You will not only be struck by the country’s beauty, but you will also be surprised to know that Belize is the only Central American country which has English as its official language. Many natives of Belize know English, but Kriol is the dominant language spoken. There are many dialects to discover in this stunning Mayan homeland, such as Spanish, African-based Garifuna, Mandarin, German, and many more. When relaxing by the beach with your family near one of the chosen Belize holiday lettings, you will understand just how important a sense of community is to the people of Belize.
Although the people are from diverse backgrounds, the celebration of their uniqueness culminates into a commitment to preserve the cultural multiplicity of their beautiful nation. It is this beauty that folk artists, sculptors, painters, and artisans of Belize capture in their art by working with a variety of forms.
In the Cayo district of western Belize, where there are many Belize holiday lettings, you will find the Garcia Sisters. Inspired by their Mayan ancestors, the sisters run a museum and art gallery. In the heart of the rainforest with a view of the Maya Mountains and farmland, you can take a tour through the Tanah Mayan Art Museum in San Antonio, Belize. The Museum is a feast for your eyes as you begin to understand how the lives of Mayans shaped their art.
