It is a privilege to welcome you to Belize. Each year more and more visitors from across the globe visit our beautiful country. Visitors to Belize have a choice of three destinations in one: the magnificent beaches and teeming reefs of the Caribbean, lush tropical rainforests of Central America, and the breathtaking temples of the Mundo Maya.
These remarkable and unique attributes combine to make Belize irresistibly inviting. To complement these attractions, we are a people who love to share our country with visitors. The rich cultural diversity of Maya, Garifuna, Creole, Mestizo, Asian, Middle Eastern, European—a polyglot people of many ethnic roots but Belizeans all—welcomes you.
We are confident that your visit to Belize will be enjoyable and relaxing, and that you will return to our shores frequently.
And on that note, I wish to thank those in the tourism community who work diligently, in season and out, to make Belize the leading destination it is. On behalf of the Government of Belize, I commend and thank the Belize Tourism Industry Association for its first rate work and achievements for Belize.
