West Belize


Impressive sights - artificial and natural - line the route from Belize City to the Guatemalan border, starting with Belize Zoo - a pleasant break from the norm. Monkey Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and Guanacaste National Park are both worth a visit. From the bustling town of San Ignacio, there are canoe trips down the Macal River and dramatic cave systems, journeys into the impressive limestone scenery of Mountain Pine Ridge, and the spectacular Maya ruins of Caracol, Xunantunich and Cahal Pech to explore. Day trippers can also cross the border for a quick visit to Tikal in Guatemala.
