Belize Vacations: A Jewel in the Caribbean

Belize is a small, English-speaking country just south of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and east of Guatemala, bordering the Caribbean Sea. After peacefully negotiating its independence from the United Kingdom in 1981, Belize has developed into the region's most peaceful and stable democracy.

Despite our small population, Belize boasts immense cultural diversity. Maya, Mestizo, Creole, Garifuna, Menonite, East Indian and Chinese people live and work together as one people, while remaining true to many of their traditional ways of life. For the enlightened traveler this presents a fabulous opportunity to explore the many different aspects of cultural tourism here in Belize.

A destination where culture and nature meet, Belize is also home of the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere, and provides spectacular diving and snorkeling opportunities along its coast and on the many offshore cayes.
