Belize: Underwater Beauty Meets Jungle Paradise

Whether traveling on a honeymoon or simply for adventure, Belize is truly one of those countries that offer it all. Where else can you start your day swimming with a hawksbill turtle and a few spotted eagle rays, and then follow up with a challenging jungle hike and a dip in a cascading waterfall. As locals will tell you “In Belize, You Better Belize It”!

The Sea

Boasting some of the best diving in the world the Belize Barrier Reef is the second longest in the world Belize’s underwater world is a spectacle of colors. Beneath the translucent blue seas, divers and snorkelers alike are greeted with a kaleidoscope of bright corals surrounded with myriad species of fish. If weather permits, ask your captain to take you to the Blue Hole, a sink hole surrounded by an incredible reef.

The Jungle

Belize’s jungle is a nature lover’s seventh heaven. With a vast network of national parks and wildlife refuges such as the Cockscomb Wildlife Sanctuary and the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, inland Belize offers countless opportunities for bird and wildlife watching, hiking, waterfall rappelling, kayaking, zip-lining and even the unusual but very fun cave-tubing.

The Culture

Surrounded by Spanish-speaking countries, Belize represents a mosaic of culture that blends together in perfect harmony. In the span of a day, you will have interesting encounters with Mayans, Mestizos, Garifunas, Creoles, Mennonite and more. Spend some time learning the intricate ways of life of each Belizean sub-nation. Obviously with such a mix of culture stems great food. In Hopkins Bay, try stew chicken with vegetable rice or red snapper served with fresh mango paste. If you are a foodie, head out to Fuego in San Ignacio to feast on delectable cinnamon fried chicken glazed over with cashew sauce. The combination is memorable.
