Welcome to the High Commission of Belize in London
Belize is a jewel in the heart of Central America and the Caribbean. A peaceful, democratic, friendly country located below Mexico at the top of the Central American isthmus. Bounded on its eastern border by the Caribbean Sea, Belize is both Central American and Caribbean at the same time. Formerly colonized by Great Britain, it is the only Central American country with English as its official language. However, it is truly a multilingual society as a result of the over 10 diverse ethnic and cultural groups for which it is home. Its history and geography have allowed it to fuse the distinctive culture and rhythms of the English-speaking Caribbean with the Latin America flavours of Central America in a most inviting manner. It is a bridge between these two sub-regions to which it belongs.
