Things to do in Belize
Activities in Belize tend to focus around the country's natural wonders. Divers, snorkelers, and canoeists in particular are drawn to the Belize Barrier Reef, which is the world's second largest barrier reef. Along the southern coast of Belize is Glover's Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that's widely regarded as the most fascinating place in the world to scuba dive.
There are also plenty of things to do in Belize that don't require getting wet. The Belize Zoo and Tropical Education Centre is spread over 29 acres of tropical savannah; there, you'll be able to marvel at more than 125 animals, all native to Belize, including rescued animals, as well as animals born at the Zoo.
Travel to Belize's countryside to see what remains of the Mayan civilization. At the lost city of Lamanai, formerly a large Mayan city with three temples, there's an onsite that explains the 3,000 years of history on display - see if you can find some copper relics while you're navigating the grounds. After you've explored the pre-classic Mayan ruins and Spanish colonial buildings, take a dip in one of the several refreshing swimming holes. All of that history works up a sweat!
