The credit card company American Express recently featured Belize as one of the best places to visit for its cardholders. In a video posted on the company’s Facebook account entitled “Golden Travel Tips,” American Express described how its members can double the number of countries that they visit by taking advantage of stopovers, brief trips taken in between journeys to other destinations. American Express specifically recommended that its North American customers take advantage of special pricing and discounts to make a stopover to Belize when traveling to Argentina or other destinations in South America.
The American Express video received a lot of positive attention, garnering more than 24,000 views and a lot of supportive comments about the idea. With more than 6 million fans, it is likely that the American Express video will do a lot to raise awareness about the benefits of visiting Belize and exploring all of the wonderful attractions in the country.
Belize is located in Central America between Mexico and Guatemala. With hundreds of offshore islands, 200 miles of coastline on the Caribbean, and a diverse interior of rainforests, waterfalls, and jungles, Belize is known for its beautiful nature, warm and friendly locals, and a relaxed approach to life. Thanks to airlines like American, United, Southwest, WestJet, and Delta, it’s easy and affordable to find non-stop flights to Belize from major cities in the United States and Canada. Once in Belize, the small size of the country makes it easy to get around and explore a bevy of attractions, including offshore islands, nature reserves, ancient Maya ruins, and beautiful national parks.
American Express customers who want to see the very best that Belize has to offer should consider staying at the lovely Chabil Mar resort on the Placencia Peninsula. A multiple award-winning resort and a TripAdvisor favorite, Chabil Mar is a quiet oasis of luxury located right on the Caribbean. With a lush tropical garden, gourmet restaurant, open air dining on a beachfront pier, professional spa services, and upscale villas, Chabil Mar guarantees American Express customers a truly “UnBelizeable” experience.
Guests of Chabil Mar are warmly invited to attend Placencia’s popular Lobsterfest in June, a combination street party and cooking combination to come up with the most unusual and savory ways to incorporate the world’s favorite crustacean in a dish. Other popular attractions near Chabil Mar include diving with whale sharks that visit the nearby Gladden Spit each spring.
