Topic Overview

This small country on the east coast of Central America features dense jungles, mangrove swamps, scenic mountain ranges and white sandy beaches. Just off shore is the Great Barrier Reef, the longest coral reef in the Western Hemisphere. The native population is about 200,000 and English is the official language although Spanish, Creole, Garifuna and Mayan are also spoken.

Deep in its forests you will find ancient ruins of the great Mayan Empire which flourished here for over 500 years.

The two primary cities are the old capital - Belize City and Belmopan, the new capital.

Tour Mayan History

The Mayan Empire flourished from about 350 to 850 A.D. before mysteriously disappearing. They left behind many awe inspiring city and temple ruins some of which are located in the jungles of Belize.

Tour Belize City

Another major tourist destination is the old city of Belize City. With a population of only 60,000 it is able to retain much of its old style charm. Notable landmarks:

This landmark features many small and uninhabited cays and sandy beaches and a few resorts. Excellent area for swimming and diving.

  • Ambergris Cay - Very popular resort destination. The southern tip of island is a marine national park, home to parrot fish, moray eels, and stunning coral formations.
