6 Musts When Visiting Belize!

 | 

Although Belize is a small country, it has a lot of things to do and see, making it impossible to see them all in one go. If you're coming to Belize, here are six activities you shouldn't miss:

1 – Go Bird Watching at Caves Branch Jungle Lodge

Located in the heart of the lush Belizean jungle, Caves Branch is the unofficial capital of bird country as more than 200 bird species have been recorded in the vicinity of the property in less than 24 hours. Your birding tours and adventures at this Belize Jungle Lodge are guaranteed to be AWESOME!

2 – Scuba Dive or Snorkel the Belize Barrier Reef

The Belize Barrier Reef is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to one of the most eco-diverse marine systems on the planet. The reef spans 185 miles of the country's coastline and is the largest reef system in the Northern and Western Hemisphere. The turquoise waters of the Caribbean and abundance of marine life make the reef an ideal place to enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving.

3 – Visit an Ancient Maya City Like Xunantunich or Caracol

Lost for hundreds of years in the thick jungle, some of the ancient Maya culture's greatest cities have only been rediscovered in the past few decades. Vast cities like Xunantunich and Caracol were once home to hundreds of thousands of people who worshipped at the colossal temples and pyramids that still dominate the skyline of modern Belize.

4 – Explore a Sacred Ancient Cave Like ATM

The ancient Maya believed that the caves of Belize were sacred gateways to the worlds of the gods. One such cave is Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM), rated by the Discovery Channel and National Geographic as the number one sacred cave in the world. The cave is home to the remains of more than a dozen people, including children, who were sacrificed to the fearsome gods of the ancient Maya.

5 – Spend Time on the Beach

Belize has some of the most spectacular beaches in the world. Top destinations with clear water and sugar sand beaches include Placencia and Hopkins on the mainland and the islands of Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye.

6 – Eat Like a Local

If you're adventurous, be sure to try Belizean specialties such as seaweed shakes, hudut (a coconut and fish stew), or gibnut meat (also known as the "royal rat"). For more conventional fare, Belize is a great place to eat fresh-caught seafood, rum cocktails, and hearty Caribbean classics such as rice and beans.

If you'd like to experience all of the above adventures (and more!), be sure to book a Belize Jungle and Beach Vacation with Caves Branch Jungle Lodge today. Caves Branch has a number of fun-filled itineraries that are sure to make for an unforgettable vacation in Belize.
