Belize has a long-standing reputation for being one of the most hospitable places in the world. With a rich diverse cultural and ethnic background, people of all races, religion and political inclinations are welcome in Belize. And now according to online travel publication Thrillist, Belize is one of the best places for American tourists to visit.
There are many beautiful Belize resorts to stay at both on the beach and in the jungles.
According to Thrillist, Belize can often feel like an even chiller extension of Southern California: diverse, laid-back, and always ready to eat some killer fish.
Thrillist describes Belize as a nice picture of what your life could’ve been if you had shirked all responsibility and went firmly for the “no worries” lifestyle (aka what you probably should’ve done).
According to Thrillist contributor Colin St. John: “When I went in high school for an immersion trip, the people couldn’t have been more welcoming, especially when they were passing us Belikin beers that we couldn’t have consumed at that age stateside.”
There is so much to do in Belize; from snorkeling around the Belize Barrier Reef to kicking back at a cozy village bar or visiting one of the many historic Mayan ruins.
Belize is also home to beautiful wildlife including thousands of species of birds, flora and fauna. There is something for everyone in Belize and with such a warm and welcoming people, who wouldn’t want to be here?
