Situated in Central America and bordered to the north by Mexico, to the south and west by Guatemala, and the east by the Caribbean Sea, Belize is an eclectic country with various cultures and languages. 

Life here can be as adrenaline pumping or as relaxing as you choose-  we have plenty of heart-pounding adventures in our jungles and reefs as well as plenty of hammocks and ice cold Belikin beers to relax with. 

The country is divided into 4 geographic regions: the Maya Mountains in the south, the northern lowlands, the flat and swampy coastal plain, and the myriad cayes, islands and lagoons that fringe the coastline.

Known for its diverse biodiversity and unique ecosystems, Belize also has the lowest population density in Central America with 35 people per square mile.


Belize is home to numerous cultures and ethnicities including Creole, Garifuna, Maya, Chinese, Mennonite, Mestizo, and many immigrants from throughout Central America and retirees from North America.  This lends to a blend of languages, a variety of foods, and a unique rhythm of day-to-day life.

Get into the Belizean pace of life and join us here at Blue Marlin Beach Resort for your unforgettable Belizean vacation.   As we say here on the Cayes, “Go Slow”.
