#1 It’s a Tropical Paradise

Located just south of Mexico, and on the Caribbean Sea, Belize is a 300-kilometre-long, 100-kilomtere wide strip of tropical paradise (above). And it’s breathtakingly beautiful, with lush jungles in the interior, a mangrove lined coastline with innumerable channels and inlets, and sandy atolls just offshore, dotting the azure waters.

(It’s also easy to get there, with WestJet recently adding direct flights from several Canadian cities.)
