Belize, the smallest country in Central America, is home to a remarkable array of biological and cultural resources.  Among these resources are the world’s second-longest barrier reef and an extensive network of Mayan ruins. Belize is largely undeveloped, and 36 percent of its land is in protected areas -- the largest percentage of any Central American country.
