5 things to do while travelling to Belize

Belize might be small in size but it’s mighty in history and culture and an interesting fusion of Caribbean and Latin-American vibes. These are some of the things you can do during a trip to the country:
Lamanai ruins
The Lamanai ruins are one of the oldest continuously occupied Maya sites in Belize, from about 1,500 BC, when inhabitants grew maize at the site, to 1,680 AD. It’s one of the largest Maya ceremonial sites in Belize and had once been a major city of the Maya civilization. The site includes the Temple of the Mask, the Temple of the Jaguar Masks and the High Temple. Climb to the top of High Temple for great views of Belize. Details:

The Community Baboon Sanctuary, founded by National Geographic grantee Dr. Robert Horwich, is a conservation project that works to protect the natural habitat of the endangered black howler monkey. It’s one of the six howler monkey species found in Central and South America and one of two monkeys f…
