One week in Belize: The best LGBT itinerary for adventure and relaxation

Traveling abroad as a member of the LGBQT community unfortunately sometimes requires taking special precautions. Some of the prettiest destination countries around aren’t especially welcoming of gay travelers. And while Belize is still slowly moving away from its more conservative stance towards homosexuality, the warm and welcoming population, white sandy beaches, and vast and unexplored regions make it an increasingly popular destination for gay travelers.

If you will be visiting Belize in 2019, here are the most popular activities you absolutely must add to your itinerary.

Exploring Maya Ruins

Belize was the heart of the Maya civilization during their golden age, and many of their extant cities are remarkably well preserved and well worth visiting. Out of the dozens of archaeological sites open to visitors, the Maya Site of Caracol is the largest, and you could easily spend days exploring this sprawling city. Other popular Maya ruins to visit include Xunantunich, Altun Ha, and Lamanai.

Adventure Tourism

While there’s no lack of beautiful landmarks and gorgeous beaches in Belize, sometimes you just want to get out and get active. Belize has one of the most extensive cave networks in the world, and cave tubing experiences are a great way to spend an afternoon with a group of friends or that special someone.

Adventurous travelers can feel the adrenaline rush with a black hole drop, but there are plenty of birding and hiking opportunities available as well. Actun Tunichil Muknal is one of the country’s most famous caves, but it’s an experience best reserved for the boldest and most adventurous gay travelers. 

Hitting the Beach

If you’re looking to spend the holidays in Belize, chances are that you plan on spending some time at the beaches. Belize is home to some of the most gorgeous sand and sea in the world, and there are a number of gay resorts and hotels where you can kick back, relax, and maybe find someone special for your time away from the real world.

Belize is absolutely brimming with beautiful beaches, and the comparative lack of tourism and strong efforts to preserve the natural land means that finding a stretch of secluded beach is rarely too difficult. Then there’s the Belize Barrier Reef, which offers some of the most breathtaking opportunities for snorkeling and scuba diving in the world. It’s home to dozens of types of coral and hundreds of varieties of tropical fish.
