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.
