Belize City, Belize

Located at the base of the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize offers travelers a wealth of attractions. The country's dense rain forest is dotted with Mayan ruins. The forest is also home to a wide range of tropical wildlife, ranging from jaguars and ocelots to keel-boated macaws and howler monkeys. Offshore, the world's second largest barrier reef offers some of the finest diving in the world. And Belize's easygoing ways, a legacy of its past as a British colony, feels far more akin to a small Caribbean island than a Central American republic.

Note: Belize City is an anchorage port, guests transfer to shore via local tender.
