Belize is a fairly small country and yet its size belies the full expression of possibilities that exist for travelers. As an eco-friendly destination hotspot, with more than its fair share of culture and local attractions, more and more people are choosing Belize for precisely these reasons. Because the southern coast of Belize was a tad late to the tourism expansion boom, you’ll find that it retains a uniquely rustic and unspoiled quality. With this in mind, so you don’t miss out on some of the best beaches in Belize, and world-class culture experiences, we’ve compiled a list of the top Belize beachside resorts with the best vacation packages to suit every type of traveler.
