Belize has hundreds of archaeological sites covering the entire country, including a number of well-known ones, and some that still remain unexplored.
Archaeologists believe that Belize was at one time the centre of the ancient Maya world. The Maya Empire evolved around 350 BC in the lowlands of Belize and northern Guatemala and reached its height from 250 A.D. to 900 A.D. Today, the ancient Maya civilization can be rediscovered by visiting one of the many Mayan ancient ruins.
Belize is one of the most unique and exciting adventure travel destinations in Central America. If exploring Belize's stunning coral reefs and ancient Mayan ruins isn't enough for you, you can zipline through the rainforest canopy, rappel 250 ft down a waterfall or whitewater kayak on the Moho River.
