Welcome to the New Year! 2016 was one of the best years for tourism in Belize in over 2 decades. According to Belize Tourism Board (BTB), in 2016 there was a 13% increase in overnight arrivals to the country compared to 2015. This was the strongest growth of any tourism destination in all of the Caribbean for 2016. It’s safe to say that Belize, Ambergris Caye specifically, truly is becoming the #1 tourism spot in the region.
In order to serve the growing demand from visitors wanting to discover Belize, new flights started coming to Belize in 2016 including the first direct flight from Canada, WestJet (departing to and from Toronto). Beginning on January 4th of this year, Southwest began offering a direct flight from Fort Lauderdale to Belize City… and the best news is that tickets are only $79 one way. If you’ve been looking for an excuse to take a trip to Belize, this could be it. (And the upcoming Belize Discovery Tour from February 9th-12th would be the perfect time to plan that trip!)
Ambergris Caye is well known for both verdant areas of natural beauty and abundance. Take the Hawksbill turtle, which is on the endangered list, yet still boasts a strong and healthy population in Belize’s, Glover’s Reef Atoll. And of course, the gorgeous coral reef, the second largest in the world, is always a magical experience to snorkel or dive. It’s this type of natural beauty that keeps tourists coming back year after year, and always in greater numbers.
To own real estate on an island that is the #1 tourist destination in the Caribbean, conveniently located only a few hours from the United States, surrounded by natural beauty, and located in an English-speaking country truly is unbeatable. Let’s just say I’m glad to have gotten involved on Ambergris Caye when I did. And now all that’s left to do is hold onto the real estate and serve the needs of the ever-growing numbers of tourists who flock here. And the best part is, you too can become a part of this growing trend!
The region is continuing to grow, and we’re excited for the progress within this incredible destination. Here’s to another year of breaking records, and new opportunities on Ambergris.
