If you truly want to get off the beaten track, there are few better places to visit than the Belizean jungle. Hiking through the lush greenery offers you the chance to take in the sights and sounds of the native wildlife. If you’re lucky, you might spot a tapir, scarlet macaw, or black howler monkey. When it’s time to take a break, you can take a dip in a jungle river depending on where in the region you are exploring.
The magnificent Belize Barrier Reef is also a must-see on any trip to Belize. It is the second-longest reef on Earth and is home to more than 500 different species of fish. This abundance of wildlife makes it the perfect place to go snorkeling or scuba diving. The aquatic life around the reef is unlike anything you will find elsewhere in the world.
If you would like to extend your time on the water, you can also choose to go sea kayaking. A kayaking journey is a perfect way to explore the hundreds of atolls, cayes, and islands that are spread out across the Belizean landscape. Two popular cayes to explore are Silk Cayes and Laughing Bird Caye in Southern Belize.
Of course, while you are traveling through Belize, you may wish to learn more about its storied past. The best way to do just that is by visiting one of the region’s many Maya temples or sacred caves. At these places, you will be able to get an up-close look at the way this ancient civilization lived and worshipped.
