Belize is largely a conservative country, so it’s no surprise that many gay travelers are unaware of Belize. But thanks to a burgeoning tourism industry which has brought many new ideas and points of view to the country as well as hard work by local activists to overturn antiquated laws against consensual behavior between adults, Belize has made big strides towards a more progressive and inclusive society.
And although Belize is not yet at the forefront of equality, the country has been known for decades for its hospitality and acceptance of different cultures. There are more than half a dozen very distinct cultures in Belize, and local people in Belize are renowned for their friendliness and open-mindedness. There are also many restaurants, bars, nightspots, resorts, and lodges that actively welcome LGBTQ+ patrons.
