Ted’s Travels – It’s never been a better time to go to Belize
Belize, a country nestled between the Caribbean Sea, Mexico and Guatemala, it is a naturalist paradise with abundant wild life in tropical rain forests, lush mountains, foot hills, bird filled coastal reef and wetlands. It even has cays with beautiful beaches. Belize has also amazing coral along the 295 km barrier reef, only second biggest to ours in Australia, perfect for fishing, diving, and snorkeling.
In the barrier reef, your clients can witness Belize’s’ natural wonder the Great Blue Hole. The hole is circular in shape, over 300 meters (984 ft.) across and 125 meters (410 ft.) deep. The world’s largest natural formation of its kind, the Great Blue Hole is part of the larger Barrier Reef Reserve System, a World Heritage Site.
But not only that, Belize is also part of The Mayan World, Caracol Ruins is home to the 42 meters high pyramid structure and your clients can explore the ruins in jungle of Lamanai or explore further into river caves.
Let your clients have a lazy day on a paradisiac beach on Ambergris Caye or get them hiking to the Mountain Pine Ridge where they can stay at an eco-lodge. Or they can even visit the Jaguar reserve at Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary.
Call us to tailor an itinerary for around 10 days (at least!) for a combined Caribbean Sea holiday of history and culture, exploring the landscapes, flopping on white sand beaches and enjoy the food and music. And by the way, they speak English! As it was once called the British Honduras!
