Planning Your Time
Some people spend their entire vacations (or at least the inland portion of them) in one of the adventure lodges of the region. The city of Belmopan certainly doesn’t require much of your time, but the rest of the region may warrant a day or two.
As you drive the Western Highway out of Belize City, save at least an hour for the Belize Zoo , and another half hour for the hike in Guanacaste National Park .
If you have the time, it is highly recommended to spend at least a full day visiting the other national parks along the Hummingbird Highway , and you might even choose to spend a rustic evening in one of the towns you’ll be driving through as well.
