Belize, located in Central America, shares borders with Mexico to the north and Guatemala to the west, stretching in length along the Caribbean Sea to its east. Composed of many cultures speaking a variety of languages, Belize, once under British rule, is oddly the only country in Central America where English is the official language. Although it’s a small country, roughly the size of Massachusetts, getting from place to place can take the better part of a day. So with an eight-day trip, we narrowed down our visits to two different regions, one in the western part of Belize and one in the southeast.
Central America shelters the best eco-tourism trips in the world and we will be very happy to help this kind of tourism to expand. At home, we mostly eat organic-farmed products to stay healthy and we praise fair business by buying certified coffees. We will be very proud to live in an environmental-friendly lodge that respects many important ethical aspects like employing local people.
