Belize is located in Central America, neighboring Guatemala to the South and Mexico to the North. This country’s Eastern coast is bathed by the Caribbean Sea which turned it into a top destination for tourists all over the world. Belize offers a wide range of exotic destinations that are not limited to the sea sight; there are also beautiful mountains, caves, and amazing tropical forests. The precious heritage of the Maya civilization is preserved in numerous artifacts and the country’s traditions and cuisine are a living proof of the country’s cultural diversity.
The early inhabitants of Belize were the Mayans who started to populate this area around 1500 BC and dominated it successfully for centuries. The colonial expansion brought the Spanish explorers here in the 16th century, but there were also other populations that thrived to dominate parts of the territory: the Baymen, a mixture of indigenes and early European settlers who were generally referred to as pirates and the Yucatáns, an Indian tribe. In the 18th century, the Spanish allowed the British to govern the territory and add it to the expanding oversea lands of their empire. Belize was dominated by the United Kingdom until the 20th century. Due to this prolonged foreign administration, the official language of the country is English and the currency is the Belize Dollar.
