Beautiful Belize covers just 25,000 square kilometres, yet contains the world’s second largest barrier reef in the world, some of the best beaches in the Caribbean and world class diving and snorkelling. With such an emphasis on its coastline, Belize’s interior is often overlooked- those who venture inland discover pristine forests and impressive Mayan archaeological sites.
Great Blue Hole
The Great Blue Hole is a world-class destination for recreational scuba divers attracted by the opportunity to dive in crystal-clear waters and see myriad species of marine life including tropical fish and spectacular coral formations.
This region is Belize’s largest, encompassing rain forests on rugged mountain ridges, rolling farmland covered in orchards, gushing rivers and hidden Maya treasures.
Orange Walk District
Contains much of the county’s deep forest and a visit to one of the fabulous jungle lodges is a great way to discover the unique flora and fauna in the area. Over 40% of Belize is protected, creating a safe haven for the land and marine creatures that inhabit the country.
For those seeking sun, sand and crystalline waters look no further then Ambergris Caye, the largest of the Belize Cayes. Ambergris runs parallel to the barrier reef and is a great jumping off point for snorkelling and diving trips. Don’t miss the chance to snorkel with harmless nurse sharks and southern sting-rays at Shark Ray Alley!
