    Sleepy yet energising, wild yet tame, gorgeous Caribbean destination for families, couples and singles. Something for everyone. Especially if you like snorkelling!

    Placencia is a sleepy peninsula in Belize blessed with peace. One long road is lined by white sands, warm Caribbean Sea and mangrove lagoon. The village feeling is like rewinding to Barbados before its heyday, echoed by the Kriol language.

    Cute beach bars spill into the sea, home to the world’s second largest barrier reef offering world-class diving. Turtle Inn is a refuge of understated luxury. Hollywood director Francis Ford Coppolla, has turned castaway villas into an enchanted fairytale film set.

    Great for those looking for a combination of adventure and relaxation - I would start in Belize City or on the mainland to do some of the mayan ruins, etc. Then I would travel out to the islands (like San Pedro) for a few days to get in some relaxation and diving/snorkeling.

    Belize is the most Caribbean of the Cental American countries. A former British Colony, English is the official language here (although you will find a mix of English, Spanish and Creole speaking people here). The country is known for its great snorkeling and diving, laid back vibe, as well as adventure sports in the jungle.

    Belize has wonderful variety including its jungles and reefs. Its people are generally friendly and helpful. I like the country but for some reason I lack enthusiasm. Perhaps it is because I didn't find the uniqueness I had hoped to see. "Pretty" doesn't always equate with "interesting."

    A lovely country to visit for diving, beaches, nature, fresh seafood, sweet rum, and nice local people. The country is diverse, with a mix of Caribbean, Mexican, and English influence. It's the only English speaking country in Central America. There are some great places to visit, like the islands, and some shady places like Belize City where you have to be careful. Overall fairly safe and friendly people.

    I never know how to answer the question, 'Have you been to Belize?' I spent a week in Belize, but I was never actually 'in' Belize. I sailed a catamaran around the southern islands, many of them uninhabited or barely inhabited by less than 100 people. We met lots of the locals, even had some Garifuna policemen over for a talent show and whiskey one night on our catamaran. Good times.

    Okay, but here's why I gave Belize five stars: the water. We snorkeled or swam about six hours a day every day for a week. The water was warm, clear, inviting. We saw all kinds of tropical fish and reefs and coral and even a few sharks. Belizean diving and snorkeling are some of the best in the world.

Description

Go ahead, just try to find a country on the planet packed with this much diverse natural beauty per square mile. We'll wait. ... Couldn't do it, could you? We didn't think so. From inland tropical jungles to palm-fringed Caribbean coasts and coral reef-encircled islands, Belize proves that good things come in small packages. Diving amongst the second largest coral reef in the world goes without saying while visiting Belize. Visit the shark and sting ray alley in the Hol Chan Marine Reserve (a small part of the 40% of Belize that is protected) or snorkel amongst the cayes and atolls off Belize’s coast, many uninhabited and rarely visited. Belize has a vast cave system; spelunking or taking an inner tube through the underground rivers in the Cayo district is eerie yet beautiful. Belize is filled with cultural diversity, as well, from the inland Spanish-speaking Mayans to the coastal English-speaking African Garifuna (descendants of the local Carib and Arawak tribes and West African former slaves).
