If there is any justice in the world, one day mainstream tourists will come to appreciate what avid eco tourists everywhere know: Belize is an absolute jewel. The only country in Central America with English as the official language, Belize once went by the title of British Honduras. With that era now over, the country has become a leader in ecotourism.
Between North and South America, with borders on Mexico and the Caribbean, Belize has wondrous biodiversity. Although relatively small, the country encompasses a wide array of ecological zones that support a host of plant and animal life. A very low population density, especially for this region of the world, ensures few environmental disturbances at the hands of humans and certainly is a major gain for ecotourists. Armadillos, toucans and monkeys are popular animal attractions here.
