Forbes Says to Visit Belize for Fall and Winter
On October 22, 2017, Forbes magazine published an article about eight trending international destinations for travel this fall and winter. Written by veteran travel author Lea Lane, the Forbes article highlighted Belize, mentioning how the country has experienced an 18% increase in popularity over the last year thanks to its combination of cultural and historical sites as well as its beautiful natural landscape.
The Forbes article recommended Belize as a great place to get away from cold autumn and winter weather, describing how immense its offshore reef is. The article went on to describe Belize as having “the best diving sites in the world” as well as being a world-class destination for snorkeling. The Belize Barrier Reef is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the second-largest barrier reef in the world after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
Belizean cuisine also got a favorable mention in the Forbes article. With a long Caribbean coastline and a very fertile mainland, Belize is home to some of the best tasting seafood and produce in the world. Visitors can sample both traditional foods from Belize’s multi-cultural society or enjoy international favorites, all at very reasonable prices.
As alluded to by the Forbes article, the nation of Belize is located on the Central American mainland just south of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. With a long coastline and hundreds of offshore islands, Belize is a natural paradise, giving visitors who arrive in the fall and winter plenty of exciting adventure opportunities such as hiking through a rainforest, fishing on the reef, zip lining through the jungle, horseback riding in a national park, or fun water sports like sea kayaking and windsurfing.
Belize is the only former British colony in Central America and the only country in the region where English is the official language, making it very accessible for visitors from the United States and Canada. All six of the largest airlines in North America now offer non-stop flights from major cities to Belize, with an average flying time of just four hours.
