Needing to find your own embassy while traveling rarely has to do with good news, but the subject does come up fairly often anyway. If you’ve lost your passport in Belize you might be in for some headaches unless you are from one of the bigger countries listed below.

Not many people seem to realize that Belize City hasn’t been the capital of the country in many decades. That honor goes to the small city of Belmopan, which is about 50 miles west of Belize City, and fortunately, it’s fairly cheap and easy to get there if you need to.
