Belize is located just under the Mexican Yucatan, and right above Guatemala. It is considered to be one of the six (6) countries that make up Central America. One of the biggest attractions to Belize, is that it is English speaking, and is the only country in Central America that where English is the official language spoken. This allows many US & Canadian Citizens to travel fairly easily to Central America, and be able to navigate around freely. Belize is just a two (2) hour flight from Houston or Miami.
Belize is a crown jewel carefully carved out by the British over three centuries, located on the Caribbean coast of northern Central America at 17°15′ north of the equator and 88°45′ west of the Prime Meridian on the Yucatán Peninsula. Central America is the isthmus that connects North America with South America. The country shares a land and sea border on the north with the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, a land border on the west with the Guatemalan department of El Petén, and a sea border on the south with the Guatemalan department of Izabal. It is about two hours by air from Miami, or Dallas-Fort Worth. It is a two-day non-stop drive through Mexico from the Texas border. The land border with Mexico is at Chetumal City. From Central America, Belize is a one day drive from Guatemala City, or a half hour boat ride from the Izabal Department in Guatemala that features the beautiful tourist city of Puerto Barrios. Belize is also located next door to Honduras. A two hour boat ride from Punta Gorda in the Toledo district will land you at Puerto Cortez, Honduras. Commuter flights connect Belize to Chetumal City, Cancun and Merida in Mexico, Flores City (near Tikal) in Guatemala, and San Pedro Sula in Honduras. To the east of Belize is the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic ocean; the second-longest barrier reef in the world flanks much of the 386 kilometers (240 mi) of predominantly marshy coastline.
