Belmopan is the capital of Belize formely known as British Honduras and is located 80km inland from the former capital and largest city, Belize City. After the devastation caused by Hurricane Hattie in 1961, the goverment decided to re-locate and establish a new capital inland away from the coast. Belmopan is promoted as a "garden city" with many open green spaces, goverment institutions and the National Assembly. The city has a fine university where many Spanish speaking students from neighbouring countries come to study English.
