No surprise to read THIS article – Belize has broken its overnight tourism records – smashed them in fact! In April the overnight percentage went up 24% compared to last year!!!!!You can tell in the village, the energy and buzz is much higher than in past years during low season – mid July feels more like late November as far as the people. It is still NOT crowded – you can go into any restaurant and not have a wait, and you can have the beach to yourself most days, which is one of the draws of this village (paradise without overcrowding!). But, the amount of tourists in the village can be seen in far more filled up seats at the bars and restaurants.
The village recently enjoyed Lobsterfest, so lobster is back on the menus, yay! Here is a montage of village images from the last couple weeks – even if you are enjoying your own summer across North America, the exotic and rustic look of this place can make you want to come back…
Gotta get a pic with the lobster…..
