Belize

(0 votes)

Belize is home to second largest barrier reef in the world (the largest is near Australia). This unique geography provides world class watersport and outdoor adventure opportunities for visitors to this small Central American country. Known for its great diving, Jacques Cousteau called the Great Blue Hole one of the “top 10 diving sites in the world”.

 

As a biodiversity hotspot and Belize have many jungles, wildlife reserves, a large variety of different species of flora and fauna and the largest cave system in Central America. On the coast, there is a swampy coastal plain with mangrove swamps. In the south and interior there are hills and low mountains and most of the land is undeveloped and is forested with hardwoods.

There is plenty of archeological evidence that dates back to the Maya civilization around 1500 B.C.E. waiting to be explored.

Since full independence was achieved in 1981, the country has grown into a great melting pot of cultures resulting in one of the happiest and most peaceful countries in the region and a widespread reputation as one of the world’s friendliest tourist destinations.

From the large submarine sinkhole, 43 miles from the mainland you can immerse yourself in the crystal-clear blue water that allows you to see stalactites, stalagmites and sharks, lots of sharks. This is truly a one-of-a-kind diving experience.

See for yourself.

New Things To Do

  • Aquariums

    Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

  • Cross Country Skiing

    Cross country skiing began thousands of years ago as a means of transportation and is still used for that purpose today.
