4 – Explore the Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave

Abandoned before the arrival of European colonists, ATM Cave lay undisturbed for more than 1,000 years. Today, visitors can explore this unique site where ancient Maya priests sacrificed young adults and children in an effort to appease the gods.

5 – Exploring the rich coral reefs and white sand cayes of Lighthouse Atoll

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lighthouse Atoll is home to pristine lagoons and shallow waters brimming with colorful marine life, making it an excellent destination for snorkeling and stand-up paddling.

6 – Visit Hopkins Village

An idyllic fishing village of around 1,500 inhabitants located on the sunny Caribbean coast of southeastern Belize, Hopkins is home to the Garifuna people. Blending traditional African and indigenous Caribbean culture, the Garifuna have preserved their unique foods, language, dance, and music.

7 – Go Fishing

With an abundance of shallow coastal waters, mangrove-lined lagoons, and more than 180 miles of offshore coral reefs, Belize is truly an angler’s paradise.

8. Snorkel and Scuba Dive Belize’s Blue Hole

Formed by the rising waters at the end of the last Ice Age more than 10,000 years ago, the Blue Hole was rated by famed marine biologist Jacques Cousteau as one of the top 10 places to dive on the planet.
