Location and Size
Formerly known as British Honduras, Belize is located on mainland Central America with the Caribbean Sea to the east. The country is nestled between Mexico to the north and Guatemala to the west and south. To clear up any confusion, Belize is considered to be both Central America and The Caribbean- a beautiful fusion of the two.
With fewer than 400,000 inhabitants living in just less than 9,000 square miles, Belize has the lowest population density in all of Central America. To put that into perspective, if we were to directly compare the size of Belize to the United States or the United Kingdom, for example, Belize is a little bigger than the state of New Jersey, and would fit almost exactly into the UK country of Wales. The country is divided into 6 districts all with their own unique character, charm and diversity.

Belize’s Diverse Culture
If you are accustomed to a fast-paced lifestyle, Belize can take some getting used to… Belize has its own version of island time. “Right now” may mean a little while. “A lee while…” may mean later, or tomorrow. For some travelers however, this is a welcome change. Perhaps a siesta in a breezy hammock is just what you needed.
