With the rains having gone and the sun now shining, it is time to start thinking about Belize vacations! Whether it is diving in Belize or just laying back and enjoying the coconut rum in San Pedro on Ambergis Caye, now is the time to go. The weather will remain until early May when the rains return. The country has a huge amount to offer and is one of the most diverse in Central America.
In the west of the country is the jungle where you can go horse riding, caving, canoeing or just float down the Macal River on an inner tube. From here you can access the hidden Mayan ruins of Caracol and perhaps even spot an elusive jaguar en-route. This region is also the jumping off point if you wish to see Tikal in Guatemala.
To the south of the country is Placencia Belize, one of the most laid back regions you will ever find. From Placencia you can easily reach the Belize barrier reef and the famous blue hole, an experts diving paradise. Even further south is the Toledo district, an untouched wilderness with some superb lodges.
Lying in the heart of the country is Lamanai and Chan Chich, both offer some of the best birding options in the country and also the stunning Mayan ruins of Lamanai, where, from the top, you have a 360 degree view across the jungle canopy!
