The Hummingbird Highway: A scenic drive in Belize

Whether you have been living in Belize your entire life or have visited, you can agree with us that the Hummingbird Highway is the most beautiful and scenic highway in Belize.

Meandering its way through the jungle, citrus orchards, and impossibly small villages as it skirts the northern edges of the Maya Mountain range between Belmopan and Dangriga. Passing amazing jungle adventures, waterfalls, caves, rivers, that offers plenty of postcard-perfect views. The Hummingbird Highway is one of the four major highways in Belize. It connects the George Price Highway outside of Belmopan, Cayo District to the Southern Highway outside of Dangriga, Stann Creek District.

You cannot drive the 55 miles long Hummingbird highway without taking out your cellphone or camera to snap this delightful Belizean view, or even stop to post for pictures with an amazing mountainous landscape background. This alluring highway got its name allegedly after one of the engineers who compared the ups and downs of the road to a flying hummingbird in 1954, while others say it was named due to the abundance of flying hummingbirds found in the country. Іt was officially inaugurated in 1955 as the Hummingbird Highway.

He even recommended a great seafood restaurant near our hotel that was simply fantastic. Definitely would recommend Untame Belize to anyone traveling in the country,” said an Untame Belize past guest, Ava Henriksson from Philadelphia, USA.
