central coast
Head to the Central Coast for Mayas, monkeys and culture.
Home to the howler monkeys and many rare bird species, Central Belize is perfect for travelers looking to get into the wild.

The Maya temples at Altun Ha are great for birders who want to see feathered friends and check out ancient culture. Belize City is known for architecture from our colonial days; its “Kriol” culture still thrives today. While you’re there, ask a local to teach you a little Kriol. Even though Belize is an English-speaking country, we still speak it in our own way.
