#1. Belize's Beaches
Acclaimed for its sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters, Belize beckons those students yearning for a warm, tropical environment. A mixture of creole and Mayan influences, Belize is the only country in Central America where English is the official language - perfect for those wanting to study in Belize. The capital, Belize City, is located on the Caribbean Sea, making it just a short boat ride to the islands off the coast.
For the adventurous student, some of the best scuba diving in the world can be found in Belize's "Great Blue Hole" -- a submarine sinkhole more than 400 feet deep.
