Water activities are a top choice here, thanks to its location near the Belize Barrier Reef, which is the second largest of its kind in the world.  Scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, pleasure sailing, and jet-skiing are all top choices.  On land, hiking and birding, sightseeing, dining, and nightlife are the activities that keep visitors busy in between trips into the sea.
