Handpicked by a Belize Local Expert, we bring you our guide to 'Maya mountains in Belize'.

The mountains cover much of Guatemala, and many of the highest points in the country are actually volcanoes. Volcanoes, many of which can be climbed, rise around several important destinations - these include the Pacaya Volcano near Panama City, Acatenango and Agua near Antigua, and the three volcanoes located along the coasts of the Lake Atitlan The Sierra de los Cuchumatanes, a non-volcanic mountain range that begins near the Mexican border, is the highest mountain range in Central America. Mountain destinations offer travelers a wealth of opportunities to go out and explore. You can go hiking in the middle of forests, climb volcanoes, and go bird watching. In addition, the temperature is usually lower thanks to the higher elevations.
