Friends Become Family in Belize

If a study were to be done, I am sure the combined annual population of Ambergris Caye and Belize (including tourists) would rate extremely high for human connection and general friendliness.

It does not matter if you are a traveler, expat or Belizean, almost everyone has shared this common bond.

Where else can you go that as soon as you step off the plane you feel like you have landed in a real life tropical Sesame Street? The pace of Ambergris Caye life is slower within it’s speediness (always so much happening for such a small place) and most people rate a 10 plus on the friendly scale.  It is common for first timers to form fast bonds and feel that Island Charm.  It is also common for repeat offenders to experience the same in other districts. I know people that now include flights to Placencia on their trips so they can see “their brother” Tulu.

Friends Become Family

In Belize, bloodlines are not needed to become an Aunt or an Uncle and many of us have brothers from another mother and Seesters from another Meester – read with a drawl šŸ˜€ Many have “adopted” people or pets and taken them under their wing in some way. 

There are also endless cousins. Some closer than others but all are still considered family.

For most, traveling to Belize is like a big happy reunion – which is what keeps people coming back as often as their schedule and budget allows.

This country is a magical destination and captures the hearts of many, it is a place a place where friends become family.
