"If the world had any ends, Aldous Huxley wrote in 1934, Belize - then known as British Honduras - "would certainly be one of them...Almost 75 years later, Belize still feels remote. It's roughly the size of Massachussetts, yet it has only a handful of trafiic lights...The country has the largest continuous barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere, one that's lined with hundreds of beautiful small islands, or cayes. The scuba-diving and snorkeling are world-class...A pokey trail leads down to a small natural freshwater pool, or cenote, known as the Blue Hole. It is easily one of the most beautiful spots I've ever seen: a turquoise swimming hole fed by a cool underground river and surrounded by limestone cliffs and deep jungle...The options for exploring are numerous...There are jungle treks and trips to Mayan ruins, river kayaking, survival expeditions, and rappelling and spelunking. We opt for a floating cave tour and spend the next day on inner tubes, drifting in the dark cool water for what seems like miles with miner's lamps strapped to our foreheads...Belize can still feel like one of Huxley's end-o-the-world places, its charms hiding in plain sight."
Dwight Garner, The New York Times
