Why Belize holidays and safaris are truly unique
With the second largest barrier reef system in the world (number one being the Australian Great Barrier Reef) stretching for 300 kilometres off its coastline, several ancient Mayan ruin sites and swathes of dense rainforest located inland, Belize has huge appeal to travellers looking for excitement and adventure and ideal for a luxury holiday.
Add to this a country size that is comparable to Wales making it compact and easy to travel in and a friendly, English speaking population and Belize certainly becomes one of Central America’s most straightforward countries to visit – once you’ve mastered the lilting accent, that is. Perfect for honeymooners, active travellers and those looking for a great combination of reef and rainforest, Belize can be visited independently or combined with Guatemala for a superbly balanced trip including Antigua, Tikal and the Caribbean coast.
Having remained relatively underdeveloped, Belize has established itself as an ecotourism destination, with excellently preserved natural resources to entice its visitors.
