Nicknamed the "Garden City" thanks to its planned urban parklands, Belmopan serves as the capital of Belize and a launching point for tours of nearby caves and Mayan ruins. Established in the 1960s, after a hurricane damaged former capital Belize City, this purpose-built town may seem a bit drab and unappealing at first glance. Yet a leisurely tour of Belmopan reveals a thriving commercial center, a major hub of transportation, and a lively university city with a good range of shopping and dining options. If you'd rather spend your Belmopan holiday searching for outdoor adventures, get out of town and split your time between horseback riding, cycling, hiking through jungles, cave spelunking, and bird-watching. Use our international travel planner: Belmopan and all its delights await.
