For such a small country you can enjoy and incredible diversity of experiences on a holiday in Belize.
There are little visited Mayan ruins, national parks stuffed to the gills with birdlife and a Caribbean coastline dotted with idyllic islands and coral reefs.
Belize’s barrier reef is second in length only to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and the marine life be found here is easily a match.
Dotted along the reef are around 450 tropical islands known as cayes.
Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye exude a mellow Caribbean ambience and boast serene stretches of white sand.
Ambergris also boasts some luxurious resorts while the only town on the island, San Pedro, offers a fascinating window on local life.
Nearby reefs provide excellent snorkelling and scuba diving whilst more experienced divers flock to visit the renowned Blue Hole.
San Ignacio is a easy going little town up in the highlands of Belize is the gateway for the Cayo district.
From here you can explore Mayan ruins explore the jungle on hiking trails, drift down the Mopan River on a kayak or river tube or even cave tubing.
It’s estimated that hundreds of Mayan sites are still waiting to be discovered in the jungles of Belize.
The best preserved, Caracol and Xunantunich are both easy day trips from San Ignacio and despite being Belize’s most visited sites are tranquil spots far away from the throngs visiting Mexico’s mayan sites.
San Ignacio is also a convenient jumping off point for Guatemala and the stupendous Mayan site of Tikal is within easy striking distance.
