It’s Ancient History
The ancient Maya were a vast and culturally complicated empire that were known for their intricate rituals, ornate weaponry, and ceremonial sacrifices. One can truly appreciate these fascinating events in all their historical context with a trip to Xunantunich, the capital of their ancient empire. Situated in the picturesque Cayo District along the western border, the top of the site’s 130 foot-tall pyramid offers breathtaking views of the Belizean and Guatemalan countrysides. While this is an adventure on the inland, the coasts and seas of Belize offer more spectacular experiences of their own.
Discover a Whole New World
Just a short boat ride from any point on the Belizean coast lies a true wonder of the world - the Belize Barrier Reef, the second-largest reef in the world. Playing host to more than 100 species of coral, 500 species of fish, and the world-famous Great Blue Hole, this is a destination worthy of any bucket list. Adventure abounds in these waters, and it can be explored by everyone from the casual summer snorkeler to the seasoned SCUBA diver. Atop the waves above the Reef, you’ll find the more than 200 islands or cayes of Belize that are entirely new adventures unto themselves.
Adult Summer Camp
On one such island called Thatch Caye about 10 miles off the coast, a unique event you can’t experience anywhere else in the world is coming this August. Playfully coined the Adult Summer Camp, 30 travelers will enjoy an adults-only playground on a private island filled with all your favorites from summer camp, with an adult twist, of course. Better yet, the accommodations on this rustic island paradise include picture-perfect overwater bungalows pristinely perched atop the Caribbean Sea and a luxuriously appointed penthouse suite. If you’re looking for a unique, relaxing, once-in-a-lifetime summer vacation in Belize, look no further than this!
