Not someone that like to rough it, yet love to explore the wild places I’ve discovered the secrets to Luxury in Belize. Perfectly situated to explore the jungle (search for the elusive Jaguars!) Mayan ruins as well as the blue oceans of the Caribbean.
Belize is located in Central America, and it is bordered to the north by Mexico, to the south and west by Guatemala and the east by the Caribbean Sea. We are a diverse country with various cultures and languages. We also have the lowest population density in Central America, with 35 people per square mile or 14 people per square kilometer.
Belize is also known for its extreme biodiversity and distinctive ecosystems. On the coast, there is a swampy coastal plain with mangrove swamps. In the south and interior, there are hills and low mountains. Most of our land is undeveloped and is forested with hardwoods. It is a part of the Mesoamerican biodiversity hotspot, and it has many jungles, wildlife reserves, a large variety of different species of flora and fauna and the largest cave system in Central America. Some species of Belize’s flora and fauna include the black orchid, the mahogany tree, the toucan and tapirs.
The perfect beach & jungle combination – In my opinion!
