Belizeans are some of the most relaxed people in the world, especially if you venture inland, away from the tourist islands of Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker. The pace of life is generally slower in Belize, so it is advisable to start any social interaction, even if you are just asking a quick question, with eye contact and a sincere friendly greeting. Most Belizeans in the country like to talk and you can easily chat for a couple of hours. That’s part of the charm!
Mayan communities are sometimes a little more reserved. As always, a little respect and courtesy will help you get along.
