Belize has been part of the British colony for over 100 years, becoming an independent country in the early 1980s. Because of this, English became its people's official language. In 2007 there are about 297 651 prisoners in the region. However, throughout the year, populations tend to explode, as thousands of visitors flock to the country to go cruise in Belize or perhaps visit Tikal and experience the Mayan culture.
Sailing in Belize would not be complete unless you visit Rio Dulce, Guatemala. It runs about 30 miles, according to which at the end of the trail you can find El Golfete. The calm waters of the river serve as your portal to the Caribbean Sea and home to a number of manatees and seabirds. Rio Dulce also acts as a starting point for backpackers who like to go to Honduras or even to Guatemala. You can place your yacht in your boating docks, sometimes in El Relleno and Fronteras, and walk through San Felipe, the only city that has a footpath or road leading to the capitals. Also, you do not want to miss a visit to Bay of Honduras, which is very popular not only for its friendly people, but also for the many islands that make a perfect holiday. For example, if you're looking for some privacy, you can bring your yacht or boat to Roatan, the most developed in the Bay Islands. It features a very long ridge and an unspoilt beach, ideal for water sports, canoeing and kayaking. Utila, on the other hand, is the most ideal destination for those who want to explore the barrier reef but are not yet licensed divers. Getting certification will cost you very little. There are also several diving shops to choose from so you know that you always get the best deal at the end.
Stop your cruise in Belize with a bit of colorful history hikes. The ruins of Maya in Tikal give you a look at the culture that in many ways defined the people of Belize and Guatemala. Here you will find a large Plaza, a large building inhabited by administrative and residential palaces, ceremonial buildings and even carved altars. There is also the Great Jaguar Temple near the square. Quirigua, on the other hand, is a very small Mayan city, but is often visited because of the countless monuments of great Mayan leaders and gods who cover the entire area.
