The Best Instagram Accounts To Follow When Planning Your Belize Vacation

by Gisselle Hernandez

There are so many aspects that go into planning a vacation, it’s natural to want to have all your bases covered. These days, that includes conducting “research” on Instagram to check what the weather will be like, where to go for insta-worthy pics, and general information on the destination. The social media app has unofficially become a catch-all in trip planning, often a substitute by GenZ-ers and millennials over TripAdvisor. 

With this in mind, it’s not uncommon to have accounts dedicated solely to destinations. Belize is no exception, with several high-profile Instagram accounts taking the lead in marketing the tropical country. To make sure you know what to expect when coming—in no particular order—here are the top Instagram accounts to follow prior to your Belize vacation.

Okay, full disclosure this is my personal favorite Belize account for the cute, furry animals littered on their Instagram feed! This list wouldn’t be complete without adding the @belizezoo, since it’s always nice to have a reminder on your timeline that making a stop at this attraction is worth it.
