Formerly British Honduras, this small country (the size of Wales) has long been a laid back idyll, attracting only those in the know and, as such, is the jewel in Central America’s crown and the ideal place for a honeymoon. Brimming with adventure and culture, Belize straddles untouched jungle and gorgeous Caribbean seas. Whether you want to dive the Blue Hole, swim in the Shark and Ray Alley, or explore the fascinating Mayan jungle ruins, Belize will leave you enchanted.

With almost 400 km of coastline and the world’s second largest coral reef, it would be easy to assume Belize offers nothing more than turquoise seas and sandy beaches. Yet just off the shores lies The Cayes, consisting of over 200 coral atolls and islands both large and small, an aquatic oasis for 70 species of coral and more than 400 species of fish. 

Travel Northwest and you’ll find wild and lush rainforests on the Guatemala and Mexican border, where the more intrepid traveller can discover Mayan ruins, mystical rivers and a plethora of exotic wildlife going about their business in the jungle. 

Journey inland to find the Cayo and Mountain Pine Ridge area, where your itinerary will include canoe tours down the Macal River, dips into the Rio Frio and its natural swimming pools, before hiking to the Mayan ruins of Xuantunich and Caracol. On your way, you’ll learn of the enormity of the empire that lived here – more than the entire population of modern-day Belize – during the 8th Century.

Your adventure will end with some hard-earned relaxation on the remote and calm beach of Southern Belize. Choose from Dangriga and Placencia, both beautiful and remote locations off the beaten track.
