Belize has an amazing coral barrier reef with multicolored coral, bright turquoise water, white sand pirate islands and the famous Blue Hole: a perfect dark blue circular sinkhole. It has a sensational mix of lush jungle, extraordinary flora and fauna and stunning ancient Mayan cities. The local culture is relaxed and laid-back and it is the perfect destination for nature lovers and adventure seekers, with plenty of sports and activities available.
The Blue Hole is a giant submarine sinkhole, nestled in the “Lighthouse reef”. It was formed 10.000 years ago from the collapse of a massive underwater cave, which created a perfect deep blue circle in the middle of the reef. A breathtakingly steep dive leads you to various caves with interesting geological formations, coral and bull sharks.
Ambergris Caye is the largest of the 150 islands scattered alongside the coral reef of Belize. It has white sand beaches, brilliant turquoise waters, and a relaxed atmosphere. In the 17th century, the island was used to collect the precious “ambre gris” used in the production of perfumes, and was a hideout for numerous French, British and Dutch pirates.
Caracol & Mountain Pine Ridge
Caracol is the largest pre-Columbian city of Belize. It was founded in the 7th century BC and after a victorious war against the city of Tikal in the 6th century AD, Caracol became the most powerful city of the Mayan lowlands. There are still forty buildings and beautiful steles covered in hieroglyphic sculptures on the site. Caracol is located just across the beautiful natural reserve of Mountain Pine Ridge.
Actun Tunichil Muknal
Actun Tunichil Muknal is a Mayan archaeological cave network. After swimming in the underground river and natural pools and spelunking your way through limestone rock formation, you will reach the underground chambers with spectacular geological formations and Mayan ceremonial artifacts and skeletons. This is a once in a lifetime experience for thrill-seeking adventurers!
Cave tubing lets you to float down the rivers of the Sibun reserve which have dug an impressive network of caves in its limestone hills. The ancient Mayans considered these caves sacred, as they were believed to be one of the entrances to the underground world. The coolness of the river is a delight, especially after a hike in the heat of the tropical forest to the starting point of the activity.
