This summer, come visit Belize and enjoy one of the world's most amazing and beautiful countries. Whether it's snorkeling and swimming in the crystal clear waters of a Caribbean reef or swinging through the jungle on a series of zip lines, Belize has something for every taste, desire, and budget.
On your summer vacation in Belize, be sure not to miss these exciting adventures:
Visiting the (Truly) Wild West
Cayo District, the westernmost "state" in Belize, doesn't have many cows or cowboys, but it is known as the Wild West due to the unbelievable diversity of gorgeous wildlife and scenery found there. Starting from the eco-tourism capital of the region, San Ignacio Town, visitors can picnic under a waterfall, hike through misty mountains, canoe down a pristine jungle river, or trek through the jungle in search of parrots, toucans, monkeys, giant iguanas, and jaguars.
The Islands, Mon
Belize has hundreds of Caribbean islands that look like postcard pictures of paradise. Whether you choose to visit just one island or partake in the eminently enjoyable sport known as island hopping, you'll find white sands, palm trees swaying in a tropical breeze, and crystal clear water teeming with fish, flora, sea turtles, dolphins, sharks, and rays that is ideal for snorkeling, fishing, and scuba diving. With seven large marine reserves and national parks to choose from, you'll never run out of amazing things to see and do on the islands of Belize.
Learn About the Maya
For thousands of years, the advanced civilization of the Maya built enormous pyramids, soaring temples, and precise astronomical observatories up and down the length of Belize. Today, visitors can explore some of these ancient wonders, including the colossal Xunantunich (still bigger than any modern city in Belize), the huge buildings of Altun Ha (taller than all other man-made structures in the country), and the bloody stones of Lamanai where the Maya fought the Spanish.

Cahal Pech Village Resort is located just a short distance from San Ignacio Town. With lovely thatched roof accommodations, a gourmet restaurant, and screened-in dining porch overlooking the Belize River Valley, the Cahal Pech Village Resort is the ideal place to enjoy an unforgettable summer vacation in Belize.
