Where is Belize?

I often speak with people from around the world and when I tell them I live in Belize they almost always ask “Where is Belize located?” Part of the problem may be that it is a relatively young country, having attained its own sovereignty in 1982 when it changed its name from British Honduras to Belize.

Even people in neighboring Mexico ask me, “Where is Belize?” In fact, I’ll bet you found this page because you were just wondering, “Where is Belize?”

Well, if you are wondering about where Belize is, you might be thinking about coming down for a visit and if you do there is no more affordable place to stay than the Sandbar Hostel. Located on the beach about a five minute walk from the center of San Pedro, we have 40 beds in dormitory style sleeping. All come with air conditioning, a private locker and free WiFi. There are also a few private rooms available, each with private baths and gorgeous ocean views.
