Where is Belize?

Where is Belize?

Belize is in Central America, a tiny country on the Western edge of the Caribbean Sea, formally known as British Honduras. Belize is located below Mexico, east of Guatemala, and north of Honduras.

 

Blessed with many natural wonders, Belize contains rainforest-cloaked mountains, hidden river gorges, Mayan ruins, numerous wildlife preserves, some of the largest cave systems in the world, and the world's second longest coral barrier reef. For PADI certifications that rival Caye Caulker dive courses, see our scuba section.

 

Belize Myth Busting

Belize is an Island

False. Belize is a part of the isthmus connecting North and South America and therefore it's part of the Central America mainland. However Belize has many beautiful islands off it's coast. In fact we own one of them.

 

Belize is Located in the Carribean

True. Although many people think of the Carribean in terms of Jamaica, Cuba, and the Virgin Islands, the Carribean consists of the surrounding coasts as well.

 

Belize is in South America

False. Technically Central America is the Southernmost portion of the North American continent. So if anything you could say that Belize is in North America. Of course no one really considers Central America to be part of either continent.

 

Belize is part of Honduras

False. Belize was once the colony called British Honduras, but it is not a part of the modern day country of Honduras (in fact they don't even share a border). Unlike its neighbors, Belize retains English as its official language and remains a part of the British Commonwealth (something in common with Canada, Australia, and many other former Britsh colonies).

What's in a (mis-spelling)?

If you've been spelling Belize as Belieze, or Beleez, or Balize, don't feel bad. Here are all the misspellings we've seen so far: baliz, balize, beleeze, beleize, beleze, beliese, beliez, belise, bellize. Any way you spell it, you can't find a better vacation adventure.
