ultimate belize bucket list

If you asked a random person on the street to tell you what they know about Belize, you might not get much of a response. But the travel community is starting to recognize the potential in this Central American nation poised perfectly alongside the Caribbean Sea hugging the Equator. No matter what type of vacation you’re looking for, there’s a reason to make Belize your destination for 2022.

A World-Class Diving Location

The Belize Barrier Reef is a sprawling reef ecosystem that’s the second largest of its kind and sits only 50 miles from the country’s shore. The diving spots here are renowned throughout the world, but there are dozens more sprinkled along the coast as well. But if you don’t have the guts for diving, there are plenty of other ways to explore these open waters — with snorkeling and fishing standing out as popular choices. And if you just want to lay back and enjoy the beauty in peace, there are over 400 islands off the coast.

A Country of Stunning Natural Beauty

Belize Jungle Tours

The waters surrounding Belize are absolutely stunning, but you’ll find just as much beauty on land. Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Reserve isn’t that far from the beach — but if you continue to head further west, you’ll find yourself among a sprawling network of jungles and mountains, caves and rivers. The Cayo District is often regarded as the “Wild West of Belize”, and you could easily spend a whole vacation exploring this region without ever catching a glimpse of the Caribbean.

A Rich and Complex History

Vacation can be a way to commune with the past, and there’s plenty of past to dive into in Belize. Belize is also home to a wide variety of archaeological sites that remain from the Maya Empire, and the Cayo District in particular was once a hub of the civilized world in Central America. You can check out shockingly intact ruins like the temple of Xunantunich or venture into Actun Tunichil Muknal — a cave believed to be an entrance to the underworld and once a site of human sacrifice.

Cultures Worth Exploring

Of course, there’s plenty of living history in Belize as well — and none of it, fortunately, involves blood sacrifices. The coastal towns of Hopkins and Dangriga are home to the Garifuna people, and the music, dance, and food of these Afro-Caribbean people permeate the way of life. But they’re just one piece of a tapestry that includes Chinese, English, Spanish, Mayan, and even Amish influences.
