Record Breaking Tourist Arrivals at Tropic Air
Ambergris Today has been doing a lot of traveling lately and with all the recent Room Service (Resort Reviews) we have gotten great positive feedback from the tourism industry. “We are fully booked for the next few months,” is the statement we have received from many resorts, including Grand Caribe, Tranquility Bay Resort and Matachica.
A quick check around town provided really positive feedback from businesses including restaurants, golf cart rentals and bars. It is clearly evident that there is much activity on the island as tourists are flocking to Ambergris Caye. Fido’s Courtyard was teeming with young spring-breakers over the weekend and just walking by Elvi’s Kitchen you could see that the restaurant was filled to capacity the past few days.
We checked with local airlines and Tropic Air provided us with statistics of air travel for Saturday, March 12, 2011 which seemed to be the busiest day for the airline. It was unbelievable the amount of people exiting the planes at the John Greif III Airport, with staff working non-stop.
Tropic Air reports Pax # for Sat. March 12, 2011:
434 Passengers traveling Belize International to San Pedro
385 Passengers traveling San Pedro to Belize International
1459 Passengers traveling Countrywide
Since February 12th, Tropic Air has set a new record each Saturday, culminating with a record setting Saturday, March 12th.
These are really impressive numbers at a time when the Island needs it the most. We hope everybody takes advantage of this peak in tourism and treats our visitors with kindness, politely, and with the charm that everybody keeps falling in love and coming back for more.
