Belize Travel Tips

Solo Travel in Belize: It’s Your Ticket to Adventure and Empowerment

By Belizing.com 12/31/2018 3 minutes

If you’re thinking of stepping onto the scary solo travel ledge, you couldn’t choose a better place to spread your wings and fly than Belize. Solo travel within this welcoming country is empowering and rewarding because you go where you want to go—and when you want to go—especially if you choose Belizing.com for all of your in-country travel plans.

How safe is Belize for a solo traveler?

What’s been stopping you from taking this life-altering step? If you’re like most people, you worry about safety and not being able to communicate with others because you only speak English. You can forget about both roadblocks. Belize is not only safe, but everyone speaks English. And, violent crimes against travelers are nearly unheard of.


However, the biggest safety concerns for solo travelers are dehydration due to the hot weather and problems related to excess consumption of alcohol. Because Belizeans are outgoing and friendly, solo travelers are advised to avoid unwanted attention and make their intentions clear and they will not have any trouble.


And if your only remaining excuse is feeling insecure about having to deal with multiple travel entities, that's where Belizing.com steps in. Traveling alone in Belize has never been this easy!

Why just one Belize travel resource?

Belizing.com works with the best tour operators in Belize by aggregating the top things to see and do in the country in one marketplace. Whether you are interested in climbing an ancient Maya pyramid or being picked up from the international airport when you arrive in the country, Belizing.com will ensure that you not only get the best rate for the tour or transfer, but that your tour operator provides you with the best travel experience in Belize.


And if the tour company cannot accommodate you for your requested dates, they will suggest alternative dates (or tours/activities) so that your time in Belize is well spent.


But Belizing.com won’t pack your bags or insist that you book specific shuttles, transfers, tours, and other amenities. You are in full control of your Belize travel planning. It’s your vacation, after all. So, now that you understand how safe, friendly and organized your Belize travel arrangements can be, where will you go with your newfound freedom?

Oh, the places you’ll go!

We borrowed that phrase from Dr. Seuss because we can’t think of a better way to introduce the benefits you will enjoy as a result of booking your Belize experience with an agency that meets the nation’s most stringent licensing requirements. This credential alone gives Belizing.com relationships with the best service providers, which is why solo travelers enjoy price breaks usually reserved for groups or couples.


Not only will this San Ignacio-based aggregator book you into transport you need to convey you to jungles, Mayan ruins, lush waterfalls, hiking trails and a long list of marine adventures-—like diving, boating, fishing and caving—but you’ll enjoy effortless scheduling that gets you where you need to go to engage in these activities.


And you need not worry about carrying cash to pay for your tours and transfers in Belize because when you book with Belizing.com, you can pay for all of the services with a credit card in advance.

Expect to return home a different person.

Did we mention the fact that just because you travel solo, you’ll never be alone? In fact, you’ll make so many new friends on your Belize journey, you won’t be the first person to announce: Why didn’t I do this before? The answer, of course, is that the secret to successful solo traveling can be found in the reassurances you receive from Belizing.com, your trustworthy partner.


You'll want to tell your mom that you’re so smart, not only did you optimize your in-country travel arrangements using Belizing.com, but your visit helped support the local economy and benefited conservation causes, too. Don’t be surprised if you return home urging others to try solo travel in Belize. It’s the ideal place to turn your life around in more ways than you might have imagined.

This amazing combo combines both an incredible cave and the ever popular Xunantunich into one action-packed day. The cave is, in fact, two incredible locations brimming with evidence ... moreof the ancient Maya. It is a 20-minute trek to the entrance through a lush tropical jungle. At the cave entrance, you are equipped with your helmet and light for a trip into the underworld.

You will enter a rugged first chamber that leads into several small side chambers before climbing up a rock fall to another chamber full of cave formations and ancient ceramics. After exploring the third chamber, you climb towards a natural skylight where the ancient Maya also performed many rituals. After a short break, you then begin the 1.5 treks back to the cave entrance. Following lunch at a local restaurant, you then continue to the ever popular Xunantunich before heading back to your San Ignacio hotel.

You must be reasonably able to walk and trek for 3-4 hours to do this tour.

The owners of Blue Tang Inn wanted a traditional sailboat for their guests that modeled the typical fishing boats in Belize. The 40 foot “Blue Mermaid” is made out of hardwoods found ... morein Belize, including Santa Maria, Bullet, and Mahogany. The traditional style and quality craftsmanship were maintained but we have added a diesel inboard engine, bathroom and plumbing fixtures and modern window hardware and lighting. The boat has a very unique style with its cabin shape and wide beam. It's a perfect boat for an awesome sunset sail.

INLAND BLUE HOLE BIRDWATCHING Belize is a birdwatcher’s paradise! As many as 587 birds have been recorded in Belize and, of these, approximately 20 percent are migrants from North ... moreAmerica. Every year new species are being documented. Eight new records were accepted in 2007, including the Crested Caracara, Canada Goose, and Spot-breasted Oriole. For those interested in exploring the diversity and beauty of the avifauna of the diverse habitats MayaWalk expert birdwatching guides will point out tiny iridescent hummingbirds, impressive raptors, and various migratory and endemic songbirds. One of the best places to go on a Belize birding tour is St. Herman’s Blue Hole National Park, a beautiful protected area along the scenic Hummingbird Highway.

This small park covers 575 acres and has two natural features open for touring, St. Herman’s Cave: a beautiful crystalline cave in the limestone hills and the Blue Hole: a clear sinkhole filled with turquoise waters, perfect for a swim. A series of lovely hiking trails over various landscapes take visitors into the jungle where the foliage, tropical flowers, and rainforest canopy are the feeding and nesting grounds for hundreds of species of birds. For those interested in finding out more about the amazingly diverse avifauna of Belize we recommend purchasing Birds of Belize (University of Texas Press) by H. Lee Jones, illustrated by Dana Gardner-- a must-have for serious birders. Published in 2003, this is the first complete guide to the identification of all to the birds of Belize and it is beautifully illustrated and complete with habitat information. Our birding guides will be equipped with binoculars and a spotting scope to make the most of your birding experience. Enjoy the serene trails of the park and end the day with a lovely swim in the Blue Hole.

Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave is a cave in Belize, near San Ignacio, Cayo District, notable as a Maya archaeological site that includes skeletons, ceramics, and stoneware. There are several ... moreareas with skeletal remains in the main chamber. The best known as "The Crystal Maiden", the skeleton of an adolescent (an 18-year-old girl), possibly a sacrifice victim, whose bones have been calcified to a sparkling, crystallized appearance. Recent studies, however, claim that the remains are male and not female.

The ceramics at the site are significant partly because they are marked with "kill holes", which indicate that they were used for ceremonial purposes. Many of the Maya artifacts and remains are completely calcified to the cave floor. One artifact, named the "Monkey Pot", is one of just four of its type found in Central America. The Maya also modified cave formations here, in some instances to create altars for the offerings, in others to create silhouettes of faces and animals or to project a shadow image into the cave. The cave is extensively decorated with cave formations in the upper passages.

Animal life in the cave includes a large population of bats, large freshwater crabs, crayfish, catfish and other tropical fish. Large invertebrates like Amblypygi and various predatory spiders also inhabit the cave. Agouti and otters may also use the cave. These and many other species are quite common in river caves of this size in Belize.
