A lot of fuss has been made about what a great destination Belize is for the more adventurous travelers. The presence of landmarks like the Blue Hole, ATM Cave, and the world’s second-largest barrier reef are like a siren call to the most daring of vacationers. But while Belize is essentially a high octane obstacle course, it’s also got plenty to offer to people beyond weekend warriors. Both families and couples will find an awful lot to enjoy throughout Belize.

The diverse ecosystem is perhaps Belize’s biggest selling point. The country is rife with ancient Maya ruins in a remarkable state of repair, and Guatemala is close enough that you can venture there on a day trip. With its combination of jungles and beaches, farmland and cayes, you’ll never run out of scenery to explore. Whether you’re looking to take a romantic cruise with that special someone and seek out a glimpse of whale sharks or bring your family biking through the dense trails of Belize’s jungles, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to bond with your family throughout Belize.

And if you’re feeling adventurous, there are opportunities for family members of any age. There’s no honeymoon quite like one spent canoeing through ancient caves, and zip lining is a great natural alternative to run of the mill amusement parks that the whole family can enjoy. Between snorkeling, diving, fishing, and swimming, there are activities tailored to the interests and experience levels of just about anyone.

But Belize isn’t all about nature. The blend of exotic cultures that makes up Belize’s towns and cities are well worth experiencing firsthand. Whether that means learning the native dances and drumming of the friendly Garifuna people or digging into the rich colonial history of Belize City, there’s no lack of opportunities here. Stuff your face at Placencia’s annual Lobsterfest, take a tour of a chocolate factory and learn to make your own, or just get lost in the heady streets of the country.

But many people choose to spend their time in Belize just kicking back and relaxing. The crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea and the sandy white beaches are a perfect place to wile away your afternoons and evenings, and Belize stays nicely temperate all year long. Even the green season is mostly dominated by sunny afternoons. And whether you’re looking to relax or explore, Black Orchid Resort can fulfill your needs.
