From magnificent Maya ruins to glorious coral reefs, the tiny country of Belize is rich in wonders both archeological and natural, with a unique cultural mix, a wealth of wildlife, and the treasures of Guatemala close at hand. Whether you’re diving the depths of the Blue Hole, kicking back with a cocktail in San Pedro or trekking through the mangroves of Toledo, use our map of Belize to help you plan your trip.
Swim with the colourful fish of the Barrier Reef just off the island of Caye Caulker; wonder at the ancient city of Tikal, rising from the rainforest; or stay in remote splendour at an eco-conscious jungle lodge before heading to the marvellous Belize zoo, where you’ll have the chance to see Belizean cats and get up close to a toucan or two. Or, time your visit to coincide with the traditional Garifuna festival and share in the celebrations.
