Belize is a country that’s part of Central America, along the Caribbean Sea. It borders just two countries – Guatemala to the southwest and Mexico to the north. Belize is the only country in Central America to not share a coastline along the North Pacific Ocean.

Not only does Belize have the lowest population, but it also has the lowest population density in Central America. The capital city of Belize is Belmopan. But Belize City is the largest in the nation.

Belize occupies an area of 22,970 square kilometers (8,867 sq mi). Although its mainland is about 290 x 110 km in size, it also contains over 450 islands along the east coast. This includes the Belize Barrier Reef which extends toward Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras. This makes it the longest barrier reef in the Northern and Western Hemispheres.

The Caribbean Sea shorelines are to the east. Whereas dense jungle is characteristic of the western region. This stark contrast between the coastal beauty and the lush wilderness showcases the remarkable diversity of Belize’s natural wonders.
