Here is a collection of Belize facts to help you in your research in planning your trip. Check back frequently, as it's a growing database of information about this tiny but diverse Central American country.

On our most recent trip to Belize, we visited the birthplace of a Hershey bar. OK, not a Hershey bar. The Hershey Company of Pennsylvania, that feel-good all-American maker of silver-wrapped kisses, bars, and other Wonka-ish treats has long been under extreme criticism for continuing to turn a blind eye when it comes to its sources of cocoa, the raw material of chocolate.

The Belize map shows a tiny Central American country that is almost equally focused on its vast, offshore network of islands and atolls, the second-largest barrier reef in the world, and a rich, tropical jungle interior.

The famed Belize Blue Hole lies some 30 miles offshore from Belize City on Lighthouse Reef, part of the great Belize Barrier Reef system, the world's second-largest.

Where is Belize? It's a common question given that it's one of the smallest of the countries in Central America, and frequently overlooked.
