Take a vacation where you can recharge your mind, body, and soul.  The beautiful country of Belize is a wonderful option that offers rich history, culture, excitement, and of course some peace and relaxation. Once known as British Honduras, Belize is located on the northeast coast of Central America and next to Guatemala. The country became independent in 1981. Many people consider Belize as the Caribbean country in Central America due to the many influences of the region. English is the predominate language, but other languages such as Spanish, Creole, and Patois are also spoken. The temperature is mild, the beaches are breathtaking, and the sunsets are picture perfect.

Create a home away from home with these wonderful options that will bring comfort and peace of mind.
