Top 5 / Latin America

Belize is located on the eastern coast of Central America, along the Caribbean Sea. The country is home to a diverse natural landscape, Mayan ruins and historic landmarks. Add these spots to your list when visiting Belize.

 

Ambergris Caye
The largest island in Belize, Ambergris Caye is known for its water activities. The 25-mile-Along island’s main town, San Pedro offers visitors beachfront attractions. The Hol Chan Marine Reserve is also located here.

 

Blue Hole
Located off the coast of Belize, this large marine sinkhole offers prime scuba diving opportunities. It’s situated on the small atoll, Lighthouse Reef. The circular hole is about 1,000 feet across and 400 feet deep. If diving isn’t for you, there are snorkeling options available, too.

 

Lamanai Archaeological Reserve
These Mayan ruins are one of Belize’s largest. Lamanai translates to “submerged crocodile,” so visitors can expect to see images of crocodiles on the various buildings and artifacts. With inhabitants staying here for nearly 3,000 years, it’s the longest-occupied Mayan site in the country.

 

Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve
For a break from the beach and water activities, head to this nature reserve. Located in the Cayo District, the 300,000-acre reserve boasts protected pine trees, the largest waterfall in Belize and a large cave. It’s a perfect destination to explore on foot, by bike or on horseback.

 

Xunantunich
The ancient Mayan ruin was formerly a ceremonial site. It is comprised of six plazas and more than 25 temples and palaces. The site is located atop a ridge above the Mopan River in the Cayo District, near the Guatemala border.

Seek Wellbeing in Greece

The Greek tradition of health and wellness runs deep; travelers can find a multitude of therapies to meet their wellbeing needs, from healing spas, herbal therapies, hypnotherapy, massages and more. In Greece, the approach to wellness focuses on the “whole” and the ways in which the mind, body and soul interact. A state of balance is achieved through a good relationship between the emotional and natural state, which can be found throughout Greece at its more than 800 medicinal spas.
