The following places are in no way ‘off the beaten track’. More so ‘don’t miss’ or ‘tick it off your list’ places. Tourist crowds are pretty much guaranteed.
There are two main places people go depending on what you want. San Juan has a bunch of yoga, chilling, health foods and relaxing vibes while San Pedro is more so fiesta, siesta then fiesta again.
Admittedly, Belize was the country I spent the least amount of time in (for the rainy season rather than it not being amazing).
Caye Caulker is a little slice of heaven. The locals walk around singing reggae, dancing and offering you joints. Enjoy the slow pace reggae jive, the cheap lobster and the beautiful diving!
A whole underwater world is waiting to be explored here. An on land the is a whole lot of drinking, baleadas (Honduran plate) and Carribbean vibes. Whale sharks, too, frequent the dive sites.
My home away from home. Go for the surf, stay for the people… and the surf. I went there with intention to stay a week and left 4 months later.
Volcano Boarding in León.
I mean it’s fun, and it’s the only place in the world you can do it. Hike a volcano and then slide down it on a board. Not as thrilling as it sounds for the average person, but the record when I went was 90km/h. Think you can beat that?
Puerto Viejo de talamenca
Very slow pace, Caribbean vibes, relaxation and $3 cookies that send you into outer space. Yoga, bike riding, day tripping is also an option if you can be bothered getting out of your hammock.
Monkeys, surf and whales in a small(ish) cove. Need I say more?
