List of Tourist Attractions in Belize
Belize shares its idyllic climate and beautiful appearance with other Caribbean nations. But Belize has unique qualities to offer. For one thing, Belize is the only country in the region to have English as its official language!
Belize is a country which contains a wide range of cultures: Spanish speaking central Americans, Black Caribs from the south of the country and even German speaking Mennonites call Belize home! As a result, there are many exciting cultural experiences to be had.
Within Belize there are attractions ranging from lush jungles rich in exotic animals, as well as deep sea fishing and diving, snorkelling and visiting the Mayan ruins remaining from the times of the Mayan Empire.
The Mayan ruins include some of the oldest remains of the pre-Columbian Mayan people, and some of the most important, including Caracol and Lamanai.
There’s Belize city, too, where you can experience modern city life in a location that’s convenient for the salt marshes and jungles, the mayan ruins and the water taxis, speedboats that will take you to Puerta Cortes, Puerto Barrio and the islands Caye Caulker and San Pedro that like off the coast. Water taxis will take you to Mexico for the day too.
Belize’s Cay district is characterized by limestone hills underlaid by a network of underground rivers. As a result, there are networks of caves and caverns under the area that have been used by smugglers and by the government at various times. They’re still there, and guides in the area are usually trained in both the geology and the mythology of the caves, and will be glad to show the caves off to you.
