Plan Your Vacation in Belize
by Gem Goulbourne
Belize is a popular Caribbean destination that has what it takes to make your vacation memorable.
A story to relate over and over again to friends and family for many years to come.

The mainland boasts of many discovered, and undiscovered ancient Mayan Ruins, cloaked in dense tropical rain forests. Using a good guide book, the best of them can be visited in the few weeks of your stay. Hiring a 4x4 will guarantee the success of your trip.
The high mountains and ridges of Belize oose with beautiful pine forests and spectacular water falls, that cascade down below the forest canopies into the many waterways that were once used by the Mayan traders.
The jungles and marsh lands are a haven for bird watchers with many of the worlds endangered species, like the scarlet macaw, colonizing at different times of the year.
And for those with a thirst for adventure, a network of miles and miles of caves carved deep into the limestone hills, carry tourists as they float along on tubes, eventually emerging into emerald, fresh water pools.
So make sure you pack enough polythene bags for your belongings if you want to try some of that.
