Default Belize is NOT an Island

Belize is a Central American country. Yes, there are islands as part of their territory; however, Belize City is not on an island.

On the CruiseMates home page, the "Cruise Picture of the Day" has this statement:

Here's a shot of bustling downtown Belize City. These small Caribbean islands depend greatly on tourism to fuel their economy.

And a seahorse is not a horse.

Being a pedant to get attention is an ugly thing.

Have you ever tried their Indian Tacos? They serve them all over the island, but you cannot wear jeans at the table.
