There’s Nothing Quite Like Belize
A friendly English-speaking country with a colourful history, harmonious multicultural populace and stunningly beautiful, diverse landscapes packed into a country only slightly larger than the US state of New Jersey?
Welcome to Belize!
Now add a wide choice of accommodation options, often with high quality amenities such a full service spas, an increasingly sophisticated dining culture making use of fresh local produce and seafood from pristine Caribbean waters, a selection of exciting activities, tours and excursions, along with a growing emphasis on luxury, and it’s easy to understand why Belize, once relatively unknown to the travelling public, has become one of the world’s most sought after tourism destinations.
With a stunning Caribbean coast and scores of tiny islands sheltered by the world’s second largest barrier reef, to endless tracts of pristine rainforest, with the Maya Mountains, broad savannahs, rolling pasture lands and the unique Mountain Pine Ridge habitat in between, and an equally diverse, welcoming populace comprised of Maya, Creole, Mestizo, Garifuna, European, Asian and other groups, Belize caters to a wide range of interests.
Once visited primarily by scuba divers, archaeologists exploring the many ancient Maya cities and temples, birders and other naturalists, Belize now offers something for everyone, with diving, snorkelling, visiting ancient Maya sites and nature walks, as well as canoeing, horseback riding, zip-lining, cave-tubing, immersive cultural experiences and much more.
With near-perfect weather, an average yearly temperature of 84°F (29°C), and a number of excellent spas, fitness centres and activities, it’s not surprising that Belize also attracts people who are conscious about health and wellbeing.
The country is also enticing some of the world’s top chefs, who are drawn to the endless supply of fresh produce grown year-round in a tropical climate, and the fish, lobsters and abundant seafood found along the vast reef system. By combining local Maya, Creole, Garifuna and Mestizo influences with classic European styles, Belizean cuisine continues to attract worldwide attention.
Whether for memorable vacations, romantic idylls including weddings, honeymoons and second honeymoons, family get-togethers, exhilarating adventures, exquisite relaxation and sublime pampering, more and more travellers are discovering that there really is nothing quite like Belize.
