Americans have enjoyed non-stop service to Belize for years, but Canadians wanting to visit the tropical gem of a nation were forced to endure long flights with multiple connections. Now Canadians can enjoy the same benefits as their cousins in the United States as WestJet announced that it will begin operating non-stop flights from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to Belize City starting in October 2016. All flights will land at the Philip Goldson International Airport outside of Belize City, and the duration of the flight is around seven hours.
Once in Belize, there are plenty of exciting things to do and see for Canadians. Belize and its hundreds of offshore islands is a premiere destination for fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing as the waters in and around the Belize Barrier Reef are bursting with a rainbow of marine flora and fauna.
Other exciting activities in Belize include exploring ancient Maya cities. Belize was once the heart of the ancient Maya Empire, but when it collapsed around five centuries ago, the magnificent pyramids, temples, and buildings were lost to the jungle. Today, visitors can visit reclaimed ruins like Lamanai, Altun Ha, Caracol, and Xunantunich, the latter home to the largest Maya royal tomb ever discovered.
For nature lovers, there’s plenty to do and see on the mainland. Enjoy a day hike or a multi-day adventure in the pristine wilderness of the Cockscomb Basin Nature Reserve, the only jaguar reserve in the world. Or take a leisurely boat ride up the Monkey River to see traditional villages interspersed in a beautiful jungle setting.
The award-winning luxury resort of Chabil Mar is situated on the Placencia Peninsula on Belize’s southeastern coast. Ideally situated close to both the Belize Barrier Reef and popular attractions on the mainland, Chabil Mar is an oasis of comfort, featuring a seaside restaurant, lush tropical garden, and elegantly-appointed villas. With their motto of Beauty by Belize, Luxury by Design, the resort of Chabil Mar is offering 20% off accommodations from November 1 to December 15, 2016 for visitors coming to Belize in November and December. Chabil Mar can also arrange for complete Belize vacation packages to see and experience the top attractions in the country.
With WestJet now offering Canadians the chance to fly directly from Toronto to Belize, now is a perfect chance to experience the unspoiled natural beauty and enjoy the exciting adventures that has made this Central American country one of the hottest visitor destinations in the world.
