Tiny Belize teems with jungle ruins, sea life

The Blue Hole, which is 1,000 feet across and 412 feet deep, is a popular diving site along Belize’s barrier reef. It’s a large submarine sinkhole surrounded by a ring of coral and filled with marine life.
Despite its lofty appearance and elaborate decorations, “El Castillo” likely served as an administrative hub, not a temple.
Caye Caulker, Belize, is a laid-back, low-cost base for tourists looking to explore a nearby barrier reef.
The archaeological site of Cahal Pech is on the outskirts of San Ignacio, Belize. Even from its perch high up on a hill, Cahal Pech lives in the shadow of its more impressive neighbors, Caracol, Xunantunich and Tikal.
Once home to 150,000 inhabitants, the Mayan city now known as Caraco is mostly hidden in Belize’s jungle.
