Tucked between Mexico, Guatemala, and the Caribbean Sea is the tiny country of Belize. As Central America’s only official English-speaking country and still formally part of the British Empire, Belize has more in common culturally with Caribbean islands like Jamaica and Barbados than its immediate neighbors.
Belize has a greater quantity of Mayan ruins than nearby Guatemala, and scientists say there are many more yet undiscovered. Adventurers can hike or kayak through vast networks of jungles and enjoy some of the best jungle eco-resorts in the region. The country also sits along the second largest coral reef in the world, and is home to some of the planet’s best diving and snorkeling. Places like the Great Blue Hole are famous in the diving community, as are the islands of Caye Caulker and Ambergris Caye. Down the coast, funky beach villages like Hopkins and Placencia provide really unique, more off-the-beaten path vibes.
Locals call Belize “The Jewel” and they may just have the best tag-line in all of tourism “Gotta Belize-it!”. This tiny country sparkles with good times and if you are an adventurer, diver, or simply a sun-sea-and-sand type of vacationer, you’ll love Belize.
