Belize at a glance

Belize is a country dominated by different shades of blue; from the soothing teal of the sea surrounding Corozal and the mesmerizing ultramarine that encapsulates the Great Blue Hole in the cayes, to the endless expanse of azure blue skies, occasionally adorned with delicate white clouds, and the tranquil sky-blue waters of Ambergris Caye. As you venture into the depths of the ocean, discover the subtle lavender and soft grey shades within the coral formations of the vibrant reef systems. Beneath the surface, you'll encounter striking colours in the emerald waters of Tobacco Caye in Stan Creek, home to exotic reef fish.

Returning to the mainland, the colour palette transforms into a lush green paradise. Explore the deep, rich jungle green of the Cayo region, where verdant canopies create a natural wonder. In the forests, spot the calming moss green, occasionally brightened by the fiery red flash of a macaw in Chiquibul National Park.

In Nim Li Punit, located in the picturesque district of Toledo, the narrow grassy alleyways of this ancient Mayan city are a soothing herb green, beautifully contrasting with the grey blocks used to construct not only Nim Li Punit but also other Mayan sites, including the vast Mayan complex of Lamanai.
