New flights to Belize keeping popping up! In addition to new flights, you’ll be pleased to learn that new airline is beginning to run flights to Belize as well. Air Canada has announced that they will be running a new route to Belize City very soon. This is the second Canadian airline to add new flights to Belize, the first being WestJet airlines, which began flying from Toronto to Belize City this past fall.
In terms of tourism, the numbers just came in, and Belize once again registered growth in the number of tourists arriving to the country. The first quarter of 2017 saw 2.7% more tourist arrivals compared to the first quarter of 2016. This is especially impressive news, considering that 2016 was already a record-breaking year for tourist arrivals to Belize!
Once again, you can see for yourself that Belize continues to grow as a major tourism destination in Central America. You can also read about the chocolate industry in Belize and why they are talking about it in Europe these days.

At Grand Baymen, many of our residents attended a ribbon-cutting this past month which marked the official opening of the Explorer Building with ten exceptional condominiums in the Garden Community. Following the ceremony, guests were welcomed to the top floor of the Explorer Building for dinner, drinks, and a stunning sunset view from the building’s sprawling, rooftop veranda. It was an exciting event, and one that marks much progress and prosperity to come for Grand Baymen and Ambergris Caye.
The fun is just getting started here in Belize. You can see how it’s done in an article about the Grand Easter celebrations on the island too. Come enjoy a refreshing piña colada and relax on the white sand beaches and don't miss some of the best months for diving and snorkeling on the island!
Come enjoy the island life with us at Grand Baymen.
Until next time,
Chairman and CEO
