Reasons to Visit

Enjoy the myriad of islands and atols of the Barrier Reef, ideal for swimming in the turquoise sea or explore the dense rainforest, Mayan sites and Mountain Pine Ridge.

The youngest nation in Central America, Belize has emerged as a versatile and welcoming destination and a popular alternative or complement to Mexico and Guatemala. Outstanding resorts and lodges provide the perfect base from which to complete a daily to-do list that involves strolling along picture-perfect white sandy Caribbean beaches, snorkelling in the the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere or retreating to a gently swaying hammock whilst the aroma of the evening barbeque fills the air. Venture inland to discover thundering waterfalls, steep ravines and rich fauna and flora, as you search for historic Mayan ruins nestled in dense tropical rainforest. It is here that Belize’s past is brought to life, offering a heritage as rich and varied as that of its neighbours over the other side of the dense Central American jungle.

We invite you to browse our selection of Belize holidays below. These itineraries have been carefully planned by our destination specialists to optimise your time and provide a deeper perspective on Belize.

Rainforest & Landscapes

Belize is made up of two distinct regions called Maya Mountains and Northern Lowlands, and which delight both enthusiasts of fine sandy beaches and lovers of luxurious tropical forests.

Barrier Reef

As well as offering magnificent Mayan archaeology and beautiful jungle scenery, Belize is undeniably also one of the very best places to snorkel or scuba dive anywhere on earth.

Mayan Pyramids

In 1500 BC, Mayans settled in Belize and established their urban political centre in Caracol, in the South of the country, said to have supported over 140,000 people.
