REEFS, RUINS, AND REVIVALS: BELIZE'S MELTING POT
Belize is home to world-class archaeological sites, vast rainforests and rich marine treasures.
Belize has a decidedly different history and culture from the rest of Central America. English is the first language of this small nation, reflecting its British ancestry, yet Belize retains deep historic connections among its many residents of Mayan ancestry, and is proud of its strong African roots among the Garifuna people. Belize also has world-class archaeological sites, vast tracts of intact rain forest, and some of the world's richest marine treasures.
