With more than 200 miles (350 km) of coastline along the Caribbean, Belize has more in common with many of the islands in the Caribbean than it does with the bordering nations of Central America. World famous for its fabulous tourist attractions, Belize is also a popular location for retirement living and investment opportunities. Long a British colony, Belize is an exotic country that is simultaneously familiar. English is the official language and . . . you can drink the water. With a laid-back lifestyle and gorgeous landscapes, most visitors rapidly fall in love with Belize.
The most common question that people ask is, “Where is Belize?” Before you can plan your trip here, you’ll probably want to look at a few maps:
