Travel to Belize with Moon Guides

Helpful information about vacationing in (or moving to) Belize.

Discover Belize

If you’ve traveled in other parts of Central America or the Caribbean, forget them all. Belize is different: It is coconut shavings in your rice and beans. It is butter pooling in your conch soup—with a squirt of lime and a splash of hot sauce to make it bite. Belize is the hemisphere’s largest barrier reef; it is massive forests of giant cohune palms and prehistoric tree ferns, some amid ancient Mayan plazas.

Plan your trip with our helpful articles that tell you how to see the best of Belize in 10 days, make the most of budget destinations like Caye Caulker for outstanding diving and snorkeling, or learn to talk like a local with advice on speaking Belizean Kriol.

If you’re interested in moving to Belize, our Living Abroad author explains why moving to Belize isn’t as hard as you’d think and offers practical advice like building and restoring your own home.

Diving Belize’s Lighthouse Reef Atoll

The diving at Lighthouse Reef Atoll rivals that of any in the world. You’ll find the famous Blue Hole, Half Moon Caye, a historical natural monument and protected area with a lighthouse, bird sanctuary, shipwrecks, and incredible diving spots offshore, and plenty more.

Visiting Half Moon Caye National Monument, Belize

Dedicated as a monument in 1982, this crescent-shaped island was the first protected area in Belize. Half thriving but endangered littoral forest, half stunning palm-dotted beach, a red-footed booby sanctuary and popular dive spot, put this caye on your must-see list.
