All around the country, Belizeans make the most out of the four-day holiday to celebrate Easter in a way that visitors from America, Canada and Europe will partially recognize and partially find engaging and interesting. In every store window you’ll see plenty of chocolate eggs and bunnies, as well as the familiar marshmallow chicks and jellybeans familiar to Americans. For local Belizeans, Easter dinner includes familiar standards like fry fish, potatoes, and roasted meat but also local favorites like hot cross buns, tamales, garnaches (refried beans on a tortilla), salbutes (fried tortillas topped with cabbage and pulled chicken) and plenty of beans. The homes and shops use a combination of the usual Easter decorations but add lots of brilliant color from using the blossoms of local flowers and trees.

The melting pot culture of Belize offers many different flavors when it comes to celebrating Easter. Depending on where you are in […]

The 7 Best Scuba Diving Adventures in Belize

The abundance of marine life, the clear, warm waters of the Caribbean Sea, and the world’s second-largest barrier reef just offshore combine to make Belize one of the best places to scuba dive in the world. Below are the seven best scuba diving adventures in Belize: 1 – Shark Ray Alley Many years ago, local fishermen would clean their fish in a specific area above a sandy plateau adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef. Over time, this began to attract large groups of sharks and stingrays. Today, guides use chum to attract enormous rays and nurse sharks to the area, allowing divers to get up close and personal with the animals. 2 – Swimming With Dolphins Established on the island of Spanish Lookout Caye is Belize’s first authorized facility for scuba divers who want to interact with dolphins. The large, four-acre lagoon is home to a select group of dolphins. Scuba divers can swim and interact with the dolphins in a controlled, educational environment. 3 – Hol Chan Marine Reserve Just offshore of Ambergris Caye is a large split in the Belize Barrier Reef. More than three square miles in size, the area is designated as the Hol Chan Marine […]
