Belize is a small country just a short flight away from the United States, but don't let its size fool you. From the moment you arrive, you'll realize what a special and magical place Belize is.
With more than half its territory set aside as a national park, conservation area, or wildlife refuge, Belize's pristine nature is its greatest asset. Add in the fact that Belize was once the epicenter of the ancient Maya culture, with pyramids, palaces, and sacred caves dotting the landscape, and it's easy to see why the country is such a popular destination.
Luxury in Belize means many things. Much of the country's wealth is not measured in dollars but in the rich diversity of its plants and animals. More than 500 species of birds can be spotted in Belize along with exotic wildlife such as manatees, sharks, dolphins, sea turtles, parrots, macaws, giant iguanas, and even jaguars.
The mainland of Belize offers a highly diverse geography ranging from broadleaf forests at higher altitudes to waterfalls, fertile valleys, rainforest, and thick jungle at lower elevations. Belize also has more than 200 miles of Caribbean coastline with gorgeous, white sand beaches.
If that weren't enough, Belize is also home to a vast archipelago of islands strung along the expanse of the largest coral reef system in the western hemisphere. With clear waters and white seafloors providing visibility up to 60 meters (200 feet), it's easy to see why Belize is such a popular destination for snorkeling, fishing, and scuba diving. Other popular activities on the reef include sea kayaking, windsurfing, and sailing.
But there is also luxury to be found in Belize of the classical kind. Five-star resorts on both the mainland and offshore islands provide unparalleled customer service, pampering, and comfort. Gourmet restaurants serve up a mouthwatering array of fresh-caught seafood, local cuisine, and international favorites. And few experiences can compare to retreating to a luxury resort after a fun-filled day enjoying the sights and sounds of Belize.
