As a land of unspoiled jungle landscapes and majestic mountains, a week in Belize is simply not enough time to fully explore this magnificent country. If you want to experience the ultimate adventure vacation in Belize, you'll need a plan.
Here are some of the top things you can add to your adventurous Belize itinerary:
Caving in Belize
Caves like Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) are considered sacred spaces because they were once used by ancient Maya priests to perform religious rituals, including human sacrifices.
Visit a Belize Island or Caye
Belize has more than 100 offshore islands, locally referred to as "cayes." These islands are located on the Belize Barrier Reef, the biggest coral reef system in the western hemisphere.
Go Snorkeling or Diving
The crystal clear waters of the Caribbean and an abundance of marine life on the coral reefs of offshore Belize make the country one of the most popular destinations in the world for snorkeling and scuba diving.
The coral reefs and mangrove forests serve an important role as the ocean's nurseries, which is why the waters of Belize are teeming with dozens of species of game fish, including snapper, marlin, bonefish, and tarpon.
Visit Ancient Maya Cities
In the era when Europe was struggling through its Dark Ages, the land that is now Belize was the beating heart of the ancient Maya Empire that once stretched from Mexico all the way down to El Salvador. Today, Belize is home to dozens of magnificent ancient Maya cities brimming with pyramids, palaces, and temples.
Go on a Sailing Tour
Few sights can compare to watching the sun slowing rise over the horizon while aboard a sailing vessel on the Belize Barrier Reef. And, with so many lovely islands to visit, a sailing tour is a great way to experience the beauty and majesty of the reef.
Swim in a Waterfall like Big Rock or Rio on Pools
Belize is home to the tallest waterfalls in Central America, and nothing beats the heat like enjoying a quick dip at the base of waterfalls such as Big Rock and Rio on Pools.
Talk to Locals
Belize is a diverse, multi-cultural society, but everybody speaks English, which makes it very easy to talk with the locals.
