Tourism in Belize
Belize possesses a unique atmosphere and charm, alongside a very welcoming population of citizens who wear their nationality as a badge of pride. The country has a colourful past, having been home to the ancient Mayan civilisation, English buccaneers and African slaves. It has a diverse population and cuisine, with Belize being the meeting point between the Caribbean and Latin America. The architecture features a mix of grand colonial mansions, trading houses and rural thatch-roofed huts; and the natural landscape boasts many tropical rainforests and caves. Belize is the ultimate fusion between a rich natural and cultural destination, and this is reflected in its range of tourist attractions.
