Belize tourism: beaches, sun and much more

Belize is a destination we know little about but that doesn't make it any less incredible. It has paradisiacal beaches, where the white sand and the transparent sea combine to form a really beautiful landscape. In addition, you can also observe the traces of the Mayan culture that left constructions that are worth visiting if you are visiting the area. We tell you the most important thing about Belize: tourism, unmissable places and corners that you cannot miss.


Where is Belize
  • Belize is a small country on the border between Central and North America. It borders Mexico to the north, Guatemala to the west and south.
Placencia
  • This beach is one of the most famous and has 25 kilometers of fine sand for walking and relaxing.
  • This destination, being one of the busiest and most frequented in the region, has several restaurants, shops, tourist services and accommodation.

Mayan Beach
  • This beach is located on the Placencia peninsula and is a true paradise. It has wooden piers, hammocks hanging between the palm trees and the perfect place to enjoy seafood. The place is very calm and is one of the best options for sunbathing.

Ambergris Caye
  • This is the largest and most popular of the keys. It is located in the far north of Belize and is almost 40 kilometers long. Like all the islands in the region, it is completely surrounded by turquoise and calm waters.

Caulker Cay
  • This key is relatively small, with a total of 8 kilometers. It is located 34 kilometers from Belize City and south of Ambergris Key. Caulker is one of the quietest places to visit because there are no cars or paved roads, making it a very relaxed destination. It is ideal for snorkeling, diving and other water sports since it is very close to the Barrier Reef.


Dangriga
  • It's the second largest coastal town in Belize. It has a large and busy shopping center, although for tourism it is not a big deal. It is worth visiting if you want to have contact with the locals and get to know the culture well.

Corozal
  • This coastal town is located on the way to Tulum or Chichen Itza, Mexico, so it does not usually have exclusive visits, but occasional ones. It's worth getting to know it if you're just passing through.

Hopkins
  • One of the best known in the region, it is a small village with a large and quiet beach. It also has a freshwater lagoon. More than recommended advice: enjoy the sunsets that nature gives there.

Barrier Reef
  • The Belize Barrier Reef is the second largest in the world after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
  • This impressive barrier reef is only 300 meters off the coast of Belize and stretches 300 kilometers through the Caribbean Sea. The place was declared a World Heritage Site in 1996 and is the most important tourist place in the country, which receives a lot of tourists year after year.
  • There you can see many types of fish of all species, sizes and colors, as well as marine flora. Together with the corals, which are of various colors, it forms an ideal scenario for diving.

Blue Hole
  • One of the most famous places within the barrier reef is the Blue Hole. It is a hole 120 meters deep and 300 meters wide, and one of the favorites for diving lovers. Inside you can see, besides a huge variety of fish and sharks unique to the place, several caves. The water is completely transparent and its dark blue color is due to the great depth. It is undoubtedly an unbeatable experience.
