Traveling with Children in Belize 
Laughing Bird Cay, Stann Creek, Belize
The best place to hang out in Belize.  We had three kids, only two of whom were diving.  One parent stayed on the Cay and snorkeled with the little one.  Between dives, we switched.

Gay/Lesbian Travelers in Belize 
Dangriga, Stann Creek, Belize
What an awesome town! Be sure to take a trip south to Hopkins to see the Swinging Armadillo Hammock lounge - the best hammock hang-up anywhere. It's a short trip out to the cayes from here, and the snorkeling is great. But be forewarned - a lot of people in Belize, especially in smaller towns, are not morning people. Many don't even get up before noon, so finding breakfast can be hard. Pack some food!

Ladyville, Belize City, Belize
Belize! I lived here for like 1 1/2 years for medical school. We lived in Los Lagos. Ladyville is on the out-skirts of Belize City. Its an okay kind of place. I would check out the Baboon Sanctuary, The Belize Zoo, Old Belize, and go Cave Tubing. All you gotta do is ask any local, they will let you know how and where to go. People are very friendly there. You can exchange your U.S. dollars easily for Belizian dollars with anyone. Much better exchange rate than at banks and stores! Make sure you check out those Mayan Ruins if you can. They are beautiful. Plus, if you get a chance, take a propeller plane from the airport, or go to downtown Belize City and take a motor boat to Caye Caulker and San Pedro (islands of the coast of Belize), trust me, you won't be sorry you went. Beautiful islands full of snorkeling, water skiing, diving, adventure sports, and much more. Don't forget to get your hair braided! Also, make sure not to miss an opportunity to go clubbing at the Princess's club in Belize City. Plus, make sure you try the national favorite "rice beans chicken!!!!!!!!!!!"

San Ignacio, Cayo, Belize
For eastern Belize, this is a great place to get back and recharge. There are all the facilities you may need from laundry and internet to french bakeries that serve pizza (I know, I didn't expect it either). You can get to an ATM here, but take your time. The booths air conditioned. There's a neat little outdoor market, but it stinks of fish so get there early in the day.

Orange Walk, Northern Belize, Belize
It is such a great place to travel. The people are awesome! Just be respectful of the Mennonites in the different communities and you should be golden!

Hitch hiking is very common/expected even. It's a very laid back part of the world. You should have no trouble finding your way through it.

If you find yourself with a fever get to the doctor/nurse immediately. It's too hot, even in the rainy season to get sick. They can bring your fever down. The sun seems to be very strong in this area as well. I burn easily, and I found that NoAd and a dark t-shirt did the trick!

San Pedro, Belize City, Belize
Caye Caulker, Belize... We visited Belize during spring break in March. We had made reservations, but it wasn't really necessary as there were little, and inexpensive, places to stay. Caye Caulker is a tiny third world island that is trying to capitalize on the scuba, snorkeling they have off shore. CC is a laid back island great for reading and relaxing. The locals are friendly.
