Belize is a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic country with a lot of different people living here. The people who live here are Mexicans, Spanish, Garifuna, Chinese, etc. We are basically a melting pot of the Caribbean and Central America, so we are a mix of the people who live in these places.
Garifuna is an ethnic group that is mostly located in the southern part of Belize. They are mixed with Carib descent and have a very different culture compared to what most people are used to. They have their own food and they have their own language. So although the basic language of Belize is English, within the country of Belize we have other languages such as Spanish, Garifuna, Chinese, and the Creole dialect.
The Carib people are of Caribbean descent, and originally came from Africa. They have a lot of African cultural traits and African features. We also have colored-skin Chinese people here because the Chinese from China mixed with the Creole people here. It is not common, but it does happen, so we really have a melting pot here in Belize. The Chinese migrated here to have a better way of living. Most of them came here to set up businesses. They have retail stores, grocery stores, restaurants, etc. They work a lot in the food industry and they have a big piece of that market in Belize.
We also have Amish people here in Belize. The Mennonite community here is pretty close-knit within themselves. There are a couple of different Mennonite communities that exist here in western and the central part of Belize.
Overall, it is very common to make friends with Chinese, Garifuna, and other ethnicities here in Belize since it is a melting pot of different cultures, and everyone gets along together.
