As the colder weather has crept through North America, thousands are planning their beach vacation to Belize.

And why wouldn'’t they? Pristine beaches, Mayan ruins and wonderful wildlife all have their particular draws for tourism in Belize, and can be experienced in a tropical climate.

The fact that Belize is a native English-speaking country adds to the allure of vacationing there.

Travel to Belize just became not only easier but cheaper as well! Two airlines, Southwest and Delta, have just upped the ante by slashing prices and adding service to the Caribbean paradise that is Belize.

As the new kid on the block, Southwest has begun servicing Belize at less than $399 a ticket (Wow!). Delta for its part has added non-stop service from Los Angeles.

While these changes are big news for Belize and the million-plus tourists expected to visit this year, Roshel Godfrey of the Belize Tourism Board sees them as the start of something even greater.

Cruises to Belize are increasing in volume and popularity, and the influx of traditional tourists who need housing has led to the renovation and construction of vacation accommodations.

In 1996, Michael K. Cobb and his business partner formed a company, Exotic Caye International, to provide loans to North Americans purchasing properties in Belize, Honduras, Costa Rica, and throughout the region. With a strong focus on consumer need, Mr. Cobb accurately predicted the growing demand for high quality, residential product for North American "baby boomer" retirees in the region. He led the group into real estate development and created a holding company called ECI Development for several properties, including a resort on Ambergris Caye, Belize. Michael speaks at dozens of international conferences annually about offshore real estate finance, development, and ownership. He was a consultant to The Oxford Club, hosted a weekly radio program, contributes regularly to overseas publications, sits on the board of several international companies, gives counsel to various real estate projects throughout Central America, and serves on the Board of Directors and the President’s Advisory Group for the National Association of Realtors, NAR.
