Destination Information for Belize

Belize is a country in Central America located between Guatemala and Mexico. The official language is English and the local Belizean people are very welcoming to tourists and visitors, making this an excellent choice of destination for adventurers. The country is covered with lush jungles and tropical rainforest, with excellent fishing, snorkelling and diving opportunities in the pretty reefs of the Caribbean Sea.

Those interested in history can visit the Mayan ruins, a legacy of Belize’s original settlers.
The largest city, Belize City, is on the country’s coastline with the Caribbean Sea and provides easy access to the airport, as well as islands offshore that are popular with visitors. The inland capital is Belmopan, in the central Cayo district, where you’ll find caves, rivers, jungles, archaeological sites and more.

If you’re based in Belize City, a visit to Old Belize is a must, offering an authentic experience for both locals and tourists, where you can understand more about the culture and history of the country.

With so much to see and do here, Belize is well-equipped for tourists. Hotels and guesthouses remain unassuming and do not detract from the charm of the small towns and cities of this beautiful place.

While you enjoy stunning white beaches, Caribbean seas and dense tropical jungles it is important you have received the correct travel vaccinations. It is recommended that you have received your diphtheria, tetanus & polio vaccines before visiting here. In addition, you may also need consider hepatitis A and B, typhoid and rabies vaccines depending on your travel itinerary whilst in the country. Although there is currently a low risk of malaria you will need advice on precautions and insect bite avoidances. Book a consultation with one of our specialist nurses and they will go through the risks of visiting the country and how to minimise these.

Infections and Outbreaks frequently change from country to country and by attending our clinics you will be given the most up to date clinical and safety advice from our team of specialists. Our advice to you often includes aspects such as:
