Maya culture is one of the most intriguing facts about the Central American nation. The Maya ruins, which have been well preserved for centuries, clearly depict the way of life of the ancient Mayas who dwelled in the lush jungles of Belize. With popular sites such as Cahal Pech, which is the oldest in the western part of the country, Caracol, which is the largest, and caves with artifacts, vessels, and stoneware used by Mayas, touring the ruins is a must-do activity for a family seeking to make the most out of a tour of Belize.

Cave Tubing

While cave tubing may seem over-rated as it involves simply floating on a tube and exploring caves, it is one of the most family-bonding activities you can engage in on a tour of Belize. Caves are a significant part of the Maya civilization and while exploring them by walking is faster and more engaging, cave tubing is more relaxing and fun and allows you to sink in and let loose in the quiet, serene environment.

In close proximity to Belize City is the Belize zoo, which has hundreds of species of animals dwelling in their natural habitat. Adults and kids alike are bound to enjoy the variety the zoo offers, ranging from bird species to jaguars, peccaries, and more. With a gift shop in the park, getting a family souvenir is a great idea.

Visit the Belize Barrier Reef

Visit Monkey River

The small quiet village of Monkey River is not a popular tourist destination for no reason. The howler monkeys, which gave the village its name, are a key attraction but not the only one in this southern part of the country. Butterflies, iguanas, and tropical birds are also part of the plethora of fauna and flora that dot the village.
