Reefs, Ruins, and Rainforest


A Unique Blend of Sea and Forest - Mayan, African, Spanish, English...

Offshore the hemisphere's largest barrier reef runs the length of the country, emerging in islands and atolls, and sheltering an underwater world of astonishing beauty and diversity. ancient limestone from old seabeds underlies most of the mainland, covered now with river deposits and rich tropical rain forests, but revealed in dramatic sinkholes and caverns. The Maya Mountains, remnants of some primeval island rise in startling contrast to the lowlands, culminating in the isolated pine forests of Mountain Pine ride and the 3675 foot beacon of Victoria Peak.
Fifteen hundred years ago Belize was the heartland of the Mayan empire, and the ruins of their cities dot the coastal plain. the Mayas still live here joined by the descendants of British pirates and planters, Puritan  traders, African slaves, Mexican farmers, Asian immigrants, and the colorful Garifuna people with their blend of African and Carib Indian culture. Belize is a multiracial society joined together under a British form of government, the heritage of days when it was known as the crown colony of British Honduras, and graced by a characteristically Belizean tolerance and laid-back gentility.

Escape to Coral Islands

Ambergris Caye - Largest and most populated of the Belize cayes, Ambergris offers more accommodations, services, and activities than any of the smaller islands. Boats and tour services are easily booked for excursions to the reef and the outer islands. Ambergris is the choice for the more socially inclined traveler. Our three, four, and five-night packages at Ambergris include roundtrip flight from Belize International Airport and lodging at one of our carefully selected island hotels.

Ruins and Rainforest

To the west the Maya Mountains offer a refuge of cool pineforests and sparkling streams emerging from the exuberance of the rain forest.. Spend a week or a week end in this area surrounded by remnants of Mayan civilization like the fortress of Xunantunich and the mighty city of Caracol. Follow the Panti Trail of Mayan Medicine, explore caverns, visit waterfalls, slide down the cataracts of the Rio On.
