But Didn't Know Where To Go (or) What To Do?
BELIZE Let's talk about that!
It's About the Location
Belize is a small country located in Central America (just below the Mexico Yucatan), on the eastern coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Geographically, it borders (to the northwest) Mexico, (to the east) the Caribbean Sea, and (to the south & west) Guatemala.
Its mainland is about 180 miles long and 68 miles wide and is roughly the size of the USA state of Rhode Island. In other words, the mainland isn’t huge.
To the east you have the Caribbean Sea and the Meso-American Belize Barrier Reef, the second-longest barrier reef in the world.
Off the mainland coast of Belize, are located three of the five Atolls located in the Western Hemisphere. With the Blue Hole being located in one of the three atolls (Lighthouse Reef Atoll).
To the north (of the country), you have flat and forested areas. To the south (of the country), you have the Maya Mountain range. Let's not forget, that the entire country is located along the second largest barrier reef in the world, with one of the largest cave systems (running through it), in all of Central America.
So what does this mean for your vacation? It means Belize has the best to offer for most vacationers (with the official language being English, and United States dollars being widely accepted). There is a wide variety of activities to choose from, anything from diving, to snorkeling, sailing, fishing, hiking, zip lining, cave tubing, horseback riding, blue holes, beaches, cenotes, caves-taverns, waterfalls, mountainous terrain, ancient ruins, marine reserves, national parks, and a local zoo, all just waiting for you. It's an ecological "theme park", right here at your fingertips.
IT'S ABOUT THE PEOPLE
It's About the People
Belize is home to at least 5 distinct ethnic groups – all of whom are very proud of their heritage. The official language is English, but many Belizeans who feel tied to their heritage, also speak a language typical for that heritage. Thus, many Belizeans are fluent in at least two or more languages.
Ethnic groups include: 3 Mayan groups (Yucatec, Mopan, and Q’egchi), Creoles (descendants of English/Sottish settlers), Garifuna (descendants of Island Carib & West/Central African's), Mestizos (mixer of Spanish & Mexican descent), Mennonites, Chinese, Eastern Indians, American, Canadian and Western European's.
Belize is often called a “melting pot” of cultures (for this reason). Belize culture is often described as an elegant latticework of different people weaving around and in between each other. Each ethnic group stands out separately and distinct, sharing their culture with one another.
IT'S ABOUT THE FOOD
It's About the Food
Food is one of the more fun aspects of travel. To understand Belize’s food scene, it helps to first understand the people. Knowing that much of Belize is occupied by distinct ethnic groups, explains the diverse ranges in cuisines found in Belize.
Local street vendors will often carry Belizean BBQ chicken, cole slaw, rice & beans, and tortillas. Women with plastic tubs, often roam the streets selling meat pies and coconut tarts. Mayan buffets include dishes which specialized in spiced pork, corn, and chocolate. Then you have the master chefs (who grace many of the upper class restaurants), filling their menus with Caribbean-Mexican entrees, to tantalize anyone's pallet. You can find an assortment of fresh fruit and vegetables, at local markets which dot the road sides.
IT'S ABOUT THE ADVENTURE
It's About the Adventure
A vacation isn't a vacation until you add the adventure. Belize is literally an ecological "theme park" for guests to enjoy. If you're coming to Belize to dive the Blue Hole, descend the shelf walls at the Turneffe Atoll, snorkel the Barrier Reef, swim with sharks, go deep sea fishing and catch fish the size of your small son, sail around an island, explore Mayan ruins, rappel into a cave, kayak along the river through caves, zip line through jungle tree tops, hike through a cave to see an ancient human skeleton, listen to Howler Monkey's, hold a boa constrictor, feed a jaguar, horseback ride through the jungle, canoe through a cave, rappel down a waterfall, enjoy cocktails & dinner on a catamaran to a sunset, climb 130' feet to the top of a Mayan ruin, rip up the jungle trails on an ATV, float through a series of caves on an inner tube, push your toes in the sand and sip on a rum punch....then this is the place for you. Belize offers you some of the adventures you no doubt have written down on your "Bucket List".
