As Jack explores the many drinks Belize has to offer, he finds that the rugged Central American paradise has attracted people from all over the world. But no matter where you come from or why you’re there, Belize always welcomes you with a cocktail. During his journey across the beaches and through the jungles, to ancient Mayan ruins and back to the city to partake in Carnival, Jack tastes some of the wildest cocktails to date, including viper rum. It’s made when a live snake is stuffed into an empty bottle, which is then filled with rum and capped for a year until the snake meets its demise, leaving patrons with an odd but tasty snake-infused spirit.
While Belize may have tempted Jack with its bizarre drinks, chocolate wines and rum-filled seaweed smoothies, there is something much more intoxicating along the coast of Central America, luring people in with their pristine white sand and crystal-clear waters — the beaches. From amazing snorkeling just an hour off the coast of Dangriga to enjoying top-notch accommodations and cuisine on Placencia Peninsula — the country’s most popular sea and sand getaway — now is your chance to explore some of Belize’s best beaches.
