Belize! The only English speaking country in Central America. With its ancient Mayan and more recent British-ruled history, Belize is a culturally diverse country located on the north eastern coast of Central America. With Mexico to the north, Guatemala to the south and west, the Caribbean Sea to the east, Belize's plentiful rainforests, sandy beaches and tropical weather year-round is truly Mother Nature's Best Kept Secret

Immerse yourself in the day-to-day culture of school teachers in Belize and join in 'Child Stimulation Month' celebrations that culminate in a parade showcasing the year's theme.
