Belize: The Top Destination To Travel in 2020
If you are looking for an exciting 2020 vacation destination, why not consider Belize? Located in Central America, Belize offers something for everyone, whether it is scuba diving the second largest barrier reef in the world or climbing an ancient Maya temple, there is so much to see and do in Belize in 2020.
What To Do In Belize
Belize offers a wealth of natural beauty with Caribbean Sea shorelines on the eastern part and dense jungles on the western side. The Belize Barrier Reef is offshore, and it’s the second-largest of its kind in the world. Only the Great Barrier Reef in Australia is bigger. This reef and the low-lying islands around it play host to a rich variety of marine life, which makes it a scuba diving paradise. Another unique aspect to Belize waters is the Great Blue Hole. This famous sinkhole is amazing to fly over, but it’s also a fun experience for divers.
Exploring the heart of the ancient Maya civilization is another popular pastime for tourists in Belize. Ancient ruins abound throughout the country. Some of the ruins have only recently been unearthed from the jungle and contain massive pyramids and other buildings. Cave tubing through natural caves in the jungle will take you through the secret remains of Maya ceremonies. Many of these caves served as ceremonial sites for the Maya and include the ancient remnants of human sacrifice.
Visit Placencia In Belize
Another great destination within Belize is the Placencia Peninsula which is located in the Stann Creek District and it is well-known for its pristine, palm-lined beaches. This is where you’ll find the Belize Barrier Reef, which is a popular destination for snorkeling and scuba diving. The Placencia Lagoon is a point of interest between the mainland and the peninsula. It is home to saltwater crocodiles and manatees among other wildlife.
The Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary is also located not far from Placencia Village. This is the world’s first jaguar preserve, and there are tours available to see the mountains, nature trails and waterfalls. Many travelers like to go river tubing through this area. Despite the designation of this area, you’re unlikely to see a jaguar as they mainly come out at night. Other activities to do in Placencia include fishing, swimming with whale sharks, exploring Maya ruins and enjoying delicious local food.
