Landscape Belize

Although Belize is a pretty tiny country, it has a remarkable range of geography. The Great Maya Barrier Reef runs alongside Belize's coast creating hundreds of small islands or cayes (keys) and offshore atolls, they are perfect for diving or snorkelling.

From the middle of the country, stretching southwest into Guatemala and southeast to the coast are the Maya Mountains, a tropical forest that is home to hundreds of different species.

The northern districts include Corazol, flat terrain eventually turning into the forested hills and the wild tropical jungle of Orange Walk. This is agricultural country.

The Belize district is home to the Northern Cayes. These include Caye Caulker which has a laid back atmosphere. These cayes are famous for their diving and snorkelling.
