7 Belize Family Vacation Activities For Kids

 | 

Belize is a beautiful, tropical wonderland with plenty to do and see for the entire family.

Here are 7 amazing family vacation activities for kids that you can enjoy in Belize:

The Belize Zoo

Founded in the 1980s to rescue injured and abandoned animals, the Belize Zoo is the country's premier wildlife education center. Kids can learn about and see more than 100 indigenous species at the Belize Zoo including harpy eagles, jaguars, and enormous boa constrictor snakes.

The Caves Branch Botanical Gardens

The largest botanical gardens in the country, the Caves Branch Lodge has a vast collection of beautiful flowering plants, including orchids. With delicate scents and gorgeous colors, the plants of Belize offer a great introduction to the ecology of the Belizean rainforest.

Maya Cermonial Caves

Thanks to the geology of Belize's mainland, there are hundreds of limestone caves scattered across the country. Many of these were used by the ancient Maya priests to conduct sacred rituals, including human sacrifices. Today, kids can get a hands-on history lesson by exploring Maya ceremonial caves such as Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) Cave.

Ancient Maya Cities

Built to last for thousands of years, the vast cities built by the ancient Maya all across Belize were mysteriously abandoned over 1,000 years ago. Today, kids love to pretend to be Indiana Jones, discovering enormous pyramids and stunning palaces located deep in the jungles of Belize.

Snorkeling

The crystal clear, warm waters of the Caribbean make Belize the perfect place to enjoy snorkeling. Belize has hundreds of offshore islands with white sandy beaches and tranquil waters that vast schools of fish, playful dolphins, and large sea turtles call home.

Horseback Riding

More than a third of Belize is set aside as a national park, wildlife refuge, or animal sanctuary, making it the perfect place to explore by horseback. Organized horseback tours let kids see wildlife up close and personal as well as astounding sights like waterfalls, vast forests, and pristine jungles teeming with exotic fauna and flora.

Bird Watching

Even if you've never considered bird watching at home, Belize is the perfect place to see avian species with their spectacularly colorful plumage. More than 900 species of birds have been recorded in Belize, including parrots, macaws, and toucans. Even first-time bird watchers can usually spot more than 50 different species in a single morning!

The best place to stay for families who want to enjoy an unforgettable vacation in Belize is the Caves Branch Lodge. Visit www.cavesbranch.com and start planning your Belize family vacation.
