Belize is one of the best countries to visit in the Caribbean and Central America. If you're visiting the country in 2024, here are the top five ways to best experience it:
1. By Exploring the Belize Barrier Reef
It is the second-largest reef worldwide, stretching over 300km. This colorful reef and its abundant marine life make Belize a popular tourist destination. The Belize Barrier Reef is a star attraction, and it's a must-visit if you want to enjoy fishing, diving, sailing, and snorkeling.
2. By Visiting an Ancient Maya City
Here, the ancient Maya sites dot the landscape, and at one time, over 1 million Maya lived in Belize. Some of the top Maya sites are Caracol, Xunantunich, and Cahal Pech. Each of these sites has a wealth of historical information and ancient stories, to help you understand the Maya heritage.
3. By Visiting the San Ignacio Market
Visiting the San Ignacio Market is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in Belizean culture. This market is one of Belize's most popular tourist destinations, thanks to its strategic location near attractions like the Macal River and Cahal Pech Maya Ruins. The best day to visit this market is on Saturday when the farmers and Belizeans from every walk of life head there to buy their weekly fruits and vegetables. It gives you an opportunity to see the country at its best, a perfect blend of cultures and traditions.
4. By Spending Time in Nature
Almost half of Belize is intact, and the rainforests and jungles are a top attraction - you should not miss going birding, zip-lining, hiking, and horseback riding in the jungle. The diverse landscape and tropical climate provide a habitat for various animal species, making it a great place for wildlife viewing.
5. By Visiting a Sacred Ceremonial Cave
There are numerous sacred caves in Belize, and a must-visit is Actun Tunichil Muknal or the ATM Cave. The ATM Cave is best described as the "Indian Jones" experience in Belize. While here, you'll have the opportunity to view remarkable stalactites and stalagmites inside the cave. Everything here, including the Maya pottery, has been untouched for hundreds of years. Take the opportunity to explore this cave as you pass through ancient passageways while sharing stories about Maya gods.
