Pint-sized Belize is packed with islands, adventure and culture and sits on the eastern coast of Central America. Find dense jungle to the west and Caribbean sea shorelines to the east. Offshore, the massive Belize Barrier Reef, dotted with hundreds of low-lying islands called cayes, hosts rich marine life. Belize’s jungle areas are home to many Mayan ruins and the barrier reef is the second largest in the world, after Australia’s. Find more than 100 types of coral and over 500 species of tropical fish. This is a paradise for snorkelers and scuba divers.
