The Barrier Reef
Australia may have the Great Barrier Reef, but we think ours is pretty nifty, too. Actually, our is the second largest in the world, right after Australia, and it is home to hundreds of types of coral and vibrantly-colored fish. If you love to scuba dive or snorkel, you’ll be happy to spend countless hours exploring our underwater beauty.
It’s not everyone that has a jungle for a backyard. But if you decide to move to Belize, that’s exactly what you’ll have! Inland you’ll find a network of sanctuaries and national parks teeming with local wildlife. Birders will enjoy the chance to catch a glimpse of over 570 species of birds. You may even spot a jaguar through those binocular lenses. You’ll also get a chance to see howler monkeys, toucans, green iguanas and more.
Explore Ancient Mayan Ruins
Belize is home to quite a few archaeological sites that date to ancient Mayan times (AD 250–1000). Explore tall stone temples that often boast 360 views of the surrounding lush jungle forests. You can also spend time exploring excavated tombs and viewing intricate hieroglyphs. The very brave can descend into deep caves where Mayan kings once performed bloody rituals.
