– Whether you’re headed off to dive the Blue Hole or to another of Belize’s marine reservations, you’ll want to be sure to pack sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat to protect your skin from the rays. Wear a rashguard
for extra UV protection while snorkeling. Additionally, a dry bag
or waterproof backpack will help keep your belongings dry while in the boat all day.
Visiting Mayan Ruins – Once part of the Mayan empire, Belize has many ancient ruins to be explored. Plan to wear comfortable footwear because extensive walking is in order. Light, loose-fitting clothing will be most comfortable in the heat and humidity, and of course, a sun hat and sunglasses are essential. A crossbody purse or small backpack comes in handy for carrying snacks and water.
Cave tours – Cave tours involve jungle trekking, swimming, and clamoring over slippery rocky surfaces. Wear a swimsuit and synthetic clothing that will dry quickly when wet, because you’ll be in and out of the water. This type of outing calls for sensible shoes; wear sandals with secure straps, or water shoes with good grip. A dry bag will protect your belongings along the way.
Lounging by the water – There’s no doubt that you’re going to spend much of your time lounging by the ocean or pool during your visit to Belize. Swimwear is essential, as well as a swimsuit cover-up to offer your skin relief from the sun. Take a beach bag or small backpack to carry your reading material and water bottle.
