The same turquoise waters that lure tourists to Caribbean destinations slosh around Belize's island chain. But tiny Belize has a major advantage in reeling in the holidaymakers - spectacular Maya ruins tucked away in lush jungle. The nation is home to more prehistoric buildings than modern-day ones, according to its Institute of Archaeology.
That ancient appeal draws in backpackers eager for adventure as well as divers ready to explore its bustling reefs or its famed Blue Hole. Belize has all the ingredients for a surf and turf vacation - at least for those who don't mind the odd giant cockroach or neon-green frog that may invade their jungle dwellings.
And indeed Belize is the perfect surf and turf destination and offers something for everyone.
If you are into diving or snorkeling, Belize has the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere, and if you are into ancient cultures or ecotourism, Belize has an abundant of ancient Maya cities (some that are not even excavated) and the majority of its rainforests are still intact and under protection. You better Belize it!
And there is so much to discover in Belize, the most eclectic and diverse ecotourism destination in Central America and Caribbean.
Belize offers a variety of experiences guaranteed to meet every traveler’s idea of the ultimate vacation and is the ideal choice for families, couples, and nature lovers as well as discerning travelers looking for rich eco experience coupled with comfortable accommodations, delicious meals and thrilling adventures.
