Mayan Ruins Of Belize


Belize’s first and most lasting inhabitants, the Maya, left a rich legacy of art, science and mathematics that continues to unfold and astound us. Much of this ancient knowledge was lost when Spanish conquistadors laid waste to the extensive Maya libraries and administrative centers, but, fortunately, the Maya recorded parts of their history and predictions in stone inscriptions that can be seen today in stelae and the remains of elaborate cities, buildings and temples that survived centuries of jungle encroachment.

  • Belize Barrier Reef

    If scuba, snorkeling, or fishing are your passions, a trip to Belize isn't just another vacation, it's a pilgrimage to the longest and most extensive living coral reef in the western hemisphere, the Belize Barrier Reef. For a close encounter, we suggest to book Hotel Stays in Ambergris Caye, Turneffe Islands or Cayo Espanto. Although located at a relatively longer distance, day trips to visit the Belize Barrier Reef are also available from Placencia Beach, Hopkins Beach or Punta Gorda Hotels.

  • Beaches and Cayes of Belize

    Thanks to a magnificent coastline hugging the Caribbean Sea and more than 200 offshore islands — at least 20 of which are inhabited — Belize has golden and white-sand beaches that are a boat or plane ride away from Belize City. Many of these beaches remain a well-kept secret, discovered only by dive enthusiasts and anglers who venture off the beaten track. Here are our recommendations for the best beaches to visit in Belize.

  • Caves and Falls of Belize

    Belize's most popular Caves and Falls are found around the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, however for a price-wise tours selection, we recommend Cave Tubing and River Kayaking from San Ignacio instead. If you are not planning to stay in either area; adventure tours can also be booked from Placencia Beach, Hopkins Beach or even from San Pedro/Ambergris Caye, although cost of transportation will reflect in your tour price. A more secluded experience to discover Belize's Caves and Falls can be enjoyed from Punta Gorda in the Toledo District/Southern Belize. To select your activities, customize your trip from any of our suggested itineraries and click on 'activities' or 'things to do'.
