Visitors in 2016 came primarily from 5 countries: United States (over 70%), Canada, Belize, UK and Mexico. It’s interesting to see Mexico rank in the top 5, however, I anticipated that […]

Every year I write about travel trends that I think will impact tourism in Belize. I am fairly satisfied with the predictions I wrote for 2015 and unless I feel it’s necessary, I don’t intend to reiterate the same predictions for 2016.

Riding the bus in Belize

If you’re interested in catching local transportation in Belize, riding the bus is one of the cheapest ways of getting around.
