Belize is a fantastic country, and well worth visiting. Belize is in Central America, and harbors the region’s last unspoiled marine and rainforest environments, and offers some of the most exciting adventure travel anywhere. Belize is also inexpensive to get to and easy to travel in. English is the official language, and US dollars are accepted throughout the country. There are enough incredible places to explore to keep you coming back for years to come.
Traveling in Central America can be a wonderful, relaxing experience. The pace of life is much slower in Belize, compared to what most guests are used to back home, so it is best to think of it as “I’ll be there in five minutes” when referring to Belize time. Not only is it a fascinating place to visit, but it is also easy and inexpensive to get to, and it is a great winter destination as it enjoys a warm winter climate. The population (about 380,000) is about the same as Tampa, Florida, and the country itself is about the size of New Hampshire. The society is multicultural, consisting of African-European Creoles, Spanish-Indian Mestizos, African-Indian Garinagus, Mayan Indians, and a few Europeans, North Americans, and Asians. Belizeans are, for the most part, genuinely friendly people, who lead a laid-back Caribbean lifestyle.
