Three Places to Visit in Belize

Since 2005, John Sulzbach of Killingworth, CT, has managed a manufacturing staff of 25 at Astroseal Products. In his free time, John Sulzbach enjoys traveling away from his home in Killingworth, CT, and has visited Peru, Guatemala, and Belize, among other countries.

Bordering Mexico and Guatemala, Belize offers a wide range of tourist opportunities, including its white sand Caribbean beaches. Here are a few locations you should consider when planning your trip to Belize:

Actun Tunichil Muknal

After its discovery in 1992, the Actun Tunichil Muknal cave has developed into a popular destination for travelers. In addition to the natural limestone formations, visitors have found various works of Mayan pottery and stoneware. The cave is located about an hour’s drive west of Belmopan, the capital of Belize.

Caracol

Previously home to an estimated 150,000 Mayan citizens, Caracol features the Canaa pyramid, which stands at 143 feet tall. Located on the Vaca Plateau, this city has attracted tourists for centuries for its jungle landscape and various pyramids.

The Great Blue Hole

Created by a sinkhole in the ocean’s floor, the Great Blue Hole provides a unique combination of limestone and stalactites to divers and photographers. More than 40 miles off the coast of Belize, the Great Blue Hole began as a cave that later submerged following the glacial period.
