Belize Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 52%, Belize provides the perfect place for PlanetHoppers! who want to "ease" into the many splendors of Latin America. Without a doubt, the top attraction is the Belize barrier reef system, which offers some of the best diving and snorkeling options to be found anywhere in the world. There are also a variety of sailing options through the Northern Cayes, which is the perfect way to travel between the most popular diving and snorkeling locations. Finally, after you're completely waterlogged, the rainforests of the interior beckon. For such a relatively small country, the choices are enough to satisfy most PlanetHoppers! Some of these include exploring the Mayan ruins of El Caracol, canoeing into extensive cave systems such as Barton Creek Cave, and making a river journey to Rio Bravo Conservation Area - one of Central America's coolest reserves, where you can view many of the region's most unique wildlife. But perhaps the best thing is that you can experience all of these things to the hypnotic percussion beat of the country's native Garifuna people. You'll still be swaying to the rhythm days after returning home.
