It is beautiful. I lived there for awhile, and these would be my top suggestions of places to go:
Caye Cauker - an island off the coast, great place to relax on the beach with small town feel. Snorkeling or scuba diving on the reef.
Mayan Temples: Caracol and Xunantunich are the best.
Hopkins - great little Garikuna town on the beach.
Orange Walk - Great town surrounded by rain forest and mayan sites.
Also, make sure to go out into the rain forest, especially near the border of Guatemala. Go to the National Parks, Blue Hole National Park and Guanacaste National especially.
If you have more questions, please ask.
