The most magical place on Earth?
THIS is one laid-back hideaway that should be on your bucket list.
An independent nation since 1981, Belize is home to the most beautiful sinkhole on the planet, cave tubing, underwater treasures and secret beaches.
The Central American country has six districts and 200 offshore cayes (islands) that are easy — and beautiful — to navigate.
Here are 11 experiences that represent the best of Belize.
1. Dive into The Blue Hole
Serious divers must experience The Blue Hole, a 310 metre-wide sinkhole that is home to diverse marine life like hammerhead sharks and expansive underwater vistas. Made famous by a 1970s Jacques Cousteau documentary, this is the world’s largest formation of its kind. Located 88 kilometres east of Belize City, The Blue Hole is 125m deep — it’s not for the faint of heart.
