Guide to Belize
Belize may be one of the smallest countries in Central America, but it packs a punch

“Belize may be one of the smallest countries in Central America, but it has plenty to offer. This country still maintains its native culture, a blend of Maya, Mestizo, Creole and Garifuna. English is still predominately spoken, although Spanish is slowly taking over.
The second largest barrier reef in the world meanders through the country’s turquoise Caribbean waters. The water temperature hovers from 80-85 degrees year-round, which makes for amazing diving or snorkeling. Staying on the islands of Caye Caulker or Ambergris Caye is more convenient to commute to the reef, less than one mile from world-class diving and snorkeling.
This gem of a destination has a total population of only 300,000. Much of the country is still raw and beautiful with rainforests, rivers, atolls, monkey grass and mountains on the west side. The people are friendly toward visitors and are often heard saying, “You better Belize it.”

Prince Harry had a very Belizean welcome, which was the perfect start to his diamond jubilee tour. He arrived in Belize on Friday, March 2, very proper, serious, well-suited and elegant but eventually captured the essence of the country and changed his demeanor to a more casual and festive one.
Prince Harry was visiting Belize as part of a Diamond Jubilee tour in honor of his grandmother’s, Queen Elizabeth II, 60 years on the throne.
“Wow, this place looks so relaxing!” HRH Prince Harry exclaimed as he arrived at the Lodge at Chaa Creek, setting the tone for what he and Chaa Creek’s staff described as a very pleasant stay at Belize’s premier eco-resort, according to Chaa Creek’s owner Lucy Fleming.”
