Before the world descended into lockdown madness, I was lucky enough to be travelling on the other side of the world, exploring beautiful Belize and Mexico. I spent 6 weeks in Belize and loved my time there. I covered a lot of ground, leant about the varied Belizean culture, honed new skills and volunteered for an eco project for a month. In this post I’ll offer a guide to budgeting for Belize, describe my route and must-see places and reveal a few more key lesser-visited gems!
Being based in San Ignacio for a month had many benefits, including being just a short ride away from Guatemala. It’s a well-traversed path and most travellers in San Ignacio are either heading to Flores or have just been there. I decided to use a few days off during my workaway to visit Flores and take a tour around the largest Mayan site, Tikal. It was a tantalising taste of Guatemala and it’s left me itching to get back to travel around this unique country.
