Responding to the burgeoning popularity of vacationing in the Central American paradise of Belize, Southwest has announced that they will be offering non-stop service from Denver to Belize City in 2017.
More than 13,000 Denver area residents traveled to Belize last year. The new non-stop service from Denver to Belize City will begin on a trial basis with Saturday flights between March 11 and April 22, 2017. Since 2015, Southwest has been operating non-stop service to Belize City from its hub in Houston’s Hobby Airport. Should the new Denver-Belize City routes prove to be popular, Southwest has stated that it will add more service.
Thanks to its pristine landscapes and more than a third of the country set aside as protected parks or nature reserves, Belize offers visitors a chance to enjoy a truly unique eco-friendly tourism experience. With more than 180 miles of coastline on the Caribbean that are just a short distance from the Belize Barrier Reef, part of a UNESCO World Heritage site that is one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems on the planet, Belize has increasingly become popular with visitors who want to explore an unspoiled marine paradise, an ideal setting for swimming, snorkeling, sailing and scuba diving.
“Last year, Belize saw a huge increase in tourism numbers,” said Larry France, the marketing manager of the Chabil Mar resort in Placencia, Belize. “And now we’re starting to see the airlines respond. First, American Airlines announced that they will be offering service from London to Belize and now Southwest has announced that it will be flying non-stop from Denver. We look forward to welcoming even greater numbers of visitors to our wonderful country.”
Chabil Mar is an award-winning resort on the beautiful Placencia Peninsula on the coast of southeastern Belize. The Placencia Peninsula is one of the top visitor destinations in the country, world-renowned for its beautiful beaches and close proximity to both the Belize Barrier Reef and the Cockscomb Nature Preserve on the mainland. Chabil Mar features beachfront villas and offers guests comprehensive jungle and sea packages to all of the top destinations in the country.
