Belize Botanic Gardens is a must-see on any trip to Belize.  Within these 45 acres there are several miles of trails featuring a Rainforest Trail, Maya Medicine Trail, Native Plant House, Palm and Cycad Display.  Climb the tower that overlooks the garden and surrounding area.  Visit a traditional Maya House made from sustainably-harvested materials gathered from the gardens.  Sample some of the many different fruits grown here.  It’s worth the 4 miles of rough dirt road that gets you here.
