Famous for its warm waters, lush jungles, and laid-back style, Belize is also known for its extensive conservation efforts.
After achieving independence, the new government set aside 40 percent of the total territory as protected land. Since that original designation, protection of pristine forest and marine habitats has continued, with subsequent establishment of numerous additional public and private reserves.
Founded as British Honduras in 1862, historic Belize served as an outpost for pirates and loggers, since the early 17th century. Prior to European settlement, the Maya occupied this land for over 3,000 years. Over the centuries, the indigenous populations erected dozens of cities around elaborate temples and plazas.
Belize’s size—just 180 miles from north to south and 68 miles east to west—allows travelers to effortlessly mix active adventure with relaxation. Visits to tropical forest and mountain lodges can be conveniently paired with downtime at luxurious islands and beach hotels.
The best time to visit is between December and May. Rainy season extends from June to November, with hurricane potential from July to mid-November. Temperatures are fairly constant year-round, with highs in the mid-80s and lows in the 70s. March can be windy on the coast.

What an amazing adventure we have had. The whole rhythm of the trip was perfect, and leaving one place for the next worked perfectly. Wish we had a month to really explore. Thanks again!
One of our best trips ever, made excellent by LANDED’s attention to detail. The guides, drivers, and “handlers” were superb. The hotels were top notch. We felt relaxed and pampered all the way. Will definitely look to LANDED to plan our next trip to South America.
Absolutely amazing. Thanks again John. Carlos was the best guide I’ve ever had anywhere in the world. Top notch talent.
There is not a single thing on the itinerary that we would change. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt. The hotels were beautiful, the food delicious and the pace of the activities was perfect for us. Thank you so much for making our trip such a fantastic experience.
In short, our trip was amazing, and, as we had hoped, the Inca civilization was fascinating to us. Thanks so much for your constant assistance and thorough planning.
The planning, service and execution of the trip was flawless – thank you for making it perfect!
LANDED’s services were excellent. You were helpful and knowledgeable, making our trip a memorable one. I will use your services in the future as I continue to explore Central & South America.
It was like being in a very well organized dream. Your patience with my questions and concerns during the planning stage was remarkable.
I’ve never had such great service from a tour operator. Not only were you a great help on the planning-insuring that I was staying at the right places and enjoying the type of activities we love-but the follow up was incredible. I look forward to working with you again on a another trip.
You actually got to know us, which made it possible to know just what we like. You promised the best trip ever and you kept your promise.
The entire trip was amazing. Both the hotel & restaurant recommendations were well thought out and helped us thoroughly enjoy our honeymoon.
LANDED is like the ultimate virtual guide, suggesting the high points and helping us get the most out of a week’s time.
We had a great time, and didn’t miss anything. We zip-lined, rafted, sailed and surfed. The contacts and drivers were professional and courteous. We don’t want to be back at work. Thank you for all of the work you did to set up this trip.
