7 best places to travel in Belize

Hopkins is a friendly seaside village in Belize where you can explore the exciting culture of Garifuna. It was somewhat a newly established village after a catastrophic hurricane in 1940; farmers and fishers from a nearby area who got affected constructed the town. However, it’s still a place less commercialized, and the surrounding beauty is still intact for the visitors to relish. If you pick Hopkins inside of your plan, you can enjoy a beach and jungle vacation both in one place without a doubt. At the same time, fishing, snorkeling, enjoying Garifuna dances, visiting old Mayan sites, Bocawina National Park, and exploring Monkey River are a few of the options you have in this beautiful tiny village of Hopkins.

Belize City is currently not the country’s capital but is the gateway to all main deeds. We won’t say it’s necessarily the best tourist attraction in Belize, but you can do loads of activities in Belize’s old capital. This city is full of ancient sites like Baron Bliss Lighthouse, the House of Culture, the Museum of Belize, and St. John’s Cathedral. Also, consider visiting the Belize zoo, in which you can see rescued native animals of Belize. Looking at Belize’s largest temple called “The Temple of the Masonry Altars” is another main event tourists participate in while in Belize City. But, keep in mind that some sections of this city can be slightly dangerous for the tourists, mainly due to poverty; pick a guide with experience and avoid traveling alone.

Glover’s Reef

It’s a spectacular Atoll located in Dangriga town in southern Belize and a must-visit place in Belize. The site was named after two pirates back in 1750; the British hired them to raid Spanish ships. The biodiversity of this place is unmatched, and in fact, it’s a UNESCO world heritage site. Snorkeling, Scuba diving, and sea kayaking are famous around Glover’s Reef. The Glover’s Reef Basecamp and Isla Marisol resort are two beautiful places we recommend you to stay, and be prepared to consume at least three days if you want to explore the area to the fullest.
