The Belize District is a district of the nation of Belize, with its district capital being the nation's largest city, Belize City. Most of the Belize District is in the east central mainland of Belize; the Belize District also includes various offshore islands, including Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker, St. George's Caye, Caye Chapel, English Caye and Goff's Caye. Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker are considered two of the country's primary tourism areas. The longest river in the country, the Belize River, passes through the district and joins the Caribbean Sea along its coast. The 2005 mid-year population estimate of the Belize District was 87,000 with an estimated 69,200 of these living in the two urban areas.
