What’s on Your Bucket List for Travel in 2022

A new year is almost here. 2022 will be the year to try new things and have new adventures! A year of getting on planes again traveling to far away places. A year to sail away discovering new territories. What’s on your travel bucket list for 2022? Here’s why Belize should be at the top!

Diving on Belize’s Barrier Reef is incomparable to any place in the world. It runs 185 miles parallel to the coastline, making it the largest reef in the Northern and Western Hemispheres. The underwater visibility in Belize is up to 165 feet, indulging divers to see incredible marine life from all angles. Swim next to friendly moray eels, schools of blue tang, blue striped grunts, and silk snappers. You might even spot sting rays and nurse sharks. 

Sail away on a snorkel tour where you’ll stop off at some of Belize’s popular snorkel spots. Browse beautiful reefs at Coral Gardens as well as explore the underwater life of manatees, sharks, tarpons, and seahorses. After a full day of discovering these amazing waters set sail once again to observe a breathtaking sunset as it slowly dissolves upon the ocean. 

There’s so much adventure to be had on the mainland. Ride through the river for a wildlife encounter of crocodiles, iguanas, and manatees. Zip Line through amazing natural rainforest and float on a tube through Sacred Caves. Belize is known to have the largest cave system in the region. Explore networks of caves containing layered limestone and geological formations below the surface. Take a tour of the Altun Ha Myan Ruins or visit the Belize Zoo to learn about the hundred different species of wildlife that Belize has to offer. There’s so much to do on land!

Foodies will not be disappointed with the restaurant scene at Ambergris Caye. There are so many delicious places to eat in Belize but one of our favorites is Elvi’s Kitchen. Known as the most famous restaurant on San Pedro, Elvi’s lives by the motto “Where something good is always cooking”. Start with the Street Corn Appetizer, grilled and topped with key lime butter, queso fresco, and a little cilantro. Followed by Elvi’s Coconut Curry with your choice of fresh seafood. Wash it down with Elvi’s Special cocktail. A blend of coconut cream, vodka, Baileys, local rum, and a touch of Kahlua. 

There are so many reasons why Ambergris Caye should be at the top of your travel bucket list. Whether you’re exploring the water, finding adventures on land, or enjoying the freshest of seafood served in authentic Belizean style, there’s something for everyone!
