The beautifully diverse country of Belize offers much more than sandy beaches and a good Mai Tai.
On the East coast of Central America lies Belize a perfectly balanced nature, adventure and relaxation destination.
With the lowest population in Central America and official language being English, you can begin to see the Belize difference.
Belize was first developed by the Mayans. If you have been to Mexico, you know the beautiful, deep culture that the Mayans embody. In 1840 Belize was colonized by the British and re-named “Colony of British Honduras.” It was not until 1981 that Belize gained full independence and now stands proud as a melting pot of eight diverse cultures, including Maya, Mestizo, Kriol, Garifuna, East Indian, Mennonite, Arab and Chinese. As well as, a large number of global expats.
Each culture has their own unique flavour. One consistent similarity between cultures, is their dedication to the preservation of natural wonders, both above and below sea level. This award-winning commitment has made Belize a sought after destination for eco-tourism.

The Belize Difference
You may be thinking that a lot of destinations have those same activity options and you might be right. But, the difference with travelling to Belize is the accessibility of all of these activities.
Belize is a relatively small country of 22,800 square kilometres and split up into four regions. Each region offers something different from dense, lush jungle to palm shaded, white sandy beaches to archaeological wonders and Mayan Ruins.
Getting between each region to experience something completely different is very easy and accessible by driving or taking a short boat trip.
Because of its accessibility and laid back, peaceful nature, Belize stands out among destinations in Central America and the world.
