I booked a tour last minute through some research on TripAdvisor as well as some personal correspondence with Vitalino Reyes. Our tour guide was excellent right off the bat, incredibly funny and conversational. A few other people got picked up on the way and I had a chance to meet Vitalino during a drop off early on. He was incredibly ...Popular withOutdoor

A great place for one last rum punch before leaving Belize City. Unfortunately, five days after our departure, an electrical fire destroyed the small bar. They are planning on rebuilding though.Popular withAdventure

Notice I said FUN but not Safe. The dive masters are great people, and they do try to make things fun and interesting for you. We had 50 divers and we essentially rented out the shop and all their boats for 6 days straight. However, they certainly aren't the safest DMs. I'm a very experienced diver so it didn't matter ...Popular withOutdoor

This is a small Mayan ruins not far from Belize City. You can actually climb on these ruins, the main attraction here is the Temple of the Sun God. It's a steep climb going up and down, but the view from the top is impressive.Popular withHistoryFamiliesLocal

The day we went it was very hot and humid. The zoo itself was very different from the zoos we have visited in the states. The animals were so close you could touch them (if you were brave enough). There were lots of different types of animals to see...some not even in cages.Popular withOutdoorGreenLocal

I took a sunset catamaran cruise with Raggamuffin Tours, and it was one of the highlights of my trip. The crew (2 local Creole guys) chartered a laid back course around the Caye at sunset while serving rum punch, fresh salsa, and lots of Reggae music. The vibe was somewhere between party boat and romantic cruise. Not to be missed.Popular withOutdoorAdventure
