English-speaking Belize is unique - a cocktail of Creole, British colonial, indigenous Mayan, Mennonite and Spanish cultures.  It is a tiny country - a little larger than Wales – and this makes it very easy to sample its natural and cultural attractions in a short space of time. The coast is unmistakably Caribbean: silky white sand beaches and coral atolls, swaying palm trees, turquoise seas, laidback people, pulsating reggae rhythms and rum punch. 

Belize has the world’s second largest barrier reef and the undersea world here is a theatre of exotic fish and a plethora of other marine species living among the coral. Behind the coast in the backcountry there are forested highlands, such as the beautiful Mountain Pine Ridge and verdant jungle around Chaa Creek. Awaiting exploration are rivers, mysterious caves and riding trails.  Wildlife is ebullient throughout the country, with hundreds of species of bird and even watchful jaguars inhabiting the woodland. Belize also has numerous fascinating Mayan archaeological sites such as Xunantunich and Lamanai, formerly concealed in dense jungle.

Our insider tips for Belize

Snorkelling on the barrier reef from your base on Ambergris Caye. The coral wonderworld is less than a kilometre off the shore at the pleasant little fishing town San Pedro.

Actually spotting a jaguar in the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary. The chances are always slim (though better than elsewhere) because this magnificent animal is always wary and conceals himself in the leafy tropical forest. But what a result if it happens!

Exploring the caves and rivers around Mountain Pine Ridge by canoe or kayak. You might prefer to discover the lovely highland region from the seat of a car or mountain bike: the choice is yours!

What our experts say

English-speaking, Caribbean-flavoured Belize isn’t part of Latin America, but is no less beguiling for that.  There’s a Regent Street among the wobbly wooden houses-on-stilts of Belize City; a transport company called Batty Bus; exotic, stylish hotels inspired by their owner Francis Ford Coppola; virtually unexplored Mayan ruins stifled by rainforest and some of the best dive sites in the world. Not to mention coral islands with sugary beaches sheltering divine plantation house resorts. I find something new and quirky every time I go back there....
