Bright lights. The Capital.

Belmopan

Take a walk through Market Square for shops and local dining. Independence Plaza is home to the prime minister's offices and the National Assembly Building, which was designed to resemble a Maya temple.

When you’re done with city adventures, go explore Guanacaste National Park for a hike. If you're into cave-tubing, zip-lining or would be satisfied with a dip into the popular "Blue Hole," try out Caves Branch! Then, take a drive on the Hummingbird Highway, where there’s something new and amazing around every turn.
