elize is lo­cated in Cen­tral Amer­ica and it is bordered to the north by Mex­ico, to the south and west by Gu­atemala and to the east by the Caribbean Sea. Belize is a di­verse coun­try with var­i­ous cul­tures and lan­guages. Belize is also known for its ex­treme bio­di­ver­sity and dis­tinct ecosys­tems. On the coast, there is a swampy coastal plain with man­grove swamps. In the south and in­te­rior there are hills and low moun­tains. Most of the land is un­de­vel­oped and




is forested with hard­woods. It is a part of the Me­soamer­i­can bio­di­ver­sity hotspot and it has many jun­gles, wildlife re­serves, a large va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent species of flora and fauna and the largest cave sys­tem in Cen­tral Amer­ica. Some species of Belize’s flora and fauna in­clude the black orchid, the ma­hogany tree, the tou­can and tapirs. It is world renowned for hav­ing the largest bar­rier reef in the West­ern Hemi­sphere, the Me­soamer­i­can Bar­rier Reef.


Belize is a coun­try with around 36% re­serve ter­rain and 608,740 acres of marine re­serves, it is a sig­nif­i­cant con­ser­va­tion body within the Me­soamer­i­can ecosys­tem.

This bio­di­ver­sity is one of the main fo­cuses of sus­tain­abil­ity and at­trac­tion for Belize.
