Belize trip reviews
For this trip I would pack moisture-wicking/quick-drying clothing as well as a spare swimsuit. You’ll either be sweaty or wet most of the time so plan accordingly.

Eating and drinking
Intrepid believes that one of the best ways to experience a country is by eating! Whether you re sampling street food, savoring a cheap eat or indulging in a banquet, there are endless options to choose from wherever you are in the world.
Things to try in Belize
Belize’s seafood is undisputedly among the best in the world. A steady supply of lobster, crab, mussels and Creole-style fish stew should keep seafood-aficionados happy.
2. Hot Sauces
Marie Sharp s famous habanero sauces, jams and condiments are served almost everywhere – and with everything – in Belize. You can also visit this local success story’s factory in Dangriga if you’re nearby.
Served at breakfast instead of toast, these doughy delights often accompany bacon and eggs. While not good for the diet, they are delicious and you’ll soon get used to a side of fry jacks instead of bread.
4. Fruit Shakes
Street carts and cafes make use of the wide variety of tropical fruits that grow in Belize. Ingredients range from the usual suspects (papaya, lime, bananas), to sweet additions (cinnamon), to the darn right weird (seaweed shake anyone?). Either way, choose what you want in your shake for a quick and healthy refreshment.
