Little Belize is a colony of conservative German-speaking "Russian" Mennonites, known as "Old Colony Mennonites", in the Corozal District of the nation of Belize. Little Belize is located west of Progresso at an elevation of 1 meter above sea level. Because the Mennonite colony is close to Progresso, it is sometimes called "Progresso".

The population is mostly Mennonite. According to the 2000 census, Little Belize had a population of 2,059 people. In 2010 the population had grown to 2,650 people in 427 households.[1]
