Belize has a captivating combination of cultures and landscapes; and it is a place that fully embraces its Central American and Caribbean roots, celebrates its diversity and proudly boasts its spectacular natural beauty. This attitude also entails the unique and unconditional support of the local culture and entrepreneurial spirit.
Where to go?
100 kilometers from the coast of Belize City, in the center of the Lighthouse reef, we find the Great Blue Hole. It is a large vertical cave 300 meters in diameter and 125 meters deep, which makes it the largest natural formation of its kind in the world, earning it a place on the list of places that are World Heritage Sites of the Unesco, and number one on our list of places to see in Belize.
In the Orange Walk district, in northern Belize, we find Lamanai, a Mayan archaeological site of great importance whose name, in Yucatec Mayan, means “Submerged Crocodile”. Its main attraction is a complex of ruins and temples that is located on top of the west cliff of the New River Lagoon, and is immersed in a tropical forest, whose fauna and landscapes will make the experience unforgettable.
It is the largest of all the islands that are part of Belize, and is also the most popular tourist destination in the Caribbean nation. It is located near the border with Mexico and has a population of about 20,000 people, mostly concentrated in San Pedro, the most important town on the island.
