Belize’s official language is English but while you are travelling around the country you will hear Mandarin, Garifuna, Kriol (English), Spanish, German, Hindi or Mopan Maya language. This is because Belize is home for a diversity of cultures. Almost all schools in Belize celebrate a Cultural Day where students from their ethnic groups wear their traditional clothing, display their traditional foods and present their beliefs to the visitors.
Belize is a Melting Pot
Belize is the perfect place to see different people with many differences, many dreams, and many traditions but with the same love towards their nation.
When you are visiting Belize you will not only see the different ethnic groups but you will also enjoy the variety of food prepared by the different cultures:
- Tamales (Mestizo)
- Caldo (Maya)
- Hudut (Garifuna)
- Perogies (Mennonite)
- Fry Jacks (Kriol)
All of the cultures in Belize live in harmony with each other. It is a perfect example for you to consider that it does not matter which color, religion, culture or other differences people might have–Love is the power that unites us.
