Don’t Dive? 5 Ways You Can Still Enjoy Belize

The Central American paradise of Belize is known for some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the world. But what if you prefer to stay on dry land — or simply don’t want to spend the entire vacation in the water?

Here are five other activities you can enjoy in Belize, without getting wet.

Explore the Ruins 
Adventurers will find many Mayan ruins in this country, some of which have become important pre-Columbian archaeological sites. Here are a few worth checking out:

Go Hiking

Hiking is a great way to explore the natural beauty and the wildlife, while also getting a workout. You can even hike on the way to other attractions, such as the ruins. Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary is a network of inland lagoons, swamps and waterways. It’s only 40 minutes away from the Belize International Airport, and is the best place for hiking and bird watching in the country. There is also Cocksomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, which is also known as Jaguar Preserve. This sanctuary offers some of the best jungle hiking trails in Belize.

Go Biking 
Cycling is huge in Belize and is a great way to get around the beach areas. Most hotels have bikes, or you can go on a bike tour, most of which are typically four to five hours long. Plus, biking is perfect for getting a taste of rural Belize, and you can go mountain biking to explore jungles, waterfalls and more.

Enjoy the Nightlife 
People in Belize like to take it easy at night, which can be wonderful if you’re looking for relaxation. But there is plenty of excitement if that’s what you’re looking for. Caye Caulker has some of the best nightlife in the country. As you visit the bars, make sure you look up and stargaze. The scene is small yet enjoyable. The Oceanside Bar might have live music or karaoke, and Barrier Reef Sports Bar & Grill can be exciting. Also, you definitely shouldn’t miss the I & I Bar, which is three stories high, with swing seats and a Monkey Walk. San Pedro and Belize City have a more active and varied nightlife.

Eat the Food 
Belize offers many indigenous tastes, specialties, styles and traditions. Most food is fairly cheap, and seafood is the most popular and prevalent. Also, the people love hot peppers. And as you walk along the beach, enjoy a tropical papaya or a carambola (star fruit).
