Top places to see in Belize and the Belize real estate market. Belize is a splendid travel destination but you can also transform in a permanent tourist if you explore the local real estate market in Belize and buy a property here. First let’s discuss about a few attractions in Belize and we will end with some tips about becoming a permanent tourist by buying a property in Belize.
Nestled in lush jungle on the banks of the New River, Lamanai is the most famous archaeological site in northern Belize and one of its largest ceremonial centers. Lamanai means “Submerged Crocodile” in the Mayan language, and images of crocodiles have been found on the excavated buildings, pottery, and figurines. Traveling to the site is an adventure in itself. An hour boat ride up the New River provides frequent wildlife sightings, and the dense jungle lends a wild feel to these ruins, which are still not completely excavated. Lamanai was occupied the longest of any Mayan site. In the 16th century, the Spanish found a thriving community here, and the ruined churches reveal attempts to convert the Maya. The archaeological site features more than 900 structures as well as a museum with exhibits of pottery, obsidian, figurines, and jade jewelry. Highlights include the Mask Temple, Temple of the Jaguar, and the High Temple, which visitors can climb for panoramic jungle views.
A popular peninsula in southern Belize, Placencia has the best mainland beaches, plus some of the most amazing offshore coral cayes. The eastern side of the Placencia Peninsula is a long expanse of white sand beach. The western side is bounded by a long and narrow bay. The beautiful beaches together with the abundant, inexpensive accommodation, make it a great place to relax and one of the attractions in Belize.
A 16-mile-long stretch of golden sands in southeastern Belize, the Placencia Peninsula is rapidly becoming the eco-tourism capital of Belize where golf carts and bicycles are the principal form of travel. The eastern side of the peninsula fronts the gorgeous Caribbean Sea while the western side forms a mangrove-lined lagoon brimming with fish and other species. Whether you’re using Placencia as a jumping off point to popular destinations on the Belize Barrier Reef or simply as a great place to relax, the Placencia Peninsula is definitely a must see destination.
