Things to do in  Belize

Welcome to Belize

Belize combines the best of both the Caribbean and Central America, but boasts a culture entirely its own. Guided tours and day trips help you navigate ancient Mayan history at sites such as Caracol and Xunantunich; explore action-packed jungles, particularly in the southernmost Toledo District; and dive into marine wonderlands off the coasts of both the mainland, Caye Caulker, and Ambergris Caye. For more adventure, take a dip in the Blue Hole, zipline over a rain forest canopy, or visit the Belize Barrier Reef—it's second in size only to Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

Hol Chan Marine Reserve

star-5913
Around 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) south of the shores of Ambergris Caye, Hol Chan Marine Reserve is the most-visited snorkeling and diving area in Belize.

Xunantunich

Xunantunich

star-5454
Overlooking the beautiful Mopan River from a hilltop, the ruins at Xunantunich are some of the most visited Maya sites in the world. Located in the Cayo region, Xunantunich—which means “stone woman” in Mayan—dates back to the Classic Era, around 200–900. The complex comprises about 25 temples and palaces.More

Actun Tunichil Muknal

Actun Tunichil Muknal

star-5532
Actun Tunichil Muknal (Cave of the Stone Sepulchre) in the Cayo district of Belize is a popular excursion destination, just outside of San Ignacio. Visitors experience an Indiana Jones-type adventure where they wade through the cave’s tunnels and passageways lined with stalactites and stalagmites.More
#4
Caye Caulker

Caye Caulker

star-4.5772
Ruled by the motto,go slow, Belize’s Caye Caulker is a relaxed Caribbean island famous for its turquoise waters and manatee population—a lack of cars adds to the sense of tranquility. Explore the surrounding coral reefs by snorkeling or scuba diving, or just sip rum cocktails on its sun-soaked docks.More
#5
Rio Frio Cave

Rio Frio Cave

star-5109
A yawning, 65-foot (20-meter) chasm in the heart of Belize’s Mountain Pine Ridge, the Rio Frio Cave welcomes exploration with the largest cave mouth in the country. Light filters in from both ends, illuminating an underground river, limestone formations, and dripping stalactites.More
#6
Lamanai

Lamanai

star-5125
Meaning "submerged crocodile" in Yucatan Mayan, Lamanai is perhaps the most mysterious Maya site in Belize, because it is not yet completely uncovered. See history in the making as you visit the excavation site, where some temples still remain buried underground. Exposed structures that rise from the jungle floor offer plenty to explore.More
#7
Shark Ray Alley

Shark Ray Alley

star-4.5723
Part of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Shark Ray Alley is home to a multitude of 6-foot (1.8-meter) nurse sharks and stingrays with 4-foot (1.2-meter) wingspans. Over the years, fishers went to the site to clean out their catch—eventually, nurse sharks and stingrays started gathering in search of the boats and their daily treats.More
#8
Tikal National Park (Parque Nacional Tikal)

Tikal National Park (Parque Nacional Tikal)

star-5385
Once a powerful seat of the Mayan empire, the Tikal ruins are now the most famous archeological site in Guatemala and one of the most-visited sets of Mayan ruins in all of Latin America. The UNESCO World Heritage Site, consisting of temples, plazas, and pyramids, was first settled around 700 BC, and modern visitors still get swept away by their beauty and powerful aura.More
#9
San Pedro

San Pedro

star-573
San Pedro Town is Ambergris Caye's main and only town. This is where the bulk of the island’s eateries, shops, nightlife, and businesses are located. The beach here is a sandy sidewalk at best, but the water and views are still beautiful, and numerous docks dotting the shoreline provide ample swimming opportunities. It also serves as a popular departure spot for dive trips.More
#10
Altun Ha

Altun Ha

star-527
Altun Ha, site of the ruins of an ancient Mayan city, covers about 3 square miles (8 square kilometers) of Belizean countryside. The central area has more than 500 historic structures, mostly built during the Maya Classic era (AD 200 to 900). Join a private or group tour to learn how the city’s 10,000 inhabitants lived.More

Private Altun Ha Maya Ruin & Cave Tubing Adventure From Belize City
The trip to the ruins was somewhat interesting to see something that old, but to be honest I thought there would be more there to actually see; the whole time at the ruins was maybe a half hour, we walked around, climbed up one, took some pictures, and then were off to the next site.
