A Maya Site
A must-do in Belize is to visit a Maya Ruin. Belize remains one of the few countries that allow you to climb to the top of these ancient cites. In the Belize district, you can visit Altun Ha. In the Orange Walk District, you can visit Lamanai. In the South, you can visit Nim Li Punit or Lubaantun. In the Cayo district, you can visit Xunatunich, Caracol and Cahal Pech. Caracol is the largest Maya site and has the tallest structure, with Xunatunich following. Climb to the top of these ancient structures and enjoy a panoramic view of a Belize’s lush jungle. The view from the top is worth the climb and worth a picture!

What reminds you more of place than a photo by a monument with the place spelled out in colorful and bold letters. There are two Belize signs you can pose by in Belize. Both are located in Belize City, one by Baron Bliss Lighthouse while the other on Seashore Drive. These signs make for a fun photograph that can remind you of the country you have visited.
