Belize is located just below the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, and Between Guatemala and Honduras on the Caribbean Sea. Of all Belize’s regions, Stann Creek District is widely considered the country’s most enchanted. And most culturally rich. Located in Stann Creek District, Sanctuary Belize is just a short jaunt away from the charming coastal town of Placencia. A former British colony, today Belize is a stable and independent nation with a democratic government based on the parliamentary system. Belize’s population is small but vastly diverse.
While English is the official language of Belize, you’ll also hear people speaking Spanish, Creole and indigenous languages. Mingling in its cities, villages and towns, you’ll find Garifuna, Creole, Mestizo, Mayan, East Indian, Chinese and Mennonite people living together in harmony and enriching the country with a palette of cultures and traditions. But there is one quality shared by all Belizeans: a warmth that welcomes you into their land.
