Plan Your Ideal Vacation
Some people come to Belize to do nothing but relax on the beach and soak up the sun, and there’s certainly nothing wrong with that. But if you’re looking for the kinds of adventures you can only have in Belize, we have several suggestions for you:
Visit the Belize Barrier Reef
The Belize Barrier Reef is the largest reef system in the Western Hemisphere and the second-largest in the world. It stretches nearly 200 miles along the northeastern coast of Belize. The reef ecosystem supports a diverse array of marine life, including hundreds of species of fish, corals, mollusks, sea turtles, sharks, and dolphins.
The reef is divided into several zones. Each one has its own features and inhabitants. Beginner snorkelers can explore the shallow waters of the inner reef, where vibrant coral formations and colorful tropical fish abound. Experienced divers can venture out to the deep waters of the outer reef. They might encounter larger marine creatures like sharks and barracudas.
For more than two thousand years, the Maya civilization dominated large swaths of what is now known as Central America. Belize is dotted with Mayan ruins that were abandoned centuries ago. Of these sites, none is more well-known than Xunantunich. The name Xunantunich, means “Stone Woman” in the Maya language. It echoes a legend about a female spirit that haunts the site’s central El Castillo pyramid.
Climb the staircase that ascends the pyramid to get a closer look at the ornate figures carved into its stone walls. You can take in the breathtaking view of the surrounding jungle and the nearby Mopan River.
Meet and Mingle with Belize’s Wildlife
Belize is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including jaguars, howler monkeys, toucans, and manatees. There are several national parks replete with rivers, lagoons, and jungles that are teeming with life.
You can take a guided jungle tour or riverboat tour to learn more about Belize’s wildlife or opt to stay at one of Belize’s many eco-lodges and resorts that offer nature-focused activities such as guided hikes, birdwatching tours, and nocturnal wildlife encounters.
Experience the Flavor of Belize
Belize’s cuisine is a blend of Caribbean, Latin American, and Mayan influences. There is fresh seafood, tropical fruits, and spices featured on most menus. July is a great time to sample Belizean cuisine during the Lobster Fest celebrations in San Pedro, Caye Caulker, and Placencia. Visitors can also explore the country’s markets and restaurants to try traditional dishes like rice and beans, fry jacks, and ceviche.
Flights to Belize
June is one of the best times of year to visit Belize. The early weeks of the rainy season bring warmer weather and cooling afternoon showers, while the heavier rains and storms don’t arrive until later in the summer. The post-peak-season crowds are smaller, but the weather is still perfect for vacationers seeking fun in the sun.
