If we only had 2 weeks: Belize itinerary

We know that spending a huge amount of time in each country you visit in order to see everything and anything is not always possible, especially if you only have a 2-week chunk of holiday from a full-time job back home. We are often asked by people who only have a 2 week holiday from their jobs where we would prioritise in the given time. So behold! Here is our 2 weeks Belize itinerary for anyone who is tight on time but still wants to soak up the best that this incredible country has to offer.

Luckily, we’d say Belize is one of the few countries in Latin America that doesn’t need months and months of travel to explore everything. 2 weeks in Belize is actually a pretty nice amount of time. It’s easy to get around by local chicken bus (don’t forget to check out our survival guide to chicken buses in Belize), but when travelling on the mainland by public bus you have to be careful to avoid Sundays. The non-touristy parts of the country more or less shut down on this day, though direct tourist shuttles will still be available for a significantly higher price.

For this 2 weeks Belize itinerary, we’re assuming you’re flying fresh into Belize City, but we know there are a lot of travellers who will be using this to plan their longer term trip as they cross the borders over from Guatemala or Mexico (and even Honduras if happy to go by boat!). If this is the case, don’t worry, with this being such a small country you can have a fair amount of flexibility in your route. Everything is connected, so just pick up the below loop wherever you plan to enter Belize.

Once you’ve solidified your 2 weeks Belize itinerary, be sure to have a read of our things to know before you travel to Belize.
