What I would do differently today

Belize is sparsely populated Caribbean country which has almost half of its territory under some kind of protection. It has the second longest barrier reef in the world and is full of the Mayan sites. If I did something differently it would mostly be because of the lack of time I had left for Belize:

  • I would do it a bit differently regarding the last two nights spent in Belize now. I would take a bus from the remote island Tobacco Caye to Belize City and take a water taxi to a busy island Caye Caulker. I would then catch a local plane on my way back directly to the international airport. Belize City is not that interesting and you won’t miss much skipping it.
  • If I had more time I would visit the Mayan Xunantunich by San Ignacio and the Mayan Lamanai by Orange Walk.
  • Had I had even more time I would spend a week on the remote Glover´s reef atol www.glovers.com.bz.
