About Belize District

Belize District is located northeast of Belize, bordered by the Corozal District to the north, the Orange Walk District to the west, and the Stann Creek and Cayo Districts to the south. It is the most populated district in Belize.

To the east, Belize District is embraced by the stunning crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. This area attracts tourists seeking world-class diving, snorkeling, and sailing experiences around the charming mangrove and white sand islands.

Among the 450 islands (cayes) in the vicinity, popular ones include Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker, LaughingbirdCaye, and Hunting Caye. Vibrant coral reefs, rays, tropical fish, dolphins, and turtles surround these cayes.
