Things to do in the amazing Belize!

Belize is the only English-speaking country in Central America. It offers a combination of experiences that makes it unique to any destination on the planet. Surrounded by turquoise waters, get to know all the things you can do in this beautiful city; and don’t miss the highest waterfall, the mysterious caves plus the archaeology this country is offering!

Archaeology 010916 archaeology

From Caracol and Cerros to Lamanai and little villages including forest areas along the way, you will find the ancient Maya temples.  There is so mucho archaeology to see that if you want to explore for an afternoon, a day or a week, the ancient Maya sites are well worth it. All sites have interpretive centers and trained guides to show you around.

Caving 010916 caving

There are thousands of caves in Belize. In most caves, you will find extensive stalactite and stalagmite formations and also pottery shards, others have ancient intact pottery and human remains too! Also, you will find natural formations such as an underground waterfalls (Blue Creek, Caves Branch).

You may find over 500 species in Belize from time to time. Some of the best places to see migrant and resident water birds are at Crooked Tree and the seashores of Belize.

 Snorkeling 010916 snorkeling

There are hundreds of snorkeling sites along the Belize Barrier Reef. The good thing is that every snorkel spot is a little different from the other.

From all kinds of fishes, to turtles and some occasional barracuda, there’s a lot going on underwater. Check for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!

Sailing 010916 sailing

There are hidden coral heads that can make the navigation tricky. So if you are thinking of taking this option, the best recommendation is to charter a boat and let the experienced sailors of Belize do the work.

 Horseback Riding 010916 horseback

Popular tours travel through the jungles of the Cayo District and in northern Belize you can find horseback riding at the Mennonite community of Blue Creek.  Both rides you surely won’t forget.

There are more things to do in Belize such as scuba, hiking, canoeing, and kayaking aside from some of the things I wrote. I think this country is extremely exotic and bring a lot of attractions for adventure tourists that may consider this tiny Central American country their next destination!
