Explore Belize with a Car Rental
Belize is a predominately rural country, and some of the best ways to explore the sights and sounds is by rental car. With more than a third of the country set aside as national parks and protected nature reserves, visitors can rent a car to make the most of their 2017 Belize vacation. Having your own set of wheels gives visitors the opportunity to see Belize at their own pace, exploring side roads and marveling at spectacular panoramas of unspoiled nature.
Here are a few exciting places you can visit with a car in Belize:
San Ignacio Town
With its popular open air market, San Ignacio is the eco-tourism capital of Belize. Located in the country’s western Cayo District, San Ignacio is the perfect starting point to exploring the nearby mountains, forests, waterfalls, and caves in the area. Also located nearby are the ancient Maya ruins of Cahal Pech, once a city reserved for Maya nobles, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Tikal just across the border in neighboring Guatemala.
An idyllic fishing village located on the southeastern coast of Belize, Hopkins is home to a large population of the Garifuna people. Descended from African slaves who intermarried with indigenous Caribbean islanders, the Garifuna have preserved their unique language, foods, and music, making a trip to Hopkins a chance to experience this unique culture.
Known as the cultural capital of Belize, Dangriga is a colorful town bursting with energy and excitement. Many of Belize’s most popular musical genres, including punta and punta rock, emerged from the lively music scene in Dangriga. The town has a large population of Garifuna who regularly delight visitors with exhibitions and workshops featuring their unique drumming style and traditional music.
A 16-mile long peninsula of golden sands fronting the Caribbean Sea, Placencia offers visitors the opportunity to explore nearby mainland destinations like the Cockscomb Basin Nature Reserve as well as world-class scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and sailing opportunities on the nearby Belize Barrier Reef.
