Belize - It`s Not In North America - Dumb Moment

4 years ago

One of my man`s coworkers recently went to Belize to visit her sister who is living there. When we had a discussion in the car one day about it. I was like oh yeah Belize is in Central America. I was like "Was this Michelle`s first time outside of North America?" Haha I am an idiot because even though it is part of Central America it is technically in North America. I wasn`t the only one who thought this as his coworker and everyone in the office thought it wasn`t in North America minus him smart arse lol.

Belize is a country where the Maya civilization spread over the area. Which is why Mayan ruins are a common site as in picture 1 and 4. 60% of the country is covered by forest. Belize is also a leader where it comes to protecting its biodiversity and natural resources. 36% of Belize`s land territory falls under some form of official protected status. The Belize Barrier Reef System both constitutes a UNESCO-recognised World Heritage Site and the second largest barrier reef in the world, second only to Australia`s Great Barrier Reef. I did not know that their reef system was so large. I would love to snorkel or scuba dive in it one day.

Did you know Belize was part of North America or were you dumb until this post and thought it was outside of North America and somehow Central America became a continent via the magic in your head like mine? Lol

Have you ever traveled to anywhere in Central America?
