You Must Visit Belize in 2019 Says Condé Nast Traveler
Condé Nast Traveler has just selected Belize for the first time as a must-visit destination for 2019. After carefully assessing thousands of alluring destinations, Condé Nast Traveler chose Belize because of its natural beauty and abundance of high-end, luxury resorts.
Whether it’s the island eco-resort named Blackadore Caye owned by Leonardo DiCaprio that is rumored to be opening very soon or ground-breaking projects currently underway by luxury hoteliers like Four Seasons and Hilton, the variety of luxury properties in Belize received glowing referrals from Condé Nast Traveler. The lifestyle magazine also noted that Francis Ford Coppola now operates two luxury properties in Belize, and that the Placencia Peninsula is rapidly becoming extremely chic.
As noted by Condé Nast Traveler, Belize is just a five-hour flight or less from anywhere in North America and seven of the continent’s largest airlines now compete fiercely to serve the growing Belize travel market. In the past year alone, WestJet, Air Canada, Aeromexico, Southwest, and Sun Country Airlines have either added new routes to Belize or began flying to the country for the first time. And for travelers wishing to include Belize in their Central American itinerary, the country has non-stop flights from Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, and Panama.
Condé Nast Traveler had warm words for Belize’s natural charm as well, including spectacularly diverse tropical rainforests teeming with exotic flora and fauna and the offshore reef, the largest coral system in the Western Hemisphere. Popular outdoor activities in Belize including water sports on the reef (kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and stand-up paddling) and hiking through national parks to enjoy activities like zip lining, bird watching, and swimming in the base of jungle waterfalls.
