The article titled ” Top Budget Travel Destinations For 2012” appeared on several popular websites and stated the following about Belize —
Why Belize in 2012: Belize tends to be overshadowed by its neighbors: Mexico, Guatemala, and Costa Rica, which in 2010 saw twice the visitor arrivals that Belize did. Yet this English-speaking nation has plenty to recommend it, including a bounty of exotic birds, stunning Mayan ruins, and the world’s second-largest barrier reef. On top of all that, Belize is also one of the region’s biggest bargains. In 2011, the dollar appreciated 1.3 percent against the native currency; as of September, the exchange rate was nearly two to one. The savings should last until December 2012, which marks the end of the 5,126-year era of the Maya calendar and the culmination of a year’s worth of festivals and sporting events—and a likely spike in hotel prices and crowds.
Budgettravel.com also highlighted that the best time to visit Belize is in the dry season which is roughly from February to April and indicated that if you arrive in late May, you will find the sweet spot for beach-ready weather, season discounts and thinning crowds.
