Belize tourism recovers after a slow start 

Posted: Tuesday, January 28, 2020. 9:25 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: After a sluggish peak tourist season, things were looking grim for tourism growth in Belize, reports Caribbean Journal.

But a 1.2 percent decline was offset by an 11.3 percent growth in tourist arrivals in the summer season for an overall rise of 6.2 percent, according to the latest data from the Caribbean Tourism Organization.

Belize grappled with issues of visitor safety, with several deaths reported, including a fatal traffic mishap in November and a murder in June off Ambergris Caye.

Belize saw a particularly strong increase in arrivals from the United States, with an 8 percent increase compared to 2014, which softened the blow of a 9 percent reduction in tourism from Canada.

The Belize Tourism Board reported that for the first time ever, more than half a million overnight tourist arrivals were recorded in 2019. Its figures are yet to be released officially.
