- Caribbean Coastline
This coastline is home to the country’s best known feature - its coral reef which stretches the length of the entire country and is second in size only to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
The coast also has much to offer with regards to cultural and natural attractions including areas of tropical rain forests, rivers and lagoons – this ensures a significant niche in eco-tourism. The main regions along the coast are:
Covering the two districts of Orange Walk and Corozal, the north is home to ancient cities including the temples at Lamanai. Further inland, the region contains jungles, rainforests and coastal lagoons.
The journey to this region in the South is dominated by breathtaking views of the rainforests and the Maya Mountains. In Cockscomb Basin you can view the lush broadleaf tropical forests.
This region in the south is famous for its white sand beaches and brilliant blue waters – ideal for diving, fishing and snorkeling.
