As a parent, if your idea of the perfect holiday with the children involves a bit of beachtime, plenty of adventurous activities and an all-important dose of cultural context, then a Belize family holiday might be just what you – and the children – are looking for.

The good news is that our team of Central America experts are on hand to tailor-make your Belize family holiday to your exact family specifications and interests. Then there are the additional services that come as standard on all Original Travel trips, such as fast-track through check-in and security, as well as access to a pre-flight lounge, even if you're flying in economy. In addition, all children between the ages of three and ten receive a fun pack designed by legendary children's party people Sharky & George and full of challenges, games and destination-specific quizzes to keep them entertained on the flights and transfers. In Belize itself, you have access to our clued-up local Concierge who can help out with recommendations, make last minute tweaks to the itinerary and generally make the trip run even more smoothly.

So, you're sold on Belize; what are the must-dos on your Belize family holiday? As above, this really is a destination that covers all the bases. The beaches and shallow warm waters of the coast and cayes (small islands along the coast) are perfect for swimming, kayaking and snorkelling over pristine coral reefs, while older children can learn to dive or add more dives to their logbooks.

Inland, Belize is one big (well, quite small actually) adventure playground, and your Belize family holiday ought to include exploration of some of the country's many fine Mayan ruins, zip lining through the lush rainforest canopy, wildlife walks to see (and hear) howler monkeys and wonderful birdlife, riding trips and extremely fun tubing along rivers through cave systems such as at Nohoch Che'en Caves. In short, Belize is the bee's knees for family holidays.
