Capuchin Monkey in Belize

Belize

Belize is a haven for nature lovers and dive enthusiasts, with wonders stemming from the world-famous Half Moon Caye to the intriguing Mayan site of Lamanai with its intricate Jaguar Temple. Zegrahm Expeditions Belize tours venture off the beaten path, with experts and naturalists to guide us every step of the way. Our cruises to Belize take us to the bird sanctuary of Half Moon Caye Natural Monument to search for red-footed boobies and magnificent frigate birds—and to snorkel among seafans and rainbow-hued fish—and along the New River, an excellent opportunity to see rural Belize. Our Belize tours ensure that you’ll capture unforgettable moments in this fascinating country, sailing in luxurious comfort when on the water and in adventure-ready vehicles on land.

As we exited the airport and wound our way through the narrow streets of the older parts of Belize City, our first impression was that of moldering wooden shanties lining the streets. Upon closer inspection it becomes apparent that these merely reflect a tropical existence on a hurricane-prone coast.
