Belize

A wonderful mix of Latin tempos, Caribbean charms and Mayan culture, Belize is a destination that punches well above its weight. One of the most attractive destinations in Central America, sandwiched between the glittering waters of the Caribbean and the jungles of Central America, this tiny gem is the only country in the region where Spanish and English are spoken equally.

Blessed with a warm, comfortable climate and a staggeringly rich diversity of natural and cultural highlights, it is a destination that offers so much. One of the world’s top dive destinations, it can boast the second longest barrier reef on the planet and its coastline is sprinkled with beautiful sandy cayes and lagoons.

Historically, Belize’s rich cultural mix is a fusion of Mayan tradition, colonial enterprise and Afro-Caribbean colour, which has produced a country of quite breathtaking contrasts and flavour. Here, ancient archaeological ruins share the landscape with laid-back beach resorts, Mayan villages and bustling modern cities, whilst its rugged interior is home to a stunning abundance of flora and fauna. With a seemingly endless choice of mountains, jungles and cave systems to explore, Belize’s astonishing natural diversity also provides a breathtaking backdrop to an enviable choice of exciting wildlife adventures.
