great location for:

A rural region, there are several excellent Mayan sites and a number of excellent wildlife reserves. The ruins at Altun Ha are amongst the most popular in Belize. Partly restored, the site has a number of impressive temples. Created in 1984, the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary is a must for its high concentration of migrant and resident birds. Further north, near the border with Guatemala, you can find some of Central America’s best located and most fascinating lodges. Here, the incredible mix of wildlife and ancient history is extraordinary.
