Planning a Belize Family Vacation
Family vacations in Belize introduce curious young minds to colorful lessons in ecology and history. Having fun in Belize is effortless, and along the way your family will get an education in the tremendous variety of life in coral reefs and tropical jungles.
Clamber around sites like Altun Ha, Caracol, Xunantunich, and Lamanai — the stepped sides of these temples were made for energetic travelers, and the view from the top of a temple is hard to beat. On your hikes to see Maya sites, your naturalist guide will point out fascinating nativen plants and animals along the way.
Try tubing to see the rainforest at an easygoing pace. Go to the river that runs through the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve to visit the storied cave of Actun Tunichil Muknal. It’s not guaranteed to see rare animals on a nature hike, so take a trip to the Belize Zoo to see species like tapirs and jaguars. If you stay on Ambergris Caye or Caye Caulker you’ll be a short boat ride from whale sharks, stingrays, sea turtles, dolphins, manatees, and tropical reefs.
