About Belize

Diverse and Unique

Belize is a premier eco-tourism destination for those desiring a unique vacation experience similar to that of Costa Rica, but closer to home and where English is the national language. Its diverse geography, flora and fauna, spectacular reefs, comfortable climate and intriguing Mayan culture make it a destination that appeals to many people seeking a reasonably priced life style that also provides the major amenities they have come to expect.

San Pedro Town

Tourism has become the major industry in the once sleepy fishing village of San Pedro Town. While sport fishing is still a major attraction, and diving enthusiasts are ever present, general tourism has far surpassed these sources of income for the local economy. San Pedro's populace fluctuates during the year, with about 2/3rds of the island's 15,000 inhabitants located in or near the town. The populace of San Pedro Town includes a large Hispanic component, but both English and Spanish are spoken by San Pedranos.
