Belize has been nominated as a top beach destination in Central America by Trip Advisor, the world’s largest travel site that assists individuals to plan trips using advice from real travelers.
According to the newly released “Top 10 Beach Destinations in Central America”, Belize ranked seventh through ninth on the Trip Advisor list. The three popular beaches nominated were: San Pedro, Placencia and Caye Caulker.
San Pedro is "La Isla Bonita" that Madonna made famous and is a tourist mecca that boasts great beaches and plenty of dive shops where you can enjoy the sun, sand, and sea.
Placencia Peninsula is a lovely little Belizean seacoast village in Southern Belize with sixteen miles of white sandy beaches and is a favorite destination for diving and snorkeling.
Caye Caulker is a small island with a rare combination of rustic, laid back charm and comfortable amenities that has very little resemblance to the more hustle and bustle Caribbean hot spots.Travelers report that it’s “not for the party animal,” and appeals especially to backpackers, painters, divers and snorkelers.
Other Central American Countries that made it on the Traveler’s Choice 2012 Awards list were Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Hondura.
