This is not your typical walk in the park

Protected Areas

There's nothing like being in it. Imagine, hundred-thousand square miles of dense and rich jungles provide habitats for the thriving wildlife community. Or get a close view of the magnificent coral formations and marine life thriving throughout our protected waters!

Belize is a preservation-first destination. Explore its 36% of terrain and 608,740 acres of marine preservation.

It's the beauty of areas, like Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Gladden Spit & Silk Caye Marine Reserve, Chiquibul Forest Reserve, and Golden Stream Corridor Preserve, that makes preservation efforts a top priority for Belize.

It's a pristine experience like no other. We’ve protected them for you to enjoy, so enjoy.
