How to Plan An Epic Belize Road Trip
Belize Road Trip
Road trip – two simple words that mean so much, an exciting chance to get away from the stresses of your normal life and get lost a bit as you explore an uncharted terrain.
Belize is a bit smaller than the state of Vermont and only has four national highways, but it is truly the best place to enjoy an epic road trip. For instance, along the 53-mile (86-kilometer) length of the Hummingbird Highway, you’ll cross a mountain, drive through a jungle, cross over rivers, drive through enormous citrus orchards, pass through several indigenous villages in order to reach the Caribbean coastline.
Here’s what you need to know about enjoying a road trip in Belize:
Budget Time to Take Photos and Videos
Whether you’re addicted to Instagram or never use social media, you’ll definitely need to budget extra travel time so that you can stop and take photos and videos. In Belize, nature is the main attractions, and you never know when you’ll spot a harpy eagle high in the sky, a flock of scarlet macaws winging their way over the jungle, or a troop of curious howler monkeys that you’ll want to photograph.
Road Signs Are in English
Belize is the only English-speaking country in Central America, so you’ll never have any trouble getting around. Road signs are all in English and distances are measured in miles. And if you get lost, there’s always a friendly local around to point you in the right direction!
You’ll Never Go Hungry
Belize is famous for its street food, and the highways and byways of the country are dotted with tiny, family-run restaurants. These may not look like much from the outside, but they serve up mouthwatering homemade food like Caribbean jerk chicken, tamales, tacos, fry jacks, and hearty plates of beans and rice.
