• Capital: Belmopan
  • Largest City: Belize City
  • Language: English, with Spanish widely understood
  • Currency: Belize Dollar (BZD), 2:1 to the US Dollar


  • Please note that there is a $35 exit fee for leaving Belize.
  • Belize is widely populated by American expats, and was a British colony for many years, so English is widely spoken.
  • The main strength of Belize lies in its natural beauty. Diving and snorkeling are incredibly popular activities, and there are Mayan ruins to explore. If you’re able, a trip to the Great Blue Hole is essential.
  • Most beaches, as of April 2019, were highly congested with sargasso seaweed. I would recommend traveling to Secret Beach in Ambergris Key for a proper beach experience.
