In Belize, the official language is English. Although many languages are spoken, you don’t need to brush up on Spanish to function well. Currency conversion is also simple as 1 USD equals around $2 BZ, and U.S. dollars can be used for many purchases.

Food

 

One of the best aspects of eating in Belize is the fact that many of the foods are locally grown or produced. Seafood is a large part of the diet, and you will likely get to try a variety of fish and crustaceans.

Beaches

 

While in Central America, you’re bound to be drawn to the beach at some point. Areas such as Placencia and Hopkins offer some of the most tranquil and most beautiful beaches around.
