When it comes time to plan the perfect summer vacation, a number of things need to be considered. Most people want to visit the beach, enjoy some swimming, and also sample delicious food. Belize has all of this and more, including a landscape dotted with mysterious ancient pyramids and palaces built thousands of years ago by the advanced Maya civilization.
In Belize, the weather and the climate is very similar to what you’d find in Miami, including golden sand beaches, gentle trade winds, and lovely ocean vistas. But Belize has so much more, including hundreds of offshore islands and a mainland composed of ancient rainforests and lush jungles.
Due to its unusual history as the only British colony in the region, the official language of Belize is English, which makes it very easy to get around or chat with friendly locals. The country’s greatest attraction is its beautiful nature, including jungle rivers, majestic waterfalls, and enormous national parks that are home to a dizzying array of exotic animals like kinkajous, harpy eagles, giant iguanas, and jaguars.
Belize is also popular as an adventure destination. Popular activities include horseback riding, ATV riding, bird watching, and visiting animal sanctuaries. Other activities include cave tubing and visits to local villages to learn more about the traditional foods, music, and crafts of the different cultures that are found in Belize.
Of course, you could come to Belize simply to relax and unwind, enjoying long strolls along the beach, watching the sun rise over the Caribbean, or sitting in a hammock and reading a good book. If a more lively vacation is your cup of tea, there are plenty of street parades, fairs, and festivals to enjoy throughout the year. And Belize is home to some of the best street food in the world, including fresh produce and savory Caribbean and Mexican-influenced cuisine.
