Why Visit Belize
“Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret”
Belize, often referred to as “Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret” has one foot embedded in the tropical jungle of Central America tucked between Mexico (north) & Guatemala (southwest) and another foot immersed in the Caribbean Sea (east), with hundreds of islands ripe for exploration protected by the longest living coral reef the Western Hemisphere. This makes Belize a unique location that is recognized as a Central American country and a Caribbean country. By visiting Belize, home to Belizean Dreams Resort, you get the best of both worlds.
Belize is a small nation with a little over 390,000 residents. Our peaceful country is rich with different ethnic groups including: Chinese, Creole, East Indian, European, Garifuna, Lebanese, Mayan, Mennonite, and Mestizo. All the people of Belize harmoniously co-exist to form the melting pot of culture that we are well-known for throughout the Caribbean and Central America. All cultures have their own unique native tongue, but English is considered the official language of Belize, making it easy for tourists to navigate our beautiful country. Belizean Dreams Resort is located in the southern part of the country and is home to Garifuna people of Hopkins Village.
For a country with a landmass smaller than Massachusetts, Belize certainly makes a huge impression. With 40 percent of its land protected in parks and reserves, it is home to a vast wealth of natural wonders: unrivaled diving, a network of picturesque rivers, secret waterfalls, and hiking trails deep within the jungle. We proudly boast that Belize is home to three of the four Caribbean atolls which makes Belize the ultimate diving, fishing, and snorkeling destination.
In Belize, we are mostly blessed with summer year round. Our weather can either be hot, hotter, or wet making Belize an ideal vacation destination to visit anytime of the year from any country in the world.
