Ambergris Caye continues to grow in remarkable ways, bringing the economy and fortunes of Belize along with it. For those who have flown from Belize City to Ambergris Caye, you probably remember how easy and convenient the Tropic Air flight was. It’s something guests and residents of Grand Baymen comment on all the time. Tropic Air also just became the first airline to pass a renewal evaluation by the IATA, a comprehensive assessment of all aspects of safety involving the airline. Meaning that while Belize is known for its friendly, laidback nature, you can be sure that the airline is anything but lax when it comes to your safety.
Once you arrive on Ambergris Caye, take advantage of the excellent new farmers’ market north of the bridge. Though lacking in land, agriculture is one of Belize’s largest industries, and farmers’ markets are great ways of supporting local enterprise. Many have become familiar with the famous Mennonite Market early on Tuesday mornings, but this new farmers’ market is also easily accessible and allows many to participate. We look forward to watching it grow, and would love to see some pictures our readers take while they’re there!
The High Season has wound down, so if you’re looking for an excellent summer getaway without the crowds and high prices, visit Ambergris Caye over the next couple months. Check out the article about flights to Belize, and find out why ticket prices are dropping and service is increasing. Not things you normally hear about together when it comes to flying!
And if you happen to be in town this week, you need to check out Lobsterfest which started on June 15th! No self-respecting crustacean connoisseur should miss this incredible event, so be sure to ask about the Sizzling Summer Specials at Grand Baymen.
Until next time,
Chairman and CEO
