For families travelling from the UK, the journey is relatively
pain-free as you can get there in one day. Plus, Belize's small, compact size
makes it a dream to travel. But don't be fooled, this pocket-sized
country packs a hefty punch with adventures by the dozen.
Cradled by the world's second largest barrier reef, not to

Up north stay in remote rainforest lodges and set out on safaris
to spot the elusive and endangered jaguar, while zip lining, horse

Families will follow in the footsteps of great explorers
uncovering this fascinating region on a family diving holiday to
Belize. Bragging rights included.
