Belize is recognized as a premiere tourist destination, but miles deep into the nation’s lush interior, far from the umbrella-dotted coastlines and luxury resorts, is a world of nature and ancient history. Belize was home to the extinct Mayan people and their technologically impressive society. Though they disappeared from history’s timeline in the 1500s with the arrival of Spanish imperialists, well-preserved evidence of their culture can be seen through stone temples, pyramids and artifacts. Belize is full of tall Mayan ruins, many of which are free for visitors to visit and climb—if they dare.

Belizeans take nature seriously, a reflection of their Mayan ancestors’ belief that man is deeply intertwined with the Earth. Over 2.6 million acres of Belizean land is protected under law. The Cockscomb National Park, extending across 150 square miles of the country, is the world’s only jaguar preserve.

Though Spanish, Creole, and indigenous languages are widely spoken, English is Belize’s official tongue. It is the only nation in Central America that uses English as its federal language.
