Belize Travel:
Cultural Diversity and Ecotourism

Travel to Belize, featuring cultural diversity and friendlyness. Belize has been aware of its natural treasures and has been preserving its resources through ecotoursim for many years. Explore these secret gems.

Mopan Mayan Village Cabana named Quichpan Luum (Beautiful Earth) is ecotourism at its finest. Experience the Mayan language while visiting with a Mayan family, the original people of Belize. Tour Mayan ruins, learn medicinal herbs, skills, culture, traditions.

Jungle Huts Tours and Adventure Lodge is located in Dangriga on the coast. You can explore the reef and cayes. Off shore lies Tobacco Caye and Glover's Reef. Whale sharks migrate through the area. Dangriga is the "cultural capital" of Belize and Garifuna celebrations are abundant. Garifuna Culture is well represented in the area because folks of the Black Carib culture were compelled to settle in the District. Garifuna Settlement Day (November 19th) is a big celebration in the area.
