The Belize Barrier Reef

The Belize Barrier reef stretches 180 miles along the county’s coastline, leaving no shortage of excellent scuba spots. For an exciting day trip, explore an underwater world teeming with life at The Aquarium near Long Caye, or swim among underwater stalactites deep below the surface inside the Great Blue Hole. The almost perfect circular chasm of deep blue measures 1,000 feet across and is more than 400 feet deep, making it the only “Blue Hole” visible from space. Here, an eerie hue of dusky cobalt illuminates greyscale columns carved by erosion during the last ice age. In just a few minutes of immersion, it becomes impossible not to be in awe of nature’s handiwork.

Hike Victoria Peak

The odyssey begins within the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary’s park headquarters, where hikers are recommended to wake up within for an early start at dawn. The innocent Victoria Peak Trail signage gives way to a mostly flat old lagging track that twists northwest towards the Peak itself. Victoria Peak is reserved for intrepid hikers, and the self-proclaimed weekend warrior, as one of the most strenuous hikes in Central America. A VP-experienced licensed tour guide must accompany all hikers on the 27 km one-way trail with no more than 8 guests per group.
