One of the last remaining unspoiled areas on our planet.

See the ancient Maya sites, the tropical rainforests and the beautiful beaches fronting the Caribbean. The birdlife species are abundant. Don’t forget to visit the museums and appreciate the Maya civilization. Expeditions, caving, local culture, beaching Belize has it all.

Belize is English (Kriol), Speaking and an independent state of the Commonwealth (like Australia) with the Queen on the money.

From the border, I took a bus to Belize city, not the capital city, but the country's principal port. It is a small city (nearly 80 000) but it’s a fun, colourful, lively place, with small streets and mad ramshackle buildings. It's safe enough, but take care when out sightseeing in the evening.
Belize city is the main entryway to the Cayes (islands) and diving hot spots such as the blue hole and along the Belize barrier reef (the worlds second largest coral reef). I caught a boat out to Caye Caulker, and spent a few days relaxing, and took a trip to the blue hole to dive.
From here I took a three-day sailing trip south along the reef, fishing for barracuda, snorkelling, diving for conch, drinking rum and spending two nights camping on islands with nothing on them other than a few palm trees. The trip terminated at the coastal town of Placencia. The town has some great beaches and snorkelling and diving spots.
