Encounter Paradise in Belize
Belize offers travelers an unmissable opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds when it comes to relaxing on a dreamy beach and venturing into the mountains. With flights just under seven hours, it’s arguably a crime to say no to the alabaster sands of Ambergris Caye for snorkeling, surfing, or diving.
This haven is fondly called “paradise island,” and rightfully so – home to the second largest reef system in the world, it’s a living postcard where you can sip on a fruit garnished drink without a worry in the world. If you’ve had enough beach in your system to last you the summer, make it a point to visit the Cayo District of western Belize. The region borders the Maya El Petén and shows off the off Belize’s rolling pinelands, alluring rainforests, Maya ruins, and even cattle ranches – a combination of the best that Central America has to offer.
