Belize "is not on the way from anywhere... anywhere else."

Aldous Huxley

A vacation in Belize is easy and affordable.

With its tremendous biological and cultural diversity, modern Belize offers visitors and travelers a great deal more than shady hammocks and tropical breezes.

What's more ...Belizeans speak English and it's a short flight from Houston and Miami.

Belize hosts North America's largest barrier reef, exotic wildlife, tropical birds, great fishing, it's close to the spectacular ruins of Tikal, ...and it's never cold!.

Belize's is a destination of easy adventures and pleasant surprises in a country that doesn't seem to know what it ought to be when it grows up. It's a land of wild jungles, pristine beaches, tropical mountains and ancient pyramids, populated by an eclectic blend of Blacks, Whites, Hispanics and Mayans. There is nowhere like it on earth!

There truly is a lot to do in Belize, but if your idea of doing anything on vacation contradicts the point of actually being on vacation, please take quiet comfort in the Belizean national motto:

"Sub Umbra Florero"
(I flourish in the shade)
