Things To Do.... On Ambergris Caye and in Belize
The Great Barrier Reef, longest in the western Hemisphere, shelters the best stocked light-tackle fishing grounds of the Caribbean. The water is warm and crystal clear ideal for a great variety of water sports, fishing, snorkelling and scuba diving. Get brave and do some parasailing. Take a scuba trip to the Great Blue Hole.
You should visit the impressive Mayan Centres, like Altun Ha and Xunantunich ... and bring along your camera for some memorable shots. Unauthorized digging is prohibited by law.
With more than 500 species of birds, this country is a bird-watcher's paradise. There are also numerous animals, which can be observed in wildlife refuges.
The extensive limestone system gives rise to really fascinating and unexplored cave systems, often with evidence of use in the dim past by the Mayas.
You will find a congenial atmosphere at clubs and restaurants with tasty food, easy conversation and tropical- style entertainment. There are cinemas in town. Village fiestas are frequent. Other highlights are the gala marathon St. George's Caye Day and Independence celebrations in September; Columbus day in October; Garifuna Settlement Day in November and the National Festival of Arts in November.
