Filled to the brim with ancient Mayan treasures and age-old traditions, this pint-sized Central American nation packs a punch when it comes to cultural holidays. Explore jungle-clad Mayan ruins in Inland Belize, float through ancient limestone caves in Nohoch Che'en National Park and discover Mennonite communities in Barton Creek. Caracol is undoubtedly the crown jewel of Belize cultural holidays, an ancient Mayan site which superseded both Guatemala’s Tikal and Mexico’s Chichén Itzá in terms of its power and significance during the eighth century. The most magical aspect of a visit here is the
freedom to climb the steps of the excavated building (unlike at other major archaeological sites where structures are roped off), and the top of the ruins reveals an astonishing panorama of the surrounding emerald-green rainforest. In the nearby town of San Ignacio, take part in a chocolate-making workshop led by a Mayan family, or head for Actun Tunichil Muknal – one of the country’s most impressive caves – which is filled with ancient carvings and ceramics.

What our clients say about us
Belize customer reviews (1 reviews)
Very positive recommendations from friends led us to Original Travel, and we were not disappointed. From the very beginning you were attentive to our needs and came up with interesting suggestions, and your guidance and advice continued throughout the trip. When we were delayed at the airport you had someone to accompany us to catch our flight in time; when an activity had to be cancelled due to the weather our concierge found a solution within the hour; the choice of hotels was excellent. We can't wait to discover another destination with Original Travel!
