Belize: The Best Country For Adventure
Ask travel agents, writers and tourism professionals to describe Belize, you’ll likely hear descriptors like, “laid-back,” “relaxing” and “expat haven.” But the nation is quickly gaining a reputation for the place in Central America to go for a vacation that’s all about adventure.
Does this mean travelers won’t find sandy beaches, warm temperatures and warmer people? Of course not. Adventure is just the latest vacation genre for today’s active traveler who finds in Belize a cornucopia of choices that extend to folks who would rather challenge their mettle than lie on a beach and stare at the ocean.
How do you know whether Belize adventure travel is for you? Follow the advice of University of Cape Town PhD candidate Donné. She hosts the “Where’s My Dopamine?” website and is as fascinated by the subject of neurochemicals as she is about seeing the world.
“Travel will challenge so much of what you know about yourself,” she writes. You get “a rare and invaluable opportunity to grow as an individual and discover your limits. In truth, you don’t have to travel far to get out of your comfort zone.”
Since Belize is just a couple of hours away by plane, you don’t have to exhaust yourself traveling to arrive in country and immediately find a list of adventures guaranteed to push your boundaries. Your time in Belize has the potential to impact you so much, the world won’t look the same once you discover your Indiana Jones.
