Crossing over the border from Guatemala into Belize was challenging because of the strained relationship between the two countries. Guatemala believes a significant portion of Belize belongs to Guatemala and boundaries continue to be disputed. We had to take all of our luggage down from the top of the bus, walk it across the border ourselves, and then load it again. The Belize population was clearly more "Carribean" than Spanish and if the Belize immigration officials spoke Spanish, they were not admitting it. This "English-Only Spoken Here" made it easier to remember that Belize used to be British Honduras.
