Belize Tourism is changing. When Karol and I first came to Belize in 2003 it was in October as this was our slow season in Lakeside Arizona also. The island was very quiet and the average age of visitors was 55-75, we fit right in! But, now as we visit the island we see children! Yes, over the years things have slowly changed as Belize is appearing on the radar of every major travel outlet as exactly what it is, the PERFECT place for not only beach lovers but adventure lovers also.
If purchasing an investment or tourism property has ever crossed your mind, NOW is the time to move. With the world in such chaos Belize is a safe harbor from most of the world events.
