In the early stages of the Spanish conquest, the indigenous people of Belize were not separated into ethnic groups. As a result, their culture was influenced by both the Maya and Carib ethnic groups. These influences can be seen in Belizean traditions such as Mayan-style pyramids and Kriol language. Today, many Belizeans identify themselves as Mestizo or Maya-Kriol. However, there continue to be tensions between these groups. In addition to cultural differences, there are also economic disparities between the different groups. For example, Maya-Kriol are often employed in tourism-related industries, while Mestizos tend to work in the agricultural and service industries. Despite these differences, all Belizeans share a love for traditional foods and tropical weather.
Belize Culinary & Food
When traveling to Belize, you’re sure to want to eat local Belizean food. While many Belizean dishes are based on the Caribbean and Central American cuisine, others are distinctly Belizean. The most popular Belizean foods include chicken in a green sauce (called Cumin Chicken), tamale, rice and beans, and fish tacos. One of the best places to eat Belizean food is the local markets. In addition to the standard produce, meat, and seafood found at most markets, there are also stands selling Belizean favorites like tamales, rice and beans, and cumin chicken. It’s always fun to try different variations of these classics – both for their taste and for the experience of dining in a local market. Another way to experience Belizean cuisine is by eating at a restaurant in one of the country’s towns or cities. You can find restaurants specializing in traditional Belizean foods throughout the country. Some of these restaurants serve only lunch or dinner; others have full-service restaurants that serve breakfast, brunch, and lunch or dinner daily. Usually, you can get an idea of what’s on the menu from their signs or from asking around when you arrive. Finally, if there are any locally-produced items that you want to try while in Belize, be sure to look for them at
