5 Places You Can Go in Belize With a Dirt Bike
Whether you want to explore the smaller roads and byways or simply want to truly go off-road to get to some of the most scenic and wild places in Belize, renting a dirt bike from Barefoot Rentals and Services is an economical and fun way to get around.
You will need a driver’s license to rent a 150cc dirt bike from Barefoot. But once you rent a dirt bike from us, where can you go?
Here are 5 places you can go in Belize with a dirt bike:
- Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary – Measuring more than 150 square miles (400 km2) in size, this gorgeous natural park is home to some of the last remaining endangered species in Belize, including the Central American jaguar. Cockscomb is ideal for dirt bike exploration as it is a mix of terrain, starting as a coastal plain along the Caribbean and continuing up to the eastern slopes of the Maya Mountains.
- Bocawina – Bocawina is a national park just a few miles from Placencia. Home to different waterfalls and an un-excavated Maya city, the most popular attraction in Bocawina is the longest jungle zipline in the country.
- Hopkins – Hopkins is a village in southeastern Belize that is most famous for being the cultural center of the Garifuna people. Don’t miss the exciting celebrations during the national holiday of Garifuna Day on November 19.
- Dangriga – Dangriga is often called the “cultural capital of Belize” due to its lively music and arts scene. Punta music was first developed in Dangriga, and today the town is one of the best places to see and experience Garifuna culture, heritage, music, and food.
- The Inland Blue Hole – After a long day exploring all the best that Belize has to offer, a refreshing dip in the Inland Blue Hole followed by a picnic is one of the finest ways to enjoy the country’s unspoiled natural areas.
Note: if you’re staying in Placencia, all of the above locations are just a short ride away, making them excellent destinations for a day trip.
