Tours to Belize
One of the incomparable Caribbean pearls shining amidst its turquoise surface is undoubtedly the state of Belize. Its tourist attraction is very specific: crowds of people in need of getting from Mexico to the ruins of Tikal in Guatemala pass through it and are chosen by the most desperate divers in the world who want to dive into the famous Great Blue Hole. However, no one has canceled the snow-white Caribbean beaches with fantastic fine sand for the participants of the tour to Belize..
By the very blue sea
The largest city in the country bears the same name, and the history of Belize City goes back to the end of the 17th century. English sailors began to build it. The mouth of the Oulover Creek was chosen as the site for the founding of the city. Fresh water and proximity to the sea have become important conditions for the city to develop.
At first it was used as an intermediate point for the timber trade, and then Belize became the capital of the country. Due to hurricanes, the city lost this status in the middle of the twentieth century, but the government remained in Belize City.
For those who stayed on the shore
The main attraction that welcomes all tour participants in Belize City is the oldest Anglican church in the Central American Region. It was built at the beginning of the 19th century, and a little later a local prison was founded, where today the exposition of the local history museum is located..
A few decades ago, a film about the life of wild animals was filmed in the country, after which half-tamed artists were left in the hands of local residents who would have died in the wild. So, 50 kilometers from Belize City, a zoo appeared, which today contains more than a hundred representatives of the local fauna..
Great blue abyss
A sinkhole with a diameter of over 300 meters and a depth of 120 meters is the Great Blue Hole of Belize. It is for the sake of diving into it that divers from all over the world buy tours to Belize. Jacques Yves Cousteau has included a natural attraction in the top 10 diving spots in the world, and 100 kilometers from the coast is no longer an obstacle for fans of recreational diving.
Despite the undoubted danger that the blue abyss is fraught with, those who want to explore its abyss are not diminishing. The Belize barrier reef competes with the Australian one, especially since tours to Belize from Russia are much cheaper and make you spend less time on the flight.
