Belize: Bountiful

Throw a rock in Belize and you’ll probably hit a Maya site. Some estimate there are 900 yet to be excavated. The Maya are known to have been present in Belize since 2000BC. They lived in coastal swamps, inhabited cayes, exploited the mountains, traded on rivers, and held ceremonies (sometimes sacrificial) in caves.

Today, the country is a bevy of gorgeous beaches, diverse cultural expression, and a variety of recipes and styles of food.
