It’s the Thanksgiving weekend and things are picking up! Tourists are on our beautiful island, walking around, dining in different restaurants and shopping everywhere - meaning that the much anticipated high tourist season is finally here.

This year has been a very tough one for all business owners as it has been a very dormant year with very little tourist arrivals and generally slow business on the island. The US recession has definitely left its mark in Belize. Luckily things are shaping up and things are looking brighter just as we are about to say good bye to this year.

Tourist arrivals from now till the end of the year look bright as airlines have confirmed a good number of reservations and resorts/hotels are also claiming to have most, if not all, of their rooms booked as well; projections for months ahead look positive.

“We have been waiting for this Thanksgiving weekend to come,” commented one business owner of Barrier Reef Drive. “It’s the time when we see more tourist arriving to the island and with this year being a very slow one, we are happy to see large groups of tourist walking up and down the streets, visiting the gift shops, and enjoying our beautiful island paradise. This was what was missing for the longest. Our Isla Bonita looks alive!”

So it’s time to show our visitors our beautiful ways, greet them with warm smiles and welcome them to paradise! Let’s get to work!

    If Belize tourism could talk to West Jet in Canada and get them to fly to Belize it would be cheaper air fare and have more Canadians to come to Belize and would help the local bussiness that my thoughts.
