Carrie Simmons, creator and host of family travel documentary series Travel with Kids TV, says:
“If the lush jungles dotted with soaring pyramids and white-sand beaches abutting turquoise Caribbean seas aren’t enough, families will find the unique culture and warm, welcoming locals make Belize an ideal destination. We’ve been visiting Belize since 1992.
Our favorite moments include climbing Mayan pyramids at Xunantunich; gorging on lobster burritos on Caye Caulker, where the main mode of transport is bikes; spotting monkeys and manatees near Placencia; learning to play drums in a Garifuna village; tubing through caves; and diving where the ocean teems with wildlife, including sharks and stingrays.”
