Why Barcelona People Should Visit Belize
As a Catalan, you’re accustomed to sunny summers and warm winters, and as a citizen or Barcelona, you’ve got more than your fair share of beach time. So why would I recommend Belize, an area known for sunny weather and gorgeous beaches to
While it’s true that the same activities you can do in Belize, you can do in your hometown as well, Belize has a lot more to offer in terms of exotic places and fun times. Let’s walk you through what it means to visit this corner of Paradise.
Iconic Landscapes & Adventurous Hiking
People living in Barcelona are used to walking and climbing, but if you’re looking for a change of scenery, Belize is the perfect location!
Besides the luxurious forests and vegetation, this vacation destination offers a prize at the end of every hiking! In your explorations, you are bound to find a huge cave or an old temple that’s worth looking into. Not to mention, the mountains
are filled with relics from the Mayan civilization, an ancient and mysterious culture that excites the curious mind.
The Heart of an Extinguished Civilization
Belize is the cradle of the Mayan civilization, and there are relics, temples, and traces of this culture everywhere.
Some have been dug up, so the tourists can visit and enjoy, but many are still in the ground or scattered across the country, so you may never know what you’ll find!
While Barcelona is no stranger to artifacts from old civilizations, they’ve been all excavated and displayed. Tourists can book tours specially designed to see these relics (check this website for more information, so you don’t get the thrill of discovering them yourself.
Gorgeous Waters & Water Activities
Belize is blessed with access to the world-famous Caribbean Sea, which allows tourists to explore some gorgeous waters and try plenty of fun water sports. The multitude of islands of which the country is comprised is perfect for activities such as
fishing, snorkeling, and diving. Not to mention, the sea fauna is marvelous!
The Belize waters are also famous for the underwater Blue Hole, where divers can experience a new world. It is believed the hole
is 412 feet deep and 1000 feet wide, but what’s in it is a lot more interesting. From curious geological formations to unique marine creatures, this hole is a huge attraction for anyone who enjoys exploring the deep.
But if the idea of exploring the waters, its islands or its holes doesn’t have you sold, maybe the second largest barrier reef in the world might. Belize can offer you the unique opportunity to go snorkeling around beautiful corals, in the clear
blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. It is something you can only explore in two places on Earth, so you shouldn’t miss it!
Relaxation in Nature
The final argument I have is relaxation. Barcelona may be a gorgeous city, but it is also crowded and noisy.
So, if you want to get away from the crazy, urban life, Belize has tropical forests, impressive cascades, and lots of places where you can hide and be alone with Mother Nature. Specialists everywhere recommend spending time in nature, away from devices
and other distractions, in order to regain your inner balance and peace of mind.
Luckily, Belize can do that all year long, you just have to go there!
