WHAT TO KNOW
BEFORE YOU GO
Play Like a Local

If you're lucky enough to take a nap in a cabana, open your ears to the wildlife around you. You may hear warring howler monkey tribes in the distance, the squawk of toucans and the ever-present chime of crickets.

While Belize is home to thousands of friendly species, there are some you should take extra care to respect. Snakes tend to like to hang from trees and drop suddenly when they're feeling hungry or lazy, so be sure to look up. Wolf spiders are large but docile creatures — so don't get too spooked when you see their glowing eyes!

Some of the most vibrant life in this land is under the water. Head to the beach to snorkel among sting rays, play with bottlenose dolphins and find yourself fin-to-fin with sea turtles. Break open a coconut and sip its sweet milk while floating in the salty water.

BELIZE'S CUISINE
BITE INTO BELIZE 

Belize's cuisine makes use of Caribbean and Latin American classic recipes along with modern influences, cooking up flavors that are all Belizean.

Belizean Spicy Chicken Stew
A LITTLE EXTRA
This is not your average plate of chicken: Most Belizean recipes also include hot sauce for an added punch. Try jerk chicken wings over rice and beans or spicy chicken stewed in coconut milk.

Polynesian Pork Plate
TASTE THE WAVES
Belize's coastal location makes for a cuisine rich in seafood. Try hudut garifuna, an indigenous preparation of snapper over coconut milk, served alongside a plantain mash and cassava bread. Or grab a plate of barbecue conch tacos from a vendor on one of Belize's island beaches.

Belizean Salbutes
SNACK ATTACK
Salbutes are a tasty snack composed of a fried and flaky corn tortilla topped with chicken, cabbage, tomato and sauce.

RELATED PORTS

Explore other incredible coasts during your Belize cruise. Make stops in ports like Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico, Key West, Florida and Roatán, Honduras, beaming with clear waters and deep green forests.
