by Vivian Roe

If you don’t own a Lonely Planet guide, yourself, wherever you travel you are bound to see one somewhere along the way. Whether it’s an avid adventurer reading on the plane, an old copy left on the hotel bookshelf, your friend’s go-too suggestion when you ask for recommendations. In the travel world, the top 10 highlights from Lonely Planet for a destination is a great base to start planning, and Belize is no different.

As the last page of each book tells their story.

A beat-up old car, a few dollars in the pocket and a sense of adventure. In 1972, that’s all Tony and Maureen Wheeler needed for the trip of a lifetime – across Europe and Asia overland to Australia. “It took several months, and at the end – broke but inspired – they sat at the kitchen table writing and stapling together their first travel guide.” and thus Lonely Planet was born.

Now, the guide is synonymous with travel. Dubbed “the backpacker’s blue bible,” Lonely Planet’s print and digital guidebooks are packed full of information and insights including things to do, where to stay and even full itineraries and maps. And of course they’ve covered Belize!

Here, we turn to one of the most loved and trusted travel guides, Lonely Planet, to explore their top 10 highlights in Belize.
