One of the main attractions of Belize for families is its size. As one of the smallest countries in Central America, it is very easy to move from A to B and with English as the first language of Belize, there are no language barriers to contend with.

This wonderful country also offers a wide range of lodges and hotels suitable for families, many of which have sprung up over the last ten years, making this a well-established and adventurous place to visit.
