About Belize District

 

Belize District is situated in the northeast of Belize. It borders the Corozal District to the north, the Orange Walk District to the west, and the Stann Creek and Cayo Districts to the south. Belize District is the most populated district in Belize.

The eastside of Belize faces the jaw-dropping crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. Most tourists to the area come to enjoy world class diving, snorkelling, and sailing around the picturesque mangrove and white sand islands. 

There are 450 islands (cayes) such as Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker, Laughingbird Caye, and Hunting Caye, surrounded by coral reefs, rays, tropical fish, dolphins, and turtles.

For the adventurous business delegates, the water activities around the barrier reef are spectacular. The grandfather of scuba diving, Jacques Cousteau, famously quoted that the Great Blue Hole is one of the most incredible dive sites in the world.  The north and south of mainland Belize District are ideal for booking guided explorations of the national parks, caves, rapids, and jungle ziplining courses. Top things to see and do include:

  • Bamboo rafting, cave tubing, or cave kayaking around the River Wallace and hiking in the rainforest
  • Crocodile night safari at the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary (ACES)
  • Sightseeing the Altun Ha Mayan temples
  • Marvelling at a mountain lion, jaguar, ocelot, and other native animals at Belize Zoo
