Belize, and until 1981 British Honduras, is a country located in the north of Central America on the Caribbean Sea. From the north it borders with Mexico, and from the west and south with Guatemala. This small but extremely interesting Central American country is often bypassed or treated only as a transit between Mexico and Guatemala. In my opinion, this is a huge mistake, because it is a country of great diversity in terms of inhabitants, culture and languages. In addition, it offers many attractions that you won't find anywhere else in the area or even in the world.
Diving enthusiasts come to one of the largest coral reefs in the world - the Great Mayan Coral Reef, which stretches over 296 km. The most recognizable and well-known place on the reef is Blue Hole - a round cave well entirely under water, 150 m deep. Belize Islands, especially Ambergris Cay and Turneffe, are instead a paradise for divers and sailing enthusiasts. Go to Belize is worth thinking about round trips or demanding cruises.
In Belize you can find such typical Mexican dishes as: frijoles (fried red beans), tortilla (cornflan pancakes), platanos (baked bananas), chuchitos (a dish made of corn mass with tomatoes and a piece of meat, wrapped in corn leaves), catrachitas or enchilados (both are tortilla formed into dumplings and cooked in deep fat, the first is filled with cheese and red beans, and the second is minced meat with cabbage and hard-boiled eggs).
Split Caye Caulker is a channel that divides the island into a residential part, which can be reached by water taxi from Chetumal or Belize City and the one that is only slowly opening to people. For now, work is underway to build houses and start a business. Apparently, in the less inhabited part, you can buy land at a good price.
The great advantage is the proximity of the reef. This is the most important attraction that attracts hundreds of tourists.
