Belize Newspapers

One thing nice about the official language being English in Belize is that you will be able to read the newspapers if coming from North America or another English-speaking part of the world. Belize has plenty of newspapers to get information you need. The press in Belize is supposed to be a free one however be careful with information produced in newspapers run by a political party as you will get that party's viewpoint only. You might also need the newspaper for news or look at the advertisements to see if they have any tour specials.
