Since DrMexico is flagrantly ignoring his responsibility to act as "master of the obvious" by posting silly pictures, I must step in to fill the void.

The concept of "paradise" is simply a human construct. It is man's invention to act as a balm to the soul; but still it is nothing more than a human ideal. Belize is just like the rest of the world. There is pain and suffering, joy and wonder and all the other emotions that together make up the human experience.

Tru dat, could not have said it better myself! However it is true that some places are more beautiful than others (think Honolulu and Detroit, for example). In that light, Belize falls much closer to Hawaii than Detroit (ya think?)...........

Clearly paradise is subjective. However safety and security factor into the equation.
The homicide rate ( per 100k) for Detroit last year was 39.7, Hawaii was 2.7 and Belize was at 44.
So probably paradise is not the most accurate depiction of life in said banana republic

Well, I've been to many beaches in the Caribbean, the Atlantic, the Pacific, and the Mediterranean and the white sand crescent that is Placencia's beach is definitely my favorite. I never tire of swinging in my hammock watching the color of the sea change from indigo to aquamarine to emerald and then silver as the sun sets behind the Maya mountains.
