The wonderful thing about Belize is that few people know much about it and even fewer have many expections, so prepare for a feast for your senses and tastebuds! As well as being packed with natural wonders, Belize boasts an array of vivacious cultures and mouthwatering cuisines crammed into an area not much larger than Wales. On your travels through this easily accessible English-speaking country you will also hear Kriol, Spanish, Garifuna and Maya spoken by local communities that are warm and welcoming, passionately individual but all proudly Belizean.
From learning about chocolate and traditional ways of life with a Mayan family to trying your hand at Garifuna drumming, each community will immerse you in a world of food, music, dancing and history that is uniquely their own... and that’s before you even adventure into the forested highlands full of horse riding trails, mysterious cave systems, little-visited Mayan ruins, brilliant tropical birds and even watchful jaguars. At the end of it all, the idyllic Caribbean coastline beckons with laidback towns, uninhabited islands and incredible snorkelling on the second largest barrier reef in the world.
