Must-see attractions and off-beat ideas for making the most of your trip: Relax on white sands with a rum punch or a bottle of Belize’s favorite dark beer. Snorkel the second largest (and most pristine) coral reef in the world. Swim alongside sea turtles, sharks, manta rays, and manatees in the wild. Kayak through mangrove forests, sail through calm Caribbean waters, or dance the night away to reggae or Garifuna drums. Sample Belize’s melting-pot cuisine, from fresh, sustainable seafood (conch fritters are not to be missed!) to fry jacks, salbutes, and some of the best fried chicken on the planet.
