Connect with an Adventure Specialist

In a country this exciting, you’ll want to stay awhile. Located on the eastern coast of Central America, Belize has both a tropical Caribbean Sea shoreline and a lush jungle inland to the west. A highlight is the Belize Barrier Reef, the world’s second longest barrier reef. Hundreds of island cayes, such as Blackbird Caye, Laughing Bird Caye and Lighthouse Reef Atoll, host endless opportunities to snorkel, scuba dive, paddleboard and kayak. With Central America’s lowest population density and more than 5,000 species of plants and hundreds of animal species, it’s a true dream for Belize nature travel enthusiasts seeking remote landscapes and pristine, tropical scenery.

Belize Nature Travel – What Wildlife to See

Curious what you might encounter on our Belize nature travel itineraries? Belize is a hotspot for bird watchers with over 500 species including the scarlet macaw, red-footed booby, blue-crowned motmot, jabiru stork and the keel-billed toucan, the national bird of Belize. A highlight of many AdventureSmith Belize vacations is the Belize Barrier Reef, home to more than 100 types of coral and over 500 species of tropical fish. Don’t forget about friendly sea turtles and dolphins, as well as spotted eagle rays. Rivers like the Rio Dulce are home to manatees, crocodiles and a host of other exciting species. At a Belize jungle lodge, listen for howler monkeys in the treetops, follow the tracks of tapirs, coatimundi and the mystical jaguar. For those particularly keen on jaguars, look for itineraries with Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, the world’s first jaguar refuge. Photo by Belize Tourism Board

Belize Adventure Vacations for Every Season

Our Belize tours are offered year-round, but note the following seasonal variations to plan the best times to visit: Belize sailing vacations mostly operate during the North American winter, when there are dependable trade winds (February through April) and weather is often ideal (November to May). June to August is best for those who want Belize active vacations that include scuba diving. And you can’t go wrong for Belize nature travel year-round as wildlife is active in any weather. Note that the climate data referenced above is for Belize City, Belize.
