An International Incident: Espat and the Encroachers
For a few months now that the Belize/Guatemala territorial dispute hasn't been in the news. But, since the beginning of this year, it's been quietly playing out in realtime at the Western Border, on the very edge of Benque Viejo Town. The location in dispute is known as the Barrio El Juda area. That's where the Belizean, Jorge Emiliano Espat, owns approximately 100 to 150 acres of land in different parcels. The problem is that his land is right next to the Western border in the area known as the adjacency zone. Espat says that whenever there are elections for the municipality of Melchor, the politicians on that side use land as leverage to gain political support from voters.

Guatemalan Trespasser Says The Land Is Hers
Interestingly, the Guatemalan teacher, who Espat complained of as the chief culprit that has built an almost-complete house on his land, granted a revealing interview 2 months ago to a Guatemalan media house. Here's what she had to say on September 12th to the reporter who went looking for answers about the controversial construction on Belizean territory. We have that translated for you: Reporter: "We are informed that you are the owner of a construction that is currently underway by the Belize/Guatemalan border. Is it yours?"

OAS Has Pronounced But Failed To Act
Tonight, Jorge Espat remains convinced that he is being wronged by this Guatemalan national. He says that several months ago, the OAS did an independent verification to ensure that his property is on Belizean territory and that this was a case of Guatemalan encroachment. Here's how he explained that in our interview from today: Reporter: "The OAS was involved, talk to us about that confirmation where the location of the land." Jorge Espat: "The confirmation came about through the OAS and Guatemala as I understand had requested verification though the Mexican source and yes indeed the verification from the OAS came out intact."

Finally, Port Authority Charges Responsible Parties For Water Taxi Explosion
Tonight, more than 6 months after an explosion aboard the San Pedro Jet Xpress water taxi that claimed the lives of two girls - the Belize Port Authority has announced the findings of their investigation into who's responsible. A release this evening says that the boat master, Ernesto Delgado, the boat's operator, "San Pedro Water Jets International Limited", and the water taxi service operator, "Ocean Ferry Belize Limited" have been charged for negligence in causing the loss of life of Yamiri Guy And Kimberly Guy; Causing a vessel that was unsafe to be sent on a voyage; and, Attempting to send a vessel that was unsafe on a voyage.

The Crow Returns To City Hall
The crow returned to city hall today - we're talking about the crow - footing court bailiff. Reports are that he went to the city council's main office on Albert Street this afternoon to continue marking items - mostly office equipment. This is to settle the council's almost half a million dollar judgement debt to its former city administrator Candice Miller. Yesterday, the bailiff was at the works compound marking heavy equipment for seizure.

Boxhead Burglar Hides Identity
Very regularly on this newscast we show you surveillance video of crimes in progress - and, many times, the culprits are caught because of that. Indeed, these surveillance cameras are getting cheaper, sharper, and turning up everywhereand the criminals are taking notice. And that's what inspired one burglar to go for a new look: the cardboard box head. That's right - last night at Dollar Store on Water Lane in Belize City, a burglar put a box over his head so that the camera couldn't make him out.

Kyle Confessed To Shooting At Cops
The cops say he came after them with guns blazing - and today Kyle Chaplin went to court and pleaded guilty. In December of 2018, the 28 year old allegedly fired upon the cops, as they pursued him through an alley in the gang infested Mayflower Street area. The incident occurred on December 9, 2018. Four police officers responded to shots being fired in the Mayflower Street area and claim that Chaplin came after them wi9th a gun in his hand firing shots at the officers.

Stellar Students Shine on CSEC
The 2019 CXC results are out, and a stealer trio of brilliant Belizean students have performed exceptionally on the CSEC exams. Edward P. York's Alexis Guy earned the top spot and was named the Most Outstanding Candidate. Guy obtained seventeen Grade I's and one Grade II. Not far behind her are hers schoolmates, also from EP Yorke: Dayana Marroquin the Outstanding Candidate, attained fourteen Grade I's and two Grade II's; andAngie Matute who was awarded Most Outstanding performance in Technical Vocation in the region. We spoke to all three students today about their successes and how their teachers helped them along the way.

Corozal Has The Best CAPE Students
And Belize's high school students aren't the only ones who saw major success in their exams. Four Sixth Form students will be receiving Certificates of Excellence for their performance in the CAPE examinations. Corozal Junior College's Liyan Moralez is the Most Outstanding Candidate for his eight Grade I's and one Grade II.

Barbados Wants To Open Trade Route to Belize
The Caribbean nations of Belize and Barbados are making a genuine attempt at regional integration for the purposes of a free-flow of goods and services. Whenever the topic of a fully-functional Caribbean Single Market and Economy comes up, it is often met with skepticism, because there are always claims that one nation or another sets up artificial barriers to trade. Well, the Ministry of Investment, Trade, and Commerce, through BELTRAIDE, has been working with its counterparts in Barbados, the Barbados Investment & Development Corporation. That partnership seeks to introduce goods and services from that country into the Belizean market, in the hopes that Belizean consumers will embrace the products from their Caribbean brethren.

Is Tracy On Faber's Slate By Default?
The Opening Ceremony of the expo gave us an opportunity to talk with Tracy-Taegar Panton about the developing political intrigues happening within the ruling UDP. Battle lines have been drawn in the race for the Leadership Convention of the UDP. Panton has submitted her name as a candidate for the Party's First Deputy Leader. She's doing so without a slate, and her opponent is Hugo Patt, who is now a part of John Saldivar's team. So, we asked her today, if that means that she will have to join Patrick Faber's camp by default. Here's what she said: Reporter: "John Saldivar seems to be campaigning on behalf of your opponent for the first deputy. Does that by chance, or by process of elimination, force you to align with the Faber group?"

Belize Cautions on Military Influence In Bolivia Political Crisis
There's turmoil in the South American country of Bolivia tonight. This is after president Evo Morales was pushed out of office in what he says was a coup. Morales has taken up exile in Mexico while violent clashes continue in the streets between his supporters and the security forces. Morales's sudden, enforced departure created a power vacuum and today, the ongoing political crisis took a dramatic turn when - according to the New York Times - a leading lawmaker stepped forward and claimed the presidency.

Jamaican Play Adapted For Belize With Great Humor and Resonance
A new play is being adapted for the Belizean audience and theatre goers are excited about Jankunu Productions latest offering, called 'Saving Alligator High.' The play focuses on tragic circumstances which result in a school nearly being closed and its clearly defined characters present a satire of an educational institution held at the mercy of a community. Alligator High is located in an inner-city community, but the drama unfolds mainly in a staff room. It's a story of rape, teenage pregnancy, dysfunctional families and poverty told from the teachers' perspective. Here's more from the theatre company's rehearsal.

Why Anti Money Laundering Standards Matter
There's probably nothing quite as dull as 60 banking and financial regulators sitting in a room talking about international standards in combating money laundering, and the financing of terrorism. But that's what happened today at the Caribbean Motors Conference Room where the FIU hosted a Financial Action Task Force Standards Training.

UB's New Board Is Mostly Renewed

Candice Miller attacks CitCo with crowfoot order
On Friday, October 4, Supreme Court Justice Courtenay Abel handed down a decision in favor of Candice Miller, the former Belize City Administrator who signed a new employment contract beyond the life of the City Council she was serving under United Democratic Party mayor Darrell Bradley. Miller’s new contract gave her a hefty salary increase. The PUP’s Mayor Bernard Wagner and his councilors eventually voted to terminate Miller as City Administrator because, the Mayor said, Miller had failed to advise him and his team that they needed to file a defense in a lawsuit that was brought against the City Council by a sanitation company, Belize Waste Control Ltd. According to Mayor Wagner, the failure to advise the new council to file a defense cost the council one million dollars.

GSU storms house in Burrell Boom; shoots caretaker
The Belize Police Department’s Gang Suppression Unit (GSU) has been employing unorthodox policing methods from the time it burst on the scene with its officers’ faces covered with masks. The GSU’s new policing methods have come at a high cost to taxpayers in the form of lawsuits that the GSU has lost in the courts. Yesterday, Friday, some members of the GSU descended on a house in Burrell Boom to conduct a search, but instead of conducting the search, they ended up transporting the caretaker of the property to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for medical treatment after he was shot multiple times at close range with non-lethal rounds from a pump action shotgun.

From The Publisher
As I understand it, my great grandfather on my mother’s side, George Lindo, who had migrated to British Honduras from Jamaica as a young man, used to own a rum shop (or maybe more than one) in old Belize Town, and he had a hefty cash flow. He was rich in the early twentieth century, before Bob Turton made his, in the 1920s thereabouts. But George Lindo was a compulsive gambler, and by the time I began to have a sense of myself as a child, living with my parents at #7 Church Street in the early 1950s, George Lindo was broke and being taken care of by his daughter (my grandmother), Eva Lindo Belisle.

PLB regular season ends; 4th playoff spot decided in injury time
It went “down to the wire” indeed, as the final playoff spot in the Premier League of Belize (PLB) 2019-2020 Opening Season was only determined in injury time of a Week 14 game in San Pedro on Saturday night. This past weekend’s Week 14 games ended the PLB regular season; but the 2 games scheduled for Sunday had no bearing on the playoffs, while the 2 games on Saturday night were critical to determine whether Wagiya FC or Altitude FC would grab the 4th spot in the playoffs along with Verdes FC, Bandits Sport and San Pedro Pirates FC, all 3 of whom had already secured a playoff berth.

Anthony J. Chanona, J.P., offers his “two cents” on the citrus industry
Dear Editor, Please allow me to express “my 2 cents” opinion on your Editorial of Friday, November 1, 2019, titled, “GoB must assist the CGA and all small farmers.” Indeed, GoB should not allow the CGA to collapse into financial ruin. This institution was crafted into law in 1967 by luminaries such as Alexander S. Frankson and birthed in Parliament by the then Minister of Agriculture, Sir Alexander Hunter.

If OJ did it, here’s how he did it
No, there’s no white Bronco here; this is no story about a disgraceful foreign OJ who, if public opinion mattered, would have been strung up by his neck until he was dead. This here story is about a local OJ who, if he did what some philistines said he did with what they say Faber said, and the honor codes of old applied, he would have been put through the wringer, and hung out to dry. You see why some of us are driven to drink. Tideh day da noh like bifo times. The Belize Times “Belly of the Beast” columnist says that they broke some story about a drunken outburst from Faber about Barrow and the Barrows that was spilled by OJ. I can’t swear that everything they say da soh, but if da soh …

The big picture
When we take a close-up look at the so-called gang phenomenon in Belize, we find young men caught up in situations that are not entirely of their own making. Many are victims in a cycle of events they were born into. This does not excuse them from personal responsibility, but it forces us to look at the bigger picture of our social values and structures to see what circumstances created this phenomenon in the first place. Crime is an act of personal choice and an effective criminal justice system holds individuals accountable for their criminal behavior. Nevertheless, those who wish to prevent crime before it occurs cannot ignore the fact that the majority of people filling our prisons come from impoverished backgrounds and lack a formal education…..

Matron is engaged, married, and gives birth
It was only a small number of citizens who had the courage, ability, stamina, concern or civic-mindedness to take on all the problems that plagued our little country during the twentieth century, starting particularly during the Twenties. This was after the end of World War I, when those who returned from the front with a different outlook, resulting from exposure to the prejudices, challenges and experiences of a hostile world from which their distance had sheltered them, created a volatile and uneasy environment; but our older heads, priding themselves on their strong religious and civilized beliefs, persevered in their peaceful, tolerant and law-abiding ways to do whatever was in their power to improve their condition.

Editorial: No saving the youth if the state’s justice system doesn’t work
We are sure that we can all be better people. Belize is one of the five countries in this Caribbean project, and we are sure the workshops will produce/disseminate information that will help our youth better understand themselves, why they behave the way they do and why some behaviors need to be changed. No culture is perfect; we should always be open to new ideas; and we should select the ones that can help us become better. A lot of who we are is animal DNA. All animals have a survival instinct, a need for food and sex and territory, and in the forest animals go about achieving their ends by following the laws of the jungle. Human beings, the most cerebral animal on the planet, over time have developed laws by which to live. These laws are generally the same all over the world. For example, every country and respected culture has a law against murder. There are also small, and not so small, differences. For example, some countries condemn homosexuality and some don’t.

Corozal: A Lovely Colorful Belize Town with A Definite Mexican Feel
I had been through Corozal quite a few times in the past 12 years – mostly to get to Mexico or from Mexico out to the cayes but….I had never really lingered and I haughtily felt like I didn’t need to. What makes Corozal particularly intriguing to many who are looking to relocate to Belize – especially those looking for a more affordable alternative to the cayes is the proximity to Mexico. JUST across the border – less than 10 miles away – is a relatively HUGE city of Chetumal Mexico. A place that has a huge array of shopping spots, malls, movie theaters, fast food joints and just people. Chetumal is estimated to have a couple hundred thousand people. Compare that to the entire country of Belize that has just around 400,000. Or Corozal town…which has less than 20,000.

Bird Watching in Belize: Top Hotspots
With more than 570 species of birds thriving in its varied ecosystems, there's no better place to go bird watching than in Belize. This gem of a country provides wonderful, year-round experiences for great birding experiences. From casual onlookers to veteran ornithologists, birders of every level delight in the sight of macaws, toucans, trogons, hummingbirds, storks, parrots, raptors, and other species commonly seen throughout Belize. Here are four of the best destinations to go bird watching in Belize:

Things To See and Do In Corozal
Corozal is conveniently located between Mexico and Ambergris Caye, with its own turquoise shores and diverse landscape, from beaches and historical sights to a nature reserve. In town, remnants of historical and cultural heritage are on full display. There are gun turrets at Fort Barlee used during the 19th century during the Caste War; the vibrant Corozal Town Mural depicting the district’s history and the Maya temple of Santa Rita, where the mestizo population of Belize was born.

Taste of Belizean Tradition
Like its kaleidoscope of cultures, Belize’s culinary landscape–from stick-to-your-ribs stews to streetside tamales–begs exploration. Belize’s dual Caribbean and Central American identity leads to flavorful cuisines across six districts. There are surprising options beyond the national plate of coconut rice and beans, with stewed chicken. Start with this primer, and then add your own discoveries.

November is Garifuna History Month – San Pedro Celebrates
When you think of November, most would think about Thanksgiving but for Belizeans, the month signals the celebration of the rich history and cultural immersion of the Garifuna people to Belize. With Belize’s rich diversity of people, the Garifuna make up about 7% of the entire country’s population and their contributions as a culture have propelled over the years. The Garifuna people primarily inhabit the Caribbean coastal communities of Belize including Barranco, Seine Bight, Dangriga, Hopkins, and Punta Gorda. The first Garifuna people arrived in Belize on November 19th, 1802 in the town of Dangriga, which is considered to be the cultural capital of the Belizean Garifuna people. In 2001, UNESCO declared the Garifuna culture, music, dance and language as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. While music and drumming remain synonymous to the Garifuna identity, dance is also a major reflection and integral part of the Garifuna culture, stemming from its West African origins.

Enjoy Bird Watching at Caye Caulker
Caye Caulker is a small island off the coast of Belize, and it’s divided by the Split, which is a narrow channel separating the two masses of land. To the south is the island’s only settlement, known as Caye Caulker Village. Caye Caulker has a lot to offer to visitors. The surrounding clear, pristine waters and fascinating coral reef attracts visitors from around the world. However, not all the Caye’s treasures are in the water. The south end of the island is home to a dense mangrove forest and diverse birdlife. Although the island is small, there are over 100 species of resident and migratory birds on the island.

Ocelot tracking is revealing new information about this elusive cat
It is night in a Central American pine forest, and an ocelot is following a game trail. The predatory wild cat, approximately twice the size of a housecat, is hoping to catch the scent of a rabbit or hear the rustle of mice in the undergrowth. Along the way, the ocelot passes between two remotely triggered infrared cameras set at about knee-height off the ground. The cameras flash simultaneously, startling the animal and momentarily illuminating the forest. The resulting photographs capture the unique markings of the elusive cat: solid black bands and spots over tawny yellow fur, a pale underbelly, and a bright white spot on each rounded ear. Moments like these have been a regular occurrence in the pine forest and broadleaf jungles of Belize, where Professor Marcella Kelly, of the College of Natural Resources and Environment, has spent the last 15 years tracking the movements of predatory ocelots and jaguars using remote sensor cameras. Now her research, one of the longest continuous studies of wild cat populations in the world, is giving scientists new insights into the range, population sizes, and migratory habits of Central American wild cats.

Scientists say too much tourism is fueling mysterious disease killing the Caribbean’s corals
The breathtaking reds, yellows and purples of the Mesoamerican Reef have been turning sickly white, leading researchers on a desperate hunt to understand and fight the mysterious disease killing the Caribbean’s corals. In a little over a year, the Mexican Caribbean has lost more than 30 percent of its corals to a little-understood illness called SCTLD, or stony coral tissue loss disease, which causes them to calcify and die. Experts warn the disease could kill a large part of the Mesoamerican Reef, a magnificent arc of more than 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) of coral shared by Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. SCTLD has put the region in a bind: it could potentially devastate the vital tourism industry around the reef, the second-largest in the world after Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. And yet, it is highly possible that too much tourism is in fact fueling the problem, scientists say.

Healthy mangroves help coral reef fisheries under climate stress
Healthy mangroves can help fight the consequences of climate change on coral reef fisheries, according to a University of Queensland-led study. UQ’s Professor Peter Mumby said corals have been bleached and reefs have lost their structural complexity as a major consequence of warming seas. “Many people are worried that – due to climate change – reef fishery yields could halve if coral reefs flatten, losing the hiding places that support thousands of fish,” he said. “When a young fish arrives at a degraded reef it has nowhere to hide and is easily targeted by predators.

Head to Belize for the Eco-Friendly Vacay of Your Dreams
Sure, it might take three planes to get to the southern tip of Belize Punta Gorda, but TBH, it’s a place like no other. I spent four days in the lush rainforest at the Copal Tree Lodge, an eco-friendly resort featuring an organic farm and a rum distillery, and fell in love with its fields of fruit, cacao trees, heirloom sugarcane, and all the local livestock. Uh, yes, this is the remote vacay of your dreams. Here’s how to have the best experience, complete with howler monkeys, coffee cupping, farm-to-table food, and fresh-caught seafood.

Enlarging Chetumal canal intended to encourage marine tourism
The Quintana Roo government has begun dredging to extend the Zaragoza canal in order to spur marine tourism in the region. The project will also boost trade by connecting the state capital Chetumal to the community of Xcalak. Governor Carlos Joaquín González and military authorities inaugurated the project at the naval base located at the entrance to the canal. He said that opening a navigable route between the Caribbean and the bay of Chetumal is a strategic economic action.

More drought concerns for Caribbean region
The Barbados-based Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH) says below normal rainfall continued in parts of the region already with concerns over drought, including over Belize and Barbados. “There are areas of concern over short term drought by end of January 2020 that can impact agriculture, streams and small rivers, particularly in the vicinity of Belize and Cayman Islands,” the CIMH said in its latest Caribbean drought bulletin. It said there is wider concern over long term drought by the end of November 2019 that can impact ground water and large rivers, particularly in Belize, the Guiana's – northern Suriname and French Guiana – and some islands of the eastern Caribbean, namely Barbados, Dominica and St Kitts.

    Seeking a Seaweed Solution

Kevin Pollard, District Coordinator, NEMO: "It is a basic first aid training as you know that normally we have public officers in the shelters and this training is to assist in the event that something was to happen within the shelter, they can assist before we get additional assistance."

    The Barrier Reef & Northern Islands
    Belize has many wonders, but one in particular is our national treasure, our Great Barrier Reef, which spans 180 miles, protecting our coast line. It is the largest coral reef in this hemisphere; Australia being the other. Small populations and careful management has preserved this treasure. Here you can find more than 400 species of fish, and a myriad of marine environments. The Northern Islands are the most frequented and populated islands in the country. Caye Caulker and San Pedro are not just water sport havens but also bustling towns where socializing is a favorite pastime. Enjoy the island life on the main cayes or caye hop and explore the dozens of white sand beaches like Goff’s Caye, Sargent’s Caye and other smaller most often unpopulated islands.

    Belize, A Place for Nature Enthusiasts

Here’s a list of some of the protected areas and what you can see at each in Belize that you must visit.

    Strange disease threatens Caribbean coral reef
    The breathtaking reds, yellows and purples of the Mesoamerican Reef have been turning sickly white, leading researchers on a desperate hunt to understand and fight the mysterious disease killing the Caribbean's corals. In a little over a year, the Mexican Caribbean has lost more than 30 percent of its corals to a little-understood illness called SCTLD, or stony coral tissue loss disease, which causes them to calcify and die. Experts warn the disease could kill a large part of the Mesoamerican Reef, a magnificent arc of more than 1,000 kilometers of coral shared by Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. SCTLD has put the region in a bind: it could potentially devastate the vital tourism industry around the reef, the second-largest in the world after Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

    Fifteen years of ocelot tracking is revealing new information about this elusive cat
    It is night in a Central American pine forest, and an ocelot is following a game trail. The predatory wild cat, approximately twice the size of a housecat, is hoping to catch the scent of a rabbit or hear the rustle of mice in the undergrowth. Along the way, the ocelot passes between two remotely triggered infrared cameras set at about knee-height off the ground. The cameras flash simultaneously, startling the animal and momentarily illuminating the forest. The resulting photographs capture the unique markings of the elusive cat: solid black bands and spots over tawny yellow fur, a pale underbelly, and a bright white spot on each rounded ear. Moments like these have been a regular occurrence in the pine forest and broadleaf jungles of Belize, where Professor Marcella Kelly, of the College of Natural Resources and Environment, has spent the last 15 years tracking the movements of predatory ocelots and jaguars using remote sensor cameras.

    Doctor Love: Perturbed
    Dear Doctor Love, On the referral of a friend, I hired a girl to tidy up and clean the kitchen and bathrooms. We agreed on seven half days and one full day a month and I pay her a very generous salary that includes lunch and taxi fare. After she left the third time, I noticed a piece of jewelry wasn’t where I normally keep it. I couldn’t be certain I had put it back but then I searched everywhere, and I haven’t been able to find it. When she came again, I asked her about it and she denied seeing it, so I let it go thinking I had lost it myself.

    Jankunu Festival Of The Garifuna
    Jankunu, also known as John Canoe in English, is the HABINAHAN WANARAGUA Festival of the Garifuna of southern Belize. According to tradition, this festival is rooted in male secret societies of West Africa, Poro, and Egungun, which was where most of the African slaves were taken by the British and forcibly brought to British Honduras to fuel their exploitation of the logwood trade. The name comes from “Alusi”, a deity of the Igbo people. Until perhaps the last decade or so, this exotic ritual was almost a well-kept Belizean secret, and mostly only in southern Belize. This impressive art form is an amalgam of music, dance, mime and cultural symbolism in a formidable display of male supremacy, likely to reinforce their resistance to slavery.

    Let’s Celebrate the Garifuna Culture!
    The 19th of November is a National Holiday in Belize. It is the day that the country commemorates the arrival of the Garifuna people to its shores. The Garinagu have greatly contributed to Belizean culture. In 2001, UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) declared the Garifuna culture a “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. However, keeping the traditions and language alive has been a rising concern. The loss of such a beautiful culture would be devastating not only to Belize but to the world. Luckily, organizations such as The National Garifuna Council and The Battle of the Drums initiative are making efforts to prevent this from being a reality.

    An Ocean Bar Offers A Life Of Fun In Caribbean Belize
    We had come to Ambergris Caye—Belize’s largest island—on our honeymoon and loved it. We spent our time diving, fishing, and exploring the cays and atolls. The waters and reefs were incredibly beautiful and we instantly fell in love with the island and its friendly people. Another big plus is that English is the first language. By 2007, we were seriously considering a move and in February that year, we found a local watering hole for sale on Ambergris Caye. The next week, we flew down to take a look at it, and the rest is history. In buying the bar, we’d gone totally out on a limb. We arrived with nothing but our determination, hopes, dreams, and of course, our bartender guide book. Our goal was to find a niche and create own our little piece of paradise.

    25 Things that create the Belize experience

    Death and the Journey
    Ancient people from around the world share similarities in ideology and afterlife beliefs, even though they never communicated, interacted or they simply lived in different time periods. There are many mythological realms and places we go to when we die and that varies from culture to culture. The Ancient Romans had Tartarus, a place where evil souls go to be tortured, and the Fields of Elysium, the place where wariors and normal citizens souls go. In Judaism, there is a place for the souls that are not prepared, a place similar to a purgatory or limbo, where souls go through a period of reconciliation and are shown how their lives could have been different and better. They need to be cleansed first then move on to their peaceful place with God. We have the Christian belief with a hell where Satan reigns supreme, where the souls of the damned go to suffer and be tormented in a fiery pit under the earth for all of eternity, and heaven, where God the Father is and where there is no more pain and suffering.

    Your Guide to Belize Vacation Packages
    Belize is small but it is an incredibly diverse travel destination. And whether you travel alone, in a group, with family members, or just a partner, knowing where to go, what to do, and for how long, is key to having a great time in Belize. In other words, the right Belize vacation package can make or break your trip. Typically, I recommend spending a minimum of one week in Belize and visiting at least two destinations. And which destination or destinations you choose to visit should depend a lot on the experiences that you want to have! To help guide you, here are the top Belize vacation packages highlighting the best locations in Belize.
