Belize - World Fact - Hostel in Europe


Belize This little spot of a country is lying in Central America bordered by Guatemale and Mexico, but has always been influenced by European settlers. If you are an outdoor person, it will be a perfect place to relax with snorkeling, surfing, sailing or even golfing. The capital city, Belize city though, is mostly used as commercial hub, and is not very visited by tourist. But then there is so many other things to see. Sanctuary areas will impress you, when you sit in a canoe and see the baboons and birds arround you. Hostel in Europe Network
