Belize UNESCO has registered 1 site on the World Heritage list and 0 on the tentative list.
Some places are so interesting that it’s relevant to keep them for future generations. This is why UNESCO has built a list of crucial classified properties in which superb places stand out for their aesthetic, natural, artistic, or cultural significance.
More than a thousand places are registered as Unesco’s World Heritage worldwide. Due to my interest in visiting World Heritage sites, I compiled the UNESCO list in Belize and the corresponding map.

- The Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the Caribbean Sea off the coast of Belize. It is the largest barrier reef system in the northern hemisphere and is home to a diverse range of marine life, including over 500 species of fish and over 100 species of coral. The site also includes mangrove forests, seagrass beds, and over 1,400 cayes (small islands). The reef system is an important economic resource for Belize, supporting industries such as fishing and tourism, and plays a critical role in protecting the country’s coast from storms and erosion.
UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Belize have protected places for their cultural and natural importance.
Belize has no properties inscribed on the Tentative List.
