Belize is a peaceful, English-speaking country just two hours away from three major U.S. gateways. With unrivalled diversity unmatched by any other country, the Belizean people have protected over 40% of the country as parks and natural reserves.

Belize is a relatively small country located on the north east coast of Central America. It is known for its diverse eco-systems which translates into amazing coral reefs, abundant wildlife and exotic marine life. The country basically consists of coastline and savannah type jungle. The north is basically flat and swampy and the south is mountainous. The climate is tropical in nature with a dry and a wet season.

The coastline, ringed by lagoons, boasts the second largest coral reef in the world after the Great Barrier Reef. It is an area which is excellent for swimming on beautiful beaches, scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing and other watersports. Inland is known for its wildlife reserves and rainforests.

One other attraction in Belize is its Mayan history which peaked between 250 and 900 AD and which it shares with its neighbouring countries. There are several sites which can easily be visited.

A claim to fame for Belize is that chewing gum emanated from here from the gum of the Chicle tree!
