Belize Breaks Tourism Records Again
Belize’s tourism sector is booming. The country’s latest figures show one of the fastest growing destinations in the Caribbean region, with a 16.5% increase in stay-over visitors compared to the first half of 2015. That represented a total of 213,430 visitors, the first time Belize has ever received more than 200,000 stay-over visitors in the first six months of a calendar year. All six months of 2016 showed double-digit growth, led by January, which saw a 24% increase in arrivals compared to 2015.
