population of 230,000, which is comprised of Creole, Carib, Landinos
(i.e., mestizos), and Mennonite people. Belize is a popular tourist
destination because of its magnificent reefs, towering rainforests,
remote cays, and spectacular wildlife. Its rich history of Mayan
occupancy attracts history enthusiasts and archeologists from around
the world, while its official language (English) and friendly people
break down communication barriers that exist in other countries.
