5 Things We Love About Belize
We just got back from Belize... now let's give you the scoop!
Hol Chan Marine Reserve is one of the most popular areas to snorkel at in Belize! “Hol Chan” is a Mayan word, meaning “small” or “little” channel. This channel is a natural cut-through barrier reef system approximately 75 ft wide and 30 ft deep –creating two mini coral walls. Hol Chan is perfect for families who want a deep-sea adventure! Once you dip into the water, you will experience an abundance of marine life including: tropical fish, green turtles, stingrays, barracudas, eels, coral... and perhaps a shark or two—eeek! Anyone brave enough to take on the challenge!?
Okay divers, this one's for you. The Great Blue Hole is greatly known for being one of the best spots for recreational scuba diving in Belize. Its crystal-clear waters offer a plethora of marine life, making for one spectacular adventure! The Blue Hole hosts several diving excursions, where you can explore the Caribbean reef all day. Named as one of the world's largest natural formations of its kind, The Great Blue Hole is part of the Barrier Reef Reserve System, and voted one of the top 10 reasons to visit Belize!
Considering that Belize is surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, it shouldn't be a surprise that seafood made the list. Everything is always fresh, locally-sourced, and packed with flavor. Belize cuisine is also known to vary in flavors, as they incorporate a variety of cultures into all their meals. Are you a foodie too? Then check out some of Belize's top restaurants, here.
4. Beach Bars
Who doesn't love a good beach bar? Belize's casual and relaxing atmosphere is ideal for those who want a long, lazy day at the beach. The nightlife is also something you won't want to miss! Need a recommendation? We always have a blast at Palapa Bar and Grill!
Belize's sparkling turquoise waters and jungle-like views are a true heart-stopper at first sight! The lush greenery and silky sand present a really unique setting for those seeking the ultimate, exotic vacation.
