Doyle's Delight is the highest peak in Belize. It is 1124 m high.

The name Doyle's Delight was first used by Sharon Matola in a 1989 report.[1][2] The name is based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's book The Lost World (1912). The book has the quote "there must be something wild and wonderful in a country such as this, and we're the men to find it out!".
