If you're looking for a great book to read on a vacation down to Belize, check out The Mosquito Coast, by Paul Theroux. The novel is about a crazed American man who moves his family to Central America to hack a life out of the jungle.

The book was adapted into a 1986 movie starring Harrison Ford which is also worth checking out once you've finished the book. The movie was entirely shot in Belize and practically the entire country was in someway directly or indirectly involved in the production. To this day Harrison Ford says that its his favorite of the movies he's been in.
