Welcome to Belize!
One of the major cultural influences in Belize is that of the Garifuna people, who’s established communities along the coasts of Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala and Belize in the 1700s.
Tropical rainforests, Mayan ruins and temples, stunning beaches, picturesque mountains and a rich history and culture. This is only the beginning of what you’ll experience in Belize.
Located in Central America, Belize is approximately four hours from both New York City and Detroit, six hours from Seattle, five hours from Los Angeles, three hours from Dallas and two hours from Miami.
Many people believe Belize to be an island, however it is a Central American country bordered by Mexico to the north, Guatemala to the south and west and the Caribbean Sea to the east.
