Why Visit Belize
Located just south of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and east of Guatemala, Belize borders the Caribbean Sea and offers the warm sea breezes, cerulean Caribbean waters and average temperatures in the 80’s year round.
Belize is divided into seven regions defining the different ecosystems or culture found there. From ancient Mayan sites in the north, stunning tropical islands which are part of the Belize Barrier Reef or south and west into the rainforest jungles, you’ll find Belize a perfect combination of several areas rolled into one.
Because Belize was a British colony and not a Spanish one, English is their main language; which means you can go anywhere within the country and not face a language barrier. In addition to its English roots, you’ll find Mayan culture, African Creole dialects and even some German influence. With little over 300,000 residents, you’ll enjoy the small town flavor in this exotic destination. Don’t worry about getting around however; despite its size, Belize has a well-planned highway system making travel throughout the country easy.
US dollars are widely accepted throughout the country with an easy and locked $2 Belize to $1 USD exchange rate.
What to do in Belize

There are hundreds of dive and snorkeling sites of varying depths featuring soft corals, sponges and over 500 species of marine life along with an array of colorful tropical fish.
