Keel-Billed Toucan, Belize

Belize Holidays

A country with conservation at its heart. Diligently explore the massive chunks of its dense jungle that have been reserved for the betterment of the local wildlife – home to over 500 types of birds.

Belize is a little smaller than Belgium, a member of the Commonwealth and the only English speaking country in Latin America. 40% of the country is set aside for conservation and much of it is covered by thick jungle supporting over 500 species of birds.

Scattered across the country are some beautifully preserved Mayan temples, while out in the turquoise Caribbean waters you will find a truly magnificent array of marine life with correspondingly superb diving – including the Blue Hole.

Why we like Belize

Green and lush. For a holiday which combines culture, history, wildlife and beach, Belize presents unlimited opportunities, packed as it is with nature reserves, national parks, archaeological ruins and a barrier reef that is the envy of the world. Journey times can be longer than you might expect, but the journey is always part of the enjoyment and the friendliness of the people make up for any shortcomings.

Belize: What to Expect

Culturally Belize has more in common with the Caribbean rather than its Spanish speaking neighbours and while there are some really excellent hotels, lodges and resorts, the infrastructure creaks at the joints. Don’t expect lightning fast service. Life moves at a sedate pace and it is better to join it.
