Belize provides one of the world’s best places for a family holiday, and is a destination that has something for all the family.
You and your children can marvel at the most incredible natural beauty and amazing wildlife. You can keep the kids happy and occupied with a constant bombardment of their senses and the smell, sights and sounds of staying in the middle of the rainforest.

Belize has something to offer every member of the family – whatever their age. Be amazed at ancient Maya ruins emerging tall and majestic from the surrounding jungle. Climb the steep steps for fabulous views out over the rainforest canopy below. Go on a guided river trip for a great opportunity to see wildlife of all kinds. Try some cave-tubing – one of Belize’s favourite past-times where you drift down river through the extensive cave system – along with exhilarating zip-lining through the jungle canopy. End your holiday with some beach R&R where you can snorkel, swim or dive along the longest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere.
