There are many things to do in Belize. The country is small (smaller than Massachusetts), but packed with adventure travel activities.
The weather in Belize is tropical and wet. February through mid-April are the driest months of the year. The high season is crowded, but much more comfortable than the hot, humid summer time.
Visit the ancient Mayan ruins. There are 5 major ruins as well as many smaller sites across the country.
Snorkel the Belize Barrier Reef. Glover’s Reef Atoll is a Unesco World Heritage site and a marine park. It is 35 miles offshore and 70 miles from Belize City. As a result of being so remote, it is also well protected.
Hike in a Jaguar Preserve – Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary. Go hiking through the Jungle and look for jaguars, although they are rarely visible.
Look for wildlife. Both the Belize Zoo and the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary and Birds Eye View Lodge are excellent places to view native wildlife and especially birds.
Go rafting or kayaking on the Caves Branch River. Sign up with an outfitter to take this unique travel adventure, as you float down the river, through the caves.
