Venture off the beaten track with Cadogan’s brand-new guide to Belize. Authors Joseph Fullman and Nicola Mainwood explore this extraordinary country: its truly diverse society, made up of Creole, Garifuna, Mestizos, Maya, Mennonite, Chinese, Spanish, East Indians and Lebanese; the world’s only jaguar reserve; ancient Maya ruins; and its 200 offshore islands, called cayes. For nature lovers, the guide will take you to the best places for wildlife and bird watching amongst Belize’s 145 species of mammals and 543 species of birds, whilst historians are well-catered for with in-depth information about Belize’s archaeological sites. And for those looking for some action and adventure, there is a wealth of information on caving, canoeing, scuba diving along the western hemisphere’s longest barrier reef, and hiking.
