"Belmopan - an Interesting Area!" Belmopan by Bwana_Brown
Belmopan Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 61 photos
After spending five days and nights on the very popular 'Caye Caulker' and 'Ambergris Cay' islands off the coast north of Belize City, we were ready to begin the 'land-exploration' phase of our three week February vacation in Belize. Following a water taxi ride in from the islands, we hopped a mini-van taxi to the International airport, where we picked up our pre-arranged rental vehicle for three days of total freedom as we explored what the area around Belmopan had to offer!
We had not made any pre-arranged accommodations plans for this phase of our trip and, in fact, had no real idea of exactly what we would be doing. Although Belmopan itself is not rated too highly in tourist literature as a 'must see', we thought that there were enough attractions in the area to keep us amused for a few days. In the end, we had a great time as we rejoined the new friends we had first met on Caye Caulker a few days before! Check out my page to see how we made out with the Black Howler monkeys in their protected forest reserve, the unique Belize Zoo located in the middle of nowhere, Guanacaste National Park and the very scenic Hummingbird Highway as we travelled to the southeast coast! My 'General' tips include a map showing the route we covered in our rental vehicle.
