Reading blogs, marveling at amazing photographs, and seeing immersive videos of travelers in Belize can create a wonderful picture of all of the amazing attractions on offer in the country.

Belize Wildlife

Vacation in Belize

With just 360,000 people scattered around a country approximately the same size as Vermont, it’s no surprise that wildlife thrives in Belize. Ranging from friendly manatees and playful dolphins offshore to howling monkeys and some of the last indigenous big cats on the mainland, Belize is one of the most biodiverse countries on the planet.

Belize Beaches

Sure, every country boasts of beaches, including popular tourist hotspots like Florida, but the beaches in Belize are truly spectacular. With more than 200 miles of coastline on the Caribbean, Belize is blessed with uncrowded stretches of pure white sand, to say nothing of the hundreds of offshore islands that are the perfect place to play castaway for a day.

Ease of Travel

Now that Belize is becoming more popular, major airlines like American, United, Delta, and Southwest, Sun Country, Westjet, Air Canada and Aero Mexico offer non-stop flights from major cities, making it easy and affordable to get to Belize in just 3-5 hours. And once you’re in the country, getting around is easy thanks to affordable vehicle rentals, shuttle services, and a strategic network of boat operators.

Diving and Snorkeling

First-time visitors often compare snorkeling and diving in Belize to jumping into a living aquarium. Coral reefs constitute just a tiny fraction of the ocean’s surface but are home to a staggering 25% of all marine flora and fauna. The Belize Barrier Reef is the perfect place to see rays, sharks, fish, sea turtles, dolphins, manatees, and even whale sharks (the largest fish species on the planet) up close and personal.

The Food
