The Belize government is planning to build a new international airport at Ambergris Caye while improving La Isla Bonita’s infrastructure. Prime Minister Dean Barrow said that the government will “redevelop, redesign and expand” the Basil Jones airstrip into a new international airport. The upgrade of the airstrip to an international airport is part of an on-going development that is making travel to, from and within Belize easier for Belize’s ever-growing legion of global fans. Whether from North America, Europe, the UK, Asia or anywhere on the planet, travellers can now spend more time enjoying Belize’s many charms and less time getting to and from them.

Belize September festivities are already underway with one of the biggest events, the annual Belize Carnival Road March. Enjoy these vibrant carnival photos!
As with Chaa Creek’s Belize Natural History Centre, Chaa Creek Cares and our other projects, the Belize Zoo shows that true eco-tourism contributes to society and the environment while giving visitors the chance to reconnect with the nature.

We just received the news that Tropic Air, Belize’s friendly local air service, is organising a road show to promote Belize’s many charms to the people of Chile next December, and coming on the heels of Tropic Air’s successful Colombian road show of last June, and following the news that COPA Air is inaugurating a twice-weekly Panama-Belize run December 2015, we can’t help but feel that the country formally known as Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret is now anything but.
