Belize all-inclusive vacations: head for the hills

For the inland experience, Belize presents a variety of activities: Caves (with and without rivers), Maya ruins and culture, jungle and rain forest full of exotic birds and wildlife, hiking, beautiful rivers for canoeing, kayaking, and swimming; and an opportunity to encounter the cultural diversity of our people. You can find far more details here on Belize all inclusive vacations visiting this site.

The Cayo District has all of these, but the southern districts of Toledo and Stann Creek have plenty to see, also. Of all the districts, Cayo is the most developed for tourism, with the widest diversity of lodging facilities, ranging from “jungle luxury” to downright adventure. Mopan River Resort and duPlooy’s are among those offering the former, while Ian Anderson’s can give a good dose of the latter! Cayo is also the jumping off point for excursions to Tikal, Guatemala.

Toledo and Stann Creek Districts offer the most of the rain forest and its wildlife, with some coastal areas, a few less familiar Maya ruins; and probably the richest cultural experience in the country, being home to many Garifuna and modern-day Maya peoples, living in more traditional ways. With over 500 documented species, bird-watching is fantastic anywhere in Belize, but Cayo and the south are rich in habitat, and sure to please serious and casual birders.

Northern Belize is beginning to develop its tourism potential, and is home to three well-established, upscale resorts: Lamanai Outpost Lodge (adjacent to Lamanai ruins), and Chan Chich (uniquely situated within the plaza of a ruin), both are in Orange Walk District and offer great bird-watching, among other activities; and Maruba Jungle Resort & Spa, in the Belize District. There are also a handful of nice, smaller hotels springing up around Corozal and the surrounding areas.
