Belize is one of the world’s best kept secrets in terms of eco-tourism, archaeological finds and all manner of natural beauty. From the world’s second largest barrier reef, to waterfalls and mountain streams and its lush sub-tropical rain forests, Belize has something for everyone and is only a few hours flight from the U.S.
If asked where Belize is, few people could answer correctly. It is a precious find, for those few that have found it. Hugging the Caribbean Sea, it is the only English speaking country in Central America, bordered to the north by Mexico and to the west and south by Guatemala and is home to the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere.
Belize is an English speaking country located on the western Caribbean Sea in Central America and it is therefore in the tropics and can become very hot. To Belize’s east is the Caribbean, to its north is Mexico and to its west and south is Guatemala.
