Belize may not have an opera house, but it more than makes up for a lack of high arts with an eclectic mix of cultures, traditions, and languages. English is the official language, but it’s possible to hear Spanish, Maya, Creole, Chinese, and Mennonite German as you travel around the country.
Sample itinerary:

  • Belize City to Dangriga, the home of the Garifuna people.
  • Visit the Garifuna museum and Pen Cayetano workshop.
  • Head to the nearby village of Hopkins, another Garifuna community, and learn how to cook Garifuna food..
  • Visit the Maya Center.
  • Stay at a Maya home in Toledo District.
  • Visit a Mennonite community at Spanish Lookout.
  • Visit a festival, concert, or holiday celebration.
