Where is Belize you ask?

Belize, formerly British Honduras, is located just south of the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula often refered to as the Riviera Maya. Belize is on the North end of Central America and lies along the Caribbean coastline. Guatemala lies to its West and Honduras to the South. A very small country by population with just over three hundred thousand people. Belize covers a land mass of 22,960 square kilometers (8,860 sq mi).  The official language is English, making it an easy destination for English-speaking travellers. Belize is best known for its natural wonders, it has three of the four atolls in the northern hemisphere. It also has the second longest barrier reef in the world, and the Great Blue Hole, and over 1000 off shore cayes (islands) pronounced keys. Diving and snorkeling are big attractions as the water is crystal clear, warm and full of sea life. Belize also boasts the worlds largest Jaguar reserve, a pristine mountain range, savannah and rainforests. Home to over 17 Mayan ruins, Belize was the epicenter of the Mayan civilization! So, where is Belize, it’s right where you should be! Why not come and scuba dive, or snorkel from the beach at Tranquility Bay Resort!
