Belize is known for its lush rainforests and warm, tropical waters. Whether you visit the countryside or stick closer to the beach, the lovely South American country has plenty of outdoor fun to be had for all types of adventure lovers -- Grab your gear and let's head to Belize! The barrier reef off shore is second in size only to the Great Barrier Reef off Australia, and visitors can see turtles (both green and leatherback), nurse sharks, stingrays, and a variety of tropical fish, so it's no wonder Belize beaches are a big draw.
