Renowned for its beautiful beaches, turquoise sea, rainforest national parks and Mayan ruins — plus gorgeous warm and sunny weather throughout the winter — Belize is perfectly posed to make your travel bucket list.

And that’s just the beginning.

One of the hidden gems of Central America, the country’s 250-mile-long coastline boast the world´s second largest coral reef (after that great one in Australia). The Cayes archipelago in the Caribbean Sea consist of over 200 large and small islands and coral atolls, protecting 70 different species of corals and more than 400 species of fish.

In the northwest, along the border with Guatemala and Mexico, wild and lush rainforests dominate the landscape. Exotic wildlife, mystical rivers and Mayan ruins await in the jungle lodges of Orange Walk and Lamanai.

Further inland are pristine rainforest mountain ranges which visitors can experience by canoeing down the Macal River and taking a dip in the Rio Frio and its natural swimming pools. Unmissable highlights include the Mayan ruins of Xuantunich and Caracol.

If you seek to relax in remote calm, choose the beaches in the South: Dangriga and Placencia are beautiful, remote locations well off the beaten path.

Whether you want to dive the famous Blue Hole, swim among the denizens of the deep in the Shark and Ray Alley, or visit the fascinating Mayan sites in the rainforest, Travel Pioneers can design the perfect Belize itinerary for families, honeymoon couples, groups, or independent travelers.
