Belize Summer 2016 in Photographs

Hopkins, Belize
As the summer draws to close, we thought we would showcase the beautiful Belizean summer months in photographs through the eyes of these Instagrammers.

Summer is the time to discover Belize during the quiet ‘green’ season, from climbing to the top of ancient Mayan ruins, zip-lining through the Mayflower Bocawina National Park to relaxing on the white sand beaches in the seaside villages of Placencia and Hopkins.

Check out the photographs below and we hope you enjoy this recollection of the past summer in Belize.
