Belize Vacations

Belize was once a British Colony, but today is an independent nation. It stretches along the eastern section of the Yucatan Peninsula and borders Guatemala and Mexico. At one time Belize was the center of the Mayan civilization that extended throughout the Yucatan Peninsula. There are numerous abandoned Mayan temples scattered throughout the countryside with the most important being "Caracol" which is thought to have been founded in 331 AD. Belize has numerous natural rain forests and is also known world wide for it's Unesco dedicated Barrier Reef and the amazing Blue Hole (a sinkhole off the coast of Belize).
