WHERE TO GO IN Belize

Chan Chich

Chan Chich is located within the largest contiguous forest north of the Amazon basin. Conservation efforts to sustain and preserve the tri-national Maya Forest ("La Selva Maya") are underway with collaborative efforts undertaken in Belize, Guatemala and Mexico. Gallon Jug Estate enjoys a fortunate location at the heart of La Selva Maya, buffered on all sides by forest and/or protected areas.

Hopkins

Hopkins is a small Garifuna fishing village of around 1000 villagers and is considered by many to be the cultural centre of the Garifuna population in Belize. Situated on the Caribbean coast it has sandy beaches with gently swaying coconut palms and is a great base from which to enjoy the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere offering some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling.

Lamanai

Orange Walk District in the northwest corner of Belize is the most remote and wild district of them all.  The impressive Mayan ruins of Lamanai lie within a vast impenetrable jungle, accessible only by boat. 

Mountain Pine Ridge

The flora, wildlife and birding in the Maya mountains are like no place on earth. The Mountain Pine Ridge reserve is home to various large mammals, including Puma, Jaguars, Ocelots, White-nosed Coatis, and Baird's Tapirs. Fantastic for birders too; native species of bird include the Eastern Bluebird, Stygian Owl, King Vulture, Blue-crowned Motmot and Red-lored Parrot.

Placencia

Placencia is a traditional Creole fishing village with an enviable location.  Its brightly painted wooden shacks are found at the end of a palm-covered, 16-mile finger of sand on the south coast of Belize.  The superb beaches of this sandy point are met by Caribbean rollers on one side while a sheltered lagoon lies on the other side. 

The Cayes

The Belizean Cayes are a series of tiny islands off the Belizean coast with porcelain-white beaches and turquoise waters.  With a concentration of over a hundred islands, two stunning atolls and miles of barrier reef, it is hard to find a better place! 

The Cayo District

Situated on the border with Guatemala, The Cayo District, at the centre of which is the small town of San Ignacio, is a land of adventure.  With its jungle covered limestone hills riddled with caves and peppered with Mayan ruins, time here is spent exploring.

Toledo

Toledo, the southern most district of Belize, is the least populated and most unspoilt. It is ideal for those who want to explore its natural riches or simply find physical and spiritual refreshment in the peace of the rainforest. The district is extraordinarily well endowed with cultural and environmental attractions.
