Belize City is the biggest city and former capital Belize and Belize District header. The city was the departmental head before the country's independence, when it was a British colony (British Honduras), and later became the capital to Belmopan in the year 1970. Unofficially it is estimated that the population of Belize City exceeds 70,800. The city lies at the mouth of the Belize River on the coast of the Caribbean.

These are the Sapodilla Cays, or Zapotillos Cays, as seen from the air. Only marine park rangers live on these keys. Although there are houses on some of the keys, many are uninhabited and others are only used for vacation. I was lucky enough to fly from the Zapotilla Keys to the Honduran coast in this half boat, half gliding thing. An amazing experience.
Zapotillos or Sapodilla Cays are situated in Belize Keys, just south from the Hotel in Puerto Cortes, Honduras excursions are offered on all weekends. Keys are very rarely visited. Here you can relax, go snorkelling or diving.
When you go diving there you need to take you passport and money to pay the Marine Park. It is Worth paying because you will certainly have fun in its warm, tropical waters. From Puerto Cortes in Honduras you can go every weekend, they take their boat and tours include lunch. This is just one hour.
