Divers find the world's second biggest reef in Belize.
This reef has played a dominant role in Belize's history and culture.
British pirates used the reef for protection as they settled the land
behind it. Eventually Belize became a British colony and that's why
this is the only place south of Texas that uses English as the main
language. Today, the reef continues to be the main attraction for
tourism, a major part of Belize's island sized economy.
Highlight: Most roads may be unpaved yet Belize
is the most expensive tourist destination in Central America. Our
favorite place was Ambergris Caye, an island where golf carts are
taxis and swimming is the main activity.
