Top 2020 Tours of Belize
It’s hard to narrow down the top things to do in Belize, but here are some of the things that should top any adventure traveler’s must-do Belize itinerary.
ATM Cave Tour
The Actun Tunichil Muktal (ATM) Cave is considered one of the most important sacred caves in the world. Used by the ancient Maya for burials, religious ceremonies and human sacrifices, this massive cave is located in the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve in western Belize. Visiting the cave is a test of skill and endurance that requires a long jungle hike, fording several streams and hiking the cave’s twisted chambers.
Xunantunich and Cahal Pech Maya Ruins
The great Maya civilization built many of its most important city-states in Belize. The ruins at Cahal Pech and Xunantunich are prime examples of their impressive engineering and architectural knowledge. Visiting these ruins takes you back in time.
Belize Barrier Reef
The second-largest barrier reef in the world, the Belize Barrier Reef is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its stunning beauty and amazing biodiversity. The barrier reef offers world-class snorkeling and scuba diving. Experienced divers who want a true challenge can attempt the Blue Hole of Belize.
This is an adventure excursion that could only exist in Belize. It involves a river ride on a professional inflated tube that takes you through a network of ancient Maya caves. A cave tubing trip is scenic, heart-pumping and purely Belize.
Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary
Cockscomb Basin is the world’s first jaguar sanctuary. This stunning preserve protects thousands of acres of pristine rainforest, scenic waterfalls, exotic birds and a huge variety of wildlife. Managed by the Belize Audubon Society, it’s the perfect spot for hiking, camping or birding.
One of Belize’s major rivers, this coastal waterway begins in the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary and travels through southern Belize to the Caribbean. It is a wild, pristine river with spectacular scenery. If you want a rugged boat trip, Monkey River is your destination.
