Why We Love Them

Some say Belize is as close to paradise as it gets. You really do feel like you’re tapping into your inner Adam or Eve (or Steve) as you wander through the lush jungle and take in the plethora of indigenous wildlife. Head east and you’re suddenly met by vast shorelines that offer diving experiences rivalling the best in the world. Want to hang out with a few sharks and stingrays? Sure, no problem. Keen on spotting a jaguar in the jungle? Cool, Belize can accommodate.

Best Time to Visit

The country’s rainy season runs from June to November, so if you don’t mind getting a bit wet, it’s a great time to visit and avoid the tourist crowds. The rainy season also offers up a host of wildlife spotting opportunities that would be less likely during the peak times. If you’d prefer to stay dry and don’t mind a few more faces about, the peak dry season is late November to mid-April. The temperatures are favourable for lazing on the beaches and making the most of the coastal life.

Unique Foods

The staple meal in Belize is rice and beans, so not ideal for those avoiding carbs. The combo forms the backbone most meals, with stewed meat, grilled seafood or baked plantain occasionally added for flavour and variety. Another common accompaniment is potato salad (shock horror, two carbs in one meal). The proteins are often cooked in gravy and the rice and beans is cooked in coconut milk, making the dishes rich and fragrant.
