare for reasonable prices and there are several spas that allow guests to have a day of relaxation.

There are private spots for romantic interludes or quiet reflection. For those who want more social interaction, fresh air markets and the occasional festival provide ample opportunity to chat with locals. In the evenings, there is a vibrant social scene. Live music is often available as well as other entertainments.

Given all of these wonderful amenities, it is no wonder that many people seek to own a vacation home or retire in Belize.
