With an array of stunning islands, a rich culture and thrilling adventures on offer, this small country packs a big punch.
The translucent, warm waters teaming with 100 types of coral and 500 species of tropical fish are what make Belize a real tropical paradise. The barrier reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the second largest after Australia’s and is one of the world’s great natural wonders.
