Belize lies on the southeast coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, and is bordered by Mexico on the north, Guatemala on the south and west, and the Caribbean Sea on the east. More than half of the people live on the coast. Belize is the only country in Central America where English is the official language, and people of African descent make up the largest part of the population. This country became an independent nation in 1981. It had been a British colony since 1862. From its colonial days until 1973, Belize was called British Honduras. Belize began printing its stamps in 1973.
