I’m sorry if I’m offending anyone. Especially Belize natives. But you better belize that in order for me to give this place a recommendation, I’ll need a do over. There wasn’t much to do. I was looking for more of a vibe.
If you read my Honduras post, you know that I cut my Belize trip short. I attached a pic of the place I left on. LOL
If I ever decide to go again, I’ll lower my expectations and plan for more relaxation and less adventure. Underwater stuff was the thing. But since it’s not MY thing, it was a big booooooo for me.
Here are some facts about Belize:
Belize is a country stretching between Central American jungles and the Caribbean Sea.
- Belize Barrier Reef, the second-largest in the world, is a shelter for more than 100 types of coral and some 500 species of tropical fish, making this country a paradise for scuba divers and snorkelers. They can also investigate underwater caves and the famous Blue Hole.
- Underwater sports are just the tip of the iceberg – you can choose between kayaking, windsurfing, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming, fishing, or lazing in a hammock.
- National parks and wildlife sanctuaries are home to many different species – another paradise for nature lovers.
- One of the world's most mysterious civilizations, the ancient Maya left their traces in many archaeological sites in the Cayo District and Toledo's Deep South.
- Visitors should certainly try the local food - Rice and Beans, Stew(ed) Chicken, Chimole, Salbutes, Ceviche, and many other tasty dishes. I didn’t like the Ceviche at all.
- The American dollar is widely accepted but prices are usually expressed in Belize dollars.
- If you are going, you should visit Belize during the dry season, which is between late November and mid-April.
