How Well Do You Know Belize?


How Well Do You Know Belize?

Did you know that Belize was called British Honduras until 1971? (I didn’t even know it was ever British. Is there anywhere those Brits didn’t at least try to take over at some point in time?) Well now it’s home to some 300,000 people with British, African, and indigenous descent, as well as some of the world’s best coral for snorkeling and beaches for, well, sleeping.

But there’s a strong case to be made to not spend all your time lounging about on the Caribbean coast, and instead head inland to see this uniquely diverse country, with its reggae/african/latin musical tradition, unique towns, and massive Mayan ruins that will have you thinking, man, those Mayans were great at ruins.
