Coming to Belize with your family but not sure what kind of activities will suit your happy gang? We've compiled this great list of 10 family-friendly tours and activities that you can all enjoy together.
Nothing grabs the attention like standing at the foot of a 2,000-year-old pyramid deep in the jungle. And there's lots of great history to learn for older kids, too.
Even if you're not strong swimmers, your family can still enjoy some snorkeling. Belize is one of the best places in the world to enjoy snorkeling thanks to crystal clear waters that are teeming with a rainbow of exotic marine life.
The rainforests and jungles of Belize are some of the most ecologically diverse habitats in the world. Everywhere you look, you'll see something amazing, including delicate orchids, giant iguanas, or even troops of black howler monkeys high up in the treetops.
4 – Belize Cultures
Belize is home to six different cultures, including the Garifuna people, the only African population in the New World that was never enslaved. You can also visit Creole, Maya, and Mennonite villages while in Belize.
5 – Belize Beaches
Need we say more? Swimming, sunning, relaxing in a hammock, or enjoying an old-fashioned beach barbecue of fresh-caught lobster, conch, and fish.
6 – Belize Butterfly Farms
What is a butterfly farm, you ask? Well, Belize's environment is perfect for butterflies, so these "farms" raise butterflies to be sent to other countries that have, unfortunately, lost much of their butterfly population due to pollution and other reasons.
Whether it's an inner tube, canoe, kayak, dory, or rowboat, Belize is the perfect place to enjoy some watercraft adventures.
Kids really do seem to form instant connections with horses, which is great because horses love kids, too. By horseback, your family can explore the jungle from a completely unique perspective.
Zip lining certainly feels like a scary, dangerous activity, but it's actually very safe. Zip lining is the sport of sailing through the jungle along a series of steel cables. What a thrill!
10 – Belize Zoo
Not really a zoo in the traditional sense, the Belize Zoo is an animal rescue and rehabilitation center. It's the perfect place to let young kids get up close and personal with some of the amazing birds and animals that live in Belize.
