Belize Barrier Reef Vacations: Where to Stay, Best Places to Go

belize barrier reef vacations

One of Belize’s most breathtaking natural wonders isn’t even situated on the mainland. The Belize Barrier Reef sprawls along 190 miles of the nation’s coastline amid the waters of the Caribbean Sea where it is a relative newcomer at just 500,000 years old.

Re-shaped around 8,000 years ago when the last ice age blanketed the planet, the Belize Barrier Reef’s ecology is a work in progress for a nation eager to make sure it remains an epicenter of life for all manner of marine species, and it’s so vast, astronauts see it from outer space.

For folks whose idea of recreational joy includes spending time pursuing marine-related activities, the reef itself provides the ideal focus for travellers who appreciate the magic of geology and are eager to frame their vacation time around the reef’s existence. Does that include you? If so, your timing is perfect for a visit.

Reasons to see the reef when visiting Belize

-It’s home to 500+ fish species that include seahorses, sharks, jellyfish and octopus.
-Charles Darwin and the iconic diver Jacques Cousteau both made it a point to visit.
-The reef is home to endangered sea turtles, crocodile and manatees.
-So many birds flock to the reef, identifying all of them is a subject of great debate.
-In 1996, the Belize Barrier Reef was proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
-Around 350 types of shellfish and 100+ species of coral call the reef home.
