By Aaron Humes: Belize looks set to shed its old tag of “Mother Nature’s Best Secret”, according to TravelPulse’s Brian Major.
More than 340,000 overnight visitors, a majority from the United States, visited Belize in 2015, the highest total in the country’s history according to the Belize Tourism Board (BTB).
After an uncertain start, new air services from Southwest and COPA Airlines boosted late-year arrivals.
In the cruise industry, a one-percent decline still saw more than 950,000 passengers dock in Belize, ranked among the 10 most-visited Caribbean cruise destinations according to Caribbean Tourism Organization statistics.
In addition Belize’s cruise ship calls are expected to increase significantly upon completion of Harvest Caye, Norwegian Cruise Line’s $100 million dedicated cruise port located off Belize’s southern coast. The facility, located near the small fishing village of Placencia, is scheduled to open in November.
