We get asked about Belize a lot. It’s a beautiful little country in Central America, just below Mexico. It’s the only English speaking country in Central America and is definitely more Caribbean than Spanish. We starting going to Belize in 2006 and got our permanent residency in 2012. By that point we were living in San Pedro on the island of Ambergris Caye, La Isla Bonita.
The interior of Belize is lush with mountains and jungle. Lots of sightseeing to do! There are boundless waterfalls and hiking to caves with swimming holes. The refreshing cold water comes from deep within the mountains that border Guatemala….
Zipline through the jungle or jump off old piers into cool refreshing rivers…..
Stop at small local restaurants and enjoy local cuisine….
See lots of little Maya Villages along the way….
Climb one of the many Mayan Ruins……
Or head over to the beach….
Get your diver’s certificate and dive in the worlds second largest coral reef
Go fishing and catch your dinner….
DO NOT MISS THE BELIZE ZOO!!!!!
Or just enjoy all the local plants and flowers
How do you get there?
When we first starting going to Belize there were only 2 airline carriers. Now there is more option and more cities you can depart from. WestJet now has direct flights to Belize City! No more layovers in US cities cutting down travel time by upwards of 4 hours.
Southwest Airlines is now offering introductory flights to Belize beginning June 4. For Canadian travellers in Ontario a flight from Buffalo to Belize City is now $208 one-way! And direct flights will be offered from Ft.Lauderdale. So getting to Belize now will be not only quicker but cheaper.
Now you have many reasons to go and visit Belize and see it through out eyes!
