Living in the shadows of her cumbersome Mexican neighbour, what Belize lacks in size and international recognition, it makes up for in natural wonders, bio-diversity and that perfect combination of Central American heritage with unmistakable Caribbean flair.
This 13-day journey through Belize packs a punch and is guaranteed to leave you amazed by this country’s flattering resume: from the cool and dark caves of the Cayo District, to the steamy jungle that is home to the elusive jaguar in the Orange Walk, and the crystal-clear waters that shelter the Meso-American barrier reef, Belize – former British Honduras – is atop the list of all nature and wildlife enthusiasts. Not only does this itinerary feature birdlife, mammals and underwater wonders, it also covers key sites of ancient Mayan civilisation as well as a glimpse into the laid-back everyday life of the Cayes.
