Nestled between the Caribbean Sea and the rainforest on the eastern coast of Central America, Belize is the home of a small and diverse nation.

The country, formerly known as British Honduras, was the United Kingdom’s last colony on the American mainland and still maintains strong ties with Britain. Tourism and ecotourism are major sources of foreign currency. Belize’s attractions include wildlife, Mayan ruins and one of the longest barrier reefs in the world. It also has the largest cave system in Central America.

The Belizean diet is both modern and traditional. Breakfast typically consists of bread, flour tortillas, or fry jacks that are often homemade. Fry jacks are eaten with various cheeses, “fry” beans, various forms of eggs or cereal, along with powdered milk, coffee, or tea.
