Belize is welcoming travelers again, with a Tourism Gold Standard program in place designed to keep you safe and recognized as one of the top in the world. See our Health & Safety page for up-to-date details related to COVID-19 vaccinations, testing requirements and everything else you need to know in order to have the Belize vacation of your dreams.
If you really want an up-close and personal look at snakes and butterflies, take a trip to Chaa Creek Natural History Centre. The Centre has a number of jars featuring various pickled species, and a naturalist will guide you through each of them. If jarred insects and reptiles aren’t for you, there’s also a screened-in butterfly breeding center, featuring several species of amazing butterflies, like the Blue Morphos, an electric blue butterfly that resembles jade earrings.
