Establishing what to do and where to go in Belize depends significantly on each traveler’s personal preference and interests. On the eastern side of Central America, Belize encapsulates a number of different geographical landscapes within its boundaries. On one side, you are in the beating heart of the jungle, surrounded by colorful wildlife and dense forests. On the other, translucent turquoise waters and picture perfect beaches await.
Belize is home to plenty of beaches and paradisiacal locations, each catering to a different crowd. Budget travelers and young adventurers hoping to socialize with others on their travels will love Caye Caulker -- a tiny little island with a laid back, hipster vibe. The island is only small but filled with ample nightlife options and cute coffee shops and stores. Ambergris Caye is one of the most popular travel destinations in Belize and offers a 15-mile stretch of perfect sandy coasts. The main town of Ambergris Caye, San Pedro is a lovely place to relax by the sea, go snorkeling and enjoy watersports, or even try your hand at fishing before cooking your catch with locals.
Certified divers traveling to Belize will be fascinated by the colorful reefs and spooky vibes of the Blue Hole National Monument. The dive site here is not your usual place for diving and spotting colorful fish. Instead, it is a submarine sink site that is a fascinating and unique to behold. Occasionally, reef sharks float around this area making it even more of an adrenaline-pumping experience for experienced divers.
The best time to visit Belize is between the months of November and April. This is the country's 'dry season' and sees very little rain partnered with clear blue skies and warm sunshine. This is also the most popular time to visit Belize so travelers should aim to book hotels in advance.
