Belize District

Belize City
The Belize District is the heart of colonial Belize. Its terrain is coastal swamp extending to savannah inland. The Belize district is not highly developed as an agricultural area. It is traversed by a number of rivers and inland lagoons. Weather patterns are generally coastal i.e. relatively constant with tropical rain patterns.

The majority of the population of the Belize District is urban, living in Belize City. The original British port settlement was in Belize City. It is the first capital of the colony of British Honduras. Most of the country's commerce and trade is centralized here.

The residents of the Belize District are mostly the creole descendants of African slaves and European settlers.

The Belize district has very little in the way of archaeological or ecological interest. There are, however, a few other sights of interest including the Belize Zoo and Tropical Education Center. Belize City is also the link to the rest of the country. It is the main point of entry for tourists. Belize City has several major hotels. Tourists can get to the cayes or arrange travel to the other districts from here.
