The Southwest Effect to Bring More Growth to Belize

Southwest Effect to Bring More Growth to Belize

Southwest Airlines has recently increased their international footprint with a new flight from Denver to Belize City that began on March 11, 2017. This joins Southwest’s existing Houston-Belize flight that began in 2016 and a new scheduled route from Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood that will begin on June 4, 2017. Southwest’s entry into the crowded US-Belize travel market has sent airfare prices to historic lows as reported by top travel sites and others.

Tourism is definitely on the rise to Belize. Visitor numbers have increased year over year, and Belize has reported double-digit increases continuously for the past five years, including a 13% jump in 2016 alone. Celebrities are increasingly turning to Belize as well. Whether it’s members of the Trump family and the British royal family on vacation or A-list celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio investing in properties, Belize is rapidly becoming a top destination for the jet set.

Now that Southwest and other major airlines are offering so many non-stop flights to major cities across the United States and Canada, retirees and investors in Belize can easily stay in touch with family, friends, and businesses back in North America. And residents of northern Belize have access to the airport at Cancun for additional low-cost flights to North America.

With increased air connections and rising popularity, now is the best time to invest in real estate in Belize. A hot market and increasing interest in prime properties is expected to result in price increases as more investors and retirees learn about the benefits of home ownership in Belize. Top destinations in key areas like the north of Belize are conveniently close to the islands, mainland nature reserves and parks, ancient Maya ruins, vibrant expat communities, and first-world infrastructure.

Belize is the only country in the region where English is the official language. A small country about the same size as Vermont, Belize has just 360,000 residents, allowing expats and retirees to live in beautiful locations surrounded by pristine nature and an abundance of fresh air and sunshine. The government of Belize has minimal residency requirements that allow qualifying individuals to import all of their personal belongings tax-free, including cars and light airplanes. Belize has a stable, peaceful, and democratic government and a transparent judicial system inherited from the long centuries of British colonial rule.
