A study abroad program in Belize is a fantastic option for students seeking tropical adventure in an English–speaking country. Belize, often called Mother Nature's best kept secret, is a lush paradise. It borders Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula to the north, Guatemala to the west and south, and the Caribbean Sea to the east. Its 300 miles of Caribbean coastline is skirted by small islands, known as cayes, and the second–longest barrier reef in the world. Trek farther inland and you'll discover Belize's tropical rain forests, pristine rivers, ancient Mayan temples, and unparalleled wildlife. Over five hundred species of bird and an amazing variety of mammals and primates, many of them nocturnal, are found in Belize.
Along with the extensive opportunities to adventure off–campus during your stay in Belize, you'll be able to achieve your academic objectives due to the flexible curricula offered by your host university. Despite its status as the only English–speaking country in Central America, Belize enjoys rich cultural diversity with Maya, Creole, European, Garifuna, Mestizo, East Indian, Chinese, and Mennonite peoples calling it home. In addition, Belize is a stable democracy, which makes it a safe destination for your studies.
