CNBC: Belize a Great Alternative to Mexico and Caribbean Destinations

Once an isolated backwater that was difficult to reach, in recent years, Belize has emerged as one of the top destinations for American travelers seeking an alternative to overcrowded vacation spots in Mexico and across the Caribbean.

In a recent article published by CNBC, Belize was identified as a top destination for travelers wishing to avoid both overcrowded beach destinations as well as Caribbean tourist hotspots that suffered damage during last year’s hurricanes. Located just south of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Belize was untouched by 2017’s spate of hurricanes and has hundreds of miles of pristine beaches and offshore islands to explore.

If you’re looking for an alternative to Mexico and Caribbean destinations, here are five great reasons to choose Belize:


Belize Vacation Ideas

In Belize, the locals are world-renowned for their genuine friendliness and hospitality. Instead of being treated as a meal ticket, visitors in Belize are warmly welcomed as part of the family. Oh, and everybody speaks English as Belize was formerly a British colony.

Natural Beauty

Belize Vacation Ideas

More than half of Belize’s territory is in the form of a national park, protected conservation area, or a wilderness sanctuary. Simply put, Belize’s greatest asset is its incredibly diverse nature, including pristine rainforests, thick jungles, and vast broadleaf forests that are home to a cornucopia of tropical birds, flowering plants, and exotic wildlife.


Belize has fewer than 380,000 residents, but the country is home to several diverse cultures, including the living descendants of the Maya who built enormous pyramids and temples all across the landscape. Visiting Belize is a great chance to learn more about local cultures and traditional handicrafts, music, and food.

Outdoor Adventures

Whether it’s snorkeling and scuba diving on the offshore reef or horseback riding, bird watching, and zip lining on the mainland, there’s no shortage of amazing things to do and see in Belize. Other popular activities include cave tubing (floating down underground rivers), sea kayaking, rock climbing and rappelling, and visiting animal rescue centers and organic farms.


In Belize, it’s really easy to have fun. Life in Belize follows a laid-back, Caribbean approach, and it seems like there’s always a party, festival, or holiday going on. If modern life has you stressed out, there’s no better cure than a vacation in Belize!
