Belize Newsletter August 2016



Dear Readers,

As September rolls on, Ambergris Caye is entering its busy season. August is known as the heart of the “low season” in Belize, and as such, many Belizeans take time during August to improve their businesses and get some well-deserved rest and relaxation. Now that we’ve made our way into September, the improvements have been made, and the Belizeans are ready to enthusiastically accommodate all of the soon to come tourists.

It’s not just Belizeans that have been utilizing the off season to prepare for the now arriving fall and winter tourists. Airlines, cruise lines and hotel companies around the globe have been looking at tourism trends and planning their expansions accordingly. Now that the expansions are in place, this year is shaping up to be yet another for growth in the tourism industry in Belize.

It’s not just the amazing rebound from the devastating storm that is causing exciting news out of Belize, though. American Airlines has announced new travel routes to the country. This comes amidst a steady stream of new flights and carriers announcing their latest options for travelling to Belize.

The country is also excited to witness the latest discoveries at its popular ancient Mayan ruin sites, which are open for tours year-round. There is also significant development happening around the country as tourism, the largest and fastest growing industry here, continues to provide revenue resources in all the districts of Belize.

As usual, there is a lot happening in Belize. Even with mother nature’s occasional setbacks, Belize is a thriving nation. We welcome you to visit, whether it is your first time or hundredth, to see the vitality and happiness that permeates the culture here. Whether you are seeking a thrill or total relaxation, or a bit of both, Belize is the place to be this year.
