Belize Tours & Package Trips

From the forest to the coast, behold beautiful Belize with our range of Central America group tours!

Tucked between Mexico and Guatemala on the Caribbean coast is the tiny nation of Belize, renowned for its fabulously laid-back atmosphere. With idyllic offshore islands, beautiful beaches and the second largest barrier reef in the world, Belize is a mecca for sun worshippers, divers and snorkellers alike.

Belize is also far more reminiscent of the Caribbean than Central America and is heavily influenced by its Afro-Caribbean roots, with a love for rice and beans and a chilled attitude to life. It may be small but with diverse cultures, steamy jungles and genuine adventure activities, Belize packs a mighty punch.

Our tours to Belize combine the nation with neighbouring Guatemala, as well as Nicaragua and El Salvador. Taking in the tropical jungles of the Cayo district near San Ignacio, they are a perfect introduction to the region.

Belize Group Tours

In Central America, we offer a selection of multi-country tours encompassing the entire region, from Mexico down to Panama. Our Belize tours combine this exciting country with its neighbours, including Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua. Travelling in a small group of like-minded travellers, you will be escorted by a qualified tour leader throughout your trip, staying in well-located 3-4 star hotels and with all manner of included sightseeing and activities.

Ruins & Reef - The Second Largest Barrier Reef in the World

What this enchanting country lacks in size, it certainly makes up for in attractions. Those in search of adventure can head to San Ignacio, where canoeing on the Macal River and exploring the vast caves and limestone terrain are highlights. And the spectacular range of rolling hills, peaks and gorges are fantastic for hiking. Belize's lush subtropical forests are home to ancient Mayan ruins and an array of wonderful flora and fauna as well.

The Best of Belize

From the tropical jungles and Mayan ruins of San Ignacio to the world's second largest barrier reef, blissful Caye Caulker island and the incredible Great Blue Hole, there are numerous unmissable attractions in Belize. Here are our picks of the best!

Xunantunich Archaeological Reserve - San Ignacio - Belize

San Ignacio

A charming town nestled in the Cayo region of Belize, the drawcard for San Ignacio is less the town itself and more its surroundings. Ancient Mayan ruins and lush tropical jungle await, perfect for exploring at leisure with hiking trails, canoeing, horse-riding and bird-watching opportunities.

Nurse shark on Belize Barrier Reef - Belize

Belize Barrier Reef

Second in size only to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, this natural wonder is one of the main highlights in Belize, best explored by snorkel or scuba dive. More than 500 species of colourful fish, sharks, rays and even manatees call the environment home, and the site is so important that it has been granted protection by UNESCO.

Blue Hole - Belize

Great Blue Hole

Another ocean-based attraction for you to discover - Belize really is a diver's paradise! The Great Blue Hole is a spectacular underwater sinkhole off the coast. More than 300 metres in diameter and boring 125 metres into the ground, it is full or unusual marine life, caves and rock formations. It can be unnerving to swim across this vast nothingness, but it's a once in a lifetime experience.

Caye Caulker - Belize - On The Go Tours

Caye Caulker

A tiny sliver of land off the coast of Belize and located next to the barrier reef, Caye Caulker is a true Caribbean paradise. The perfect place for some beachside R&R, it's also home to biodiverse mangrove forest teeming with life. The only settlement on the island is Caye Caulker Village, home to around 2,000 people and largely supported by tourism.
