Welcome to Little Belize
Located on the eastern shore of Progresso Lagoon, Little Belize is an Old Order Mennonite community of approximately 2000 residents. Among the more traditional Mennonite groups, these folks look as though they've come straight from the prairie, driving around in horse-drawn carriages, with men wearing broad-brimmed hats and overalls and women in long dresses and bonnets.
Like most Mennonite villages, Little Belize is an industrious place, with an economy thriving on farming. One of the largest employers in the village is Belize Exports Ltd, which grows papayas for export to North America.
