Adventures in Belize

The fame of Belize as a travel destination has been built on the caye islands of Ambergris and Caulker, yet the roads less traveled hold the true cultural and outdoor discoveries. The dozens of tiny cayes lining the barrier reef further south are quiet treasures. The southern coastal and inland regions are more isolated and less known and are home to two indigenous groups. The Garifuna people have kept their culture and still live from the sea in a few coastal villages. Our documentaries, photos, and travel tips give you all you need to discover Belize by yourself.

The cultural highlight of our three month was a two-week period experiencing the traditional lifestyles of the Kekchi and Mopan Mayans community called Blue Creek. They  live on subsistence farms in the rainforest further inland. View our Documentary Pages.

In Belize, like sea-nomads, we paddled from island to island along the barrier reef, freediving daily for food (don't miss JP's story: "A Scary Shark Encounter"), and learning edible plants and other island survival techniques (check our Survival Section).
