Belize is the perfect destination for the traveler who seeks action and intrigue. Between the Great Blue Hole and the ancient Maya temple at Xunantunich, you’ll find caving, diving, hiking, zip-lining, jungles, exotic animals and much more.
Belizean culture (or kulcha) is a tapestry of beautiful languages, music, traditions and food. It is a unique culture that is made up of many different cultural influences—Maya, Mestizo, Garifuna, Creole, Mennonite and more.
Some of Belize’s favorite attractions and activities are found in our warm waters beyond the coast. There, you can find snorkeling, diving, sailing and fishing—all within and around the largest reef in the Northern Hemisphere.
The ancient history of Belize is a mystery that we continue to unearth. Sites like Lamanai, Xunantunich and Caracol tell us the stories of lost cities and their fascinating inhabitants spanning back thousands of years.
