Top Belize Stories You May Have Missed This Week

The Belize Hub Team shares with you the top Belize stories that are making headlines on the Internet for this week.

Back From Belize, And Refreshed!

Living in such a fast-paced world, it is incredibly necessary to take that time to step back to reflect, explore, and re-charge. I had the opportunity to do so during the latter part of August as I visited Belize for 18 days. I used the time to be as offline as possible, although I did post some photos every now on Instagram when I caught WiFi. It was a time to be with my family and really explore the country in a way I had not prior.

Tourist Guide to Caye Caulker, Belize

The Caribbean is teaming with islands. If you are thinking of spending your vacation in the Caribbean, how will you know which island you should choose to stay in? Caye Caulker is a small coral island in the Caribbean off the coast of Belize. It is about 8 kilometers north to south. The town found on the island is called Caye Caulker Village.

Diving in Belize with Whale Sharks

Whale sharks are intelligent, gentle giants that migrate into the Caribbean waters of Belize from April to June. Snappers (dog snapper, mutton snapper, cubera snapper, etc) spawn in great numbers off Belize during these months, usually during the full moon periods, attracting the hungry whale sharks that feed at night. It is often a hit-and-miss when guessing their arrival.

10 Things You Need to Know About The Battle of St George’s Caye

Every year on September 10th Belize celebrates St. Georges Caye Day, the day that a heroic crew of British settlers, buccaneers and liberated slaves defeated the Spaniards from occupying the territory of Belize.

Many people in Belize and the world might not know or understand the significance of this day; thus, we decided to compile 10 important facts that you need to know of the Battle of St. George’s Caye.

Hawkesworth Bridge

The Hawkesworth bridge was opened on Saturday August 20th 1949 and was named after the late Sir Edward Gerald Hawkesworth, former governor of Britsh Honduras. The type of bridge was decided based on the fact of very high flooding and that the River was used to float logs downstream.

September is a Celebration of Patriotism in Belize

Belize celebrates two important events in September, St Georges Caye Day and Independence Day. St George’s Caye Day is celebrated on September 10 and commemorates the victory of the Baymen who won the battle that took place on September 10, 1798 between military forces from Mexico in an attempt to assert Spanish claims to present-day Belize.

Belize Time!

What a beautiful place we live in. Not very many countries in the world can brag of being recognised in two regional areas – Central America and the Caribbean. People come here. People are hearing more and more about Belize; people are more and more recognising our geographical place on the world map – they are not thinking Africa and Asia anymore. People know where we are.

“When the Boat Comes In” in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize.

Before I start today’s edition I’d like to make a few comments about an edition I published a few months ago entitled “Come Fly With Me“. In this edition I wrote about a dispute between Tropic Air and Construction Depot over a strip of land close to the San Pedro airstrip.

Belize is a Retiree-Friendly Nation in the World

A recent article on The Huffington Post lists Belize as a friendly country to retire thanks to its Qualified Retirement Program (QRP) which exempts retirees from import duties and income taxes.
