Summary "If Belize is known for one thing, it's diversity. The only country in continental Central America to use English as its official language, this former British colony is host to a rich culture shaped by its Garinagu, Creole, Maya, Mestizo, and Mennonite population. Today, tourists flock to Belize to experience some of the greatest biodiversity on the planet. This volume utilizes helpful maps, intriguing sidebars, and colorful photographs to highlight the history, geography, wildlife, and traditions of this unique nation. Readers can even try their hand at making foods from Belize with simple recipes!"-- Provided by publisher.
