Social Conventions

Clothing and fashion in Belize tends to be quite casual, however, beachwear should not be worn in towns.  The population of Belize is very friendly and laid back and one of the biggest obstacles that visitors must face is adapting to “Belize Time” where timekeeping is very flexible and punctuality isn’t expected. 

 

Language

Belize is the only country in Central America where English is the official language.  Spanish is also spoken to some extent by nearly half of the population while regional languages include Kriol, Garifuna, Maya and Plautdietsch (a dialect used by the Mennonite population).

 

Religion

Roman Catholicism is the most popular religion in Belize representing 49.6% of the population.  A further 27% are represented by Protestantism and there are also Islam, Buddhist, Hindu and Bahai minorities.
