Located on the eastern coast of Central America, Belize is the only country in Central America whose official language is English, though Belizean Creole (Kriol) and Spanish are also commonly spoken. Belize has a diverse society, composed of many cultures and languages that reflect its rich history. A combination of natural factors—climate, the Belize Barrier Reef, over 450 offshore Cayes (islands), excellent fishing, safe waters for boating, scuba diving, and snorkeling, numerous rivers for rafting, and kayaking, various jungle and wildlife reserves of fauna and flora, for hiking, bird watching, and helicopter touring, as well as many Mayan ruins—support the thriving tourism and ecotourism industry. Many people do not know that Belize has the largest cave system in Central America. If you are looking for an adventure holiday, Belize is an ideal choice. It is an easy, quick get-away during a dreary winter season.
