Oh, sure — though the bill would mandate that all registered voters return their ballots, either by mail or to a...

Solo Female Travel in Belize — Is Belize Safe?

I love Belize — and I love traveling alone in Belize. This tiny country borders Mexico and Guatemala, but it hardly resembles either Latin nation. Belize is all about Caribbean culture instead — languid island vibes, reggae-influenced dance beats, spicy chicken stews, and some of the clearest, bluest water you’ve ever seen in your life. Belize is like candy — a sweet and forbidden indulgence. If you’re looking to travel solo in Belize, you’re going to have a wonderful trip. Truthfully, Bel...
