The Central American country of Belize is very easy for Americans to visit. English is the national language here, and American dollars are accepted. Belizeans are very welcoming to Americans—as two former colonies of Britain, American and Belize have a lot in common. Generally, people are laidback and happy to chat with you over a beer or a plate of freshly caught fish. When you’re not chatting with the locals, you can relax on Belize’s white-sand beaches. Or, you can explore some of the country’s unique historic sites, like ancient Mayan temple Xunantunich. If you’re a scuba diver, you won’t to miss the Belize Barrier Reef and the famous Great Blue Hole, the largest sea hole in the world. Belize has something to offer all of its visitors.
