Aaron in Trinidad

Belize is a place steeped in history, Mayan culture, and natural wonders. Well known for its Mayan archaeological sites, beaches, and coral reefs; Belize also has incredible rainforests that provide habitat for a huge diversity of wildlife, from jaguars and monkeys to hummingbirds, macaws, toucans, motmots and more. Join Aaron Steed as he recounts his recent trip to this northern Central American paradise.
