Sandwiched between Mexico and Guatemala is the Central American country of Belize. As the only Central American country with English as its official language, Belize is unique in many ways, particularly its melting pot of cultures. On the coast, you’ll find cultural markers of Creole and Garifuna, while inland towns are full of more Hispanic and even Amish traditions.
I have been fortunate to make two trips to Belize. An ocean girl at heart, the beautiful islands of San Pedro and Caye Caulker were particularly charming, as was the old fishing village of Placencia. However, it was the mountainous, inland town of San Ignacio and its unique Mayan ruins that really captured my heart. Additionally, my home base of Hanna Stables simply couldn’t be beaten. Below, you’ll find select images from my two trips to Belize.
