The world's a big place, and there's only so much time to soak it all in. But no matter what metric you're using to measure the value of destinations, everyone needs to visit Belize once in their lifetime. This Caribbean country has a whole lot to offer, but there's no better time than now to travel. Here are the reasons why you should go ahead and book your flight to Belize.
A Cradle of Civilization
A lot of visitors to Belize head straight to the beach and never leave. And while that's a perfectly valid way to experience your vacation, Belize's Cayo District in the west was once one of the most influential regions in the times of the Maya Empire. A surprising amount of building and artifacts remain from that time, and you could spend a long time simple exploring ruins with the town of San Ignacio as your base camp.
A Safe Place to Recuperate From Life
Things tend to move slower in Belize, but that doesn't mean that they don't take the health of visitors seriously. As many nations struggled with travel and quarantining restrictions during the Coronavirus pandemic, Belize took responsible steps and rolled out an exhaustive public health plan for the "Tourist Corridor". Thanks to that diligence, Belize offers a safe refuge from the virus and the news.
Adventures For Any Intensity Level
Whether you're looking to go zip lining through the dense jungles of inland Belize or tubing through sacred caves, there are plenty of excursions here that you'd be hard pressed to experience anywhere else. Attractions like the world's second largest barrier reef offer serious adventures for expert divers along with more laid-back alternatives like snorkeling, fishing, and cruises. Or you can enjoy the interior with a leisurely horseback ride through the rainforest.
A Wealth of Ecological Diversity
If you're a fan of wildlife, you'll find a lot to love here. While the Belize Barrier Reef is a standout attraction thanks to its wealth of marine life, Belize is also a revered destination for birdwatchers who can appreciate different avian populations depending on the season. The people of Belize are protective about preserving the natural beauty of their home, but they offer plenty of options to immerse yourself in the local wildlife. That could mean meeting the tropical animals at the Belize Zoo, checking out the Farmer’s Market in downtown San Ignacio, or canoeing down the meandering Macal River.
