Belize scores for eager to please

2nd May 2013

Belize's burgeoning reputation for magnificent Caribbean beaches and friendly, laid-back and accommodating locals has been reflected in record tourism figures just published.

The number of people visiting the Central American paradise between January and March hit an all-time best 92,991.

This represents a rise of 13% on the same quarter last year.

In March alone Belize saw the number of visitors pass 35,000 for the first time.

It's not difficult to see why the country is proving a great favourite among tourists on family holidays and group tours.

Lush rainforests, the Mayan temple ruins and world-class diving opportunities - including the western hemisphere's biggest barrier reef - are all great lures for holidaymakers.

The nation also boasts the largest cave system in Central America.

Communication and organising a holiday here are far simpler because Belize is the only country in the area where English is the official language.
