Northern belize is not a priority destination for most visitors to Belize, even though it has so much to offer. In fact, this tendency to forego northern Belize is a very real attraction in it self...the many attractions of the north, including Mayan sites, lagoons, nature reserves and the small towns and villages are less crowded and developed than the more popular south and west.

  • Lagoons - Lagoons have been important throughout Belizean history from the travel routes of the Mayans to the transport of logwood and Mahagany of the Baymen to corridors and habitat of Belizean wildlife.
  • Mayan sites - Northern Belize is literally peppered with jungled covered cities of the ancient Maya, most still unexcavated.
  • Nature Reserves - From coral reef to mangrove to coastal lagoon to tropical forest, Northern Belize is as diverse as any destination in the country.
  • Towns and Villages - new roads and a ferry have opened up previously isolated villages to exploration.
  • Other Places to See - Bird reserves, an isolated beach, reported evidence of a massive meteorite strike and nearby Mexico.
