Once far off the beaten path, it’s getting easier than ever for LGBTQ+ travelers to enjoy a fabulous vacation in Belize. Just this week, both Mexican and Canadian airlines announced that they will be adding new flights to Belize, giving gay travelers even more options for visiting this fabulous and amazingly beautiful country.
Aeromexico, the flagship carrier of Mexico, announced that it will be offering a non-stop route to Belize for the first time beginning on November 17, 2018. Throughout the winter season until April 28, 2019, Aeromexico will be flying to Belize City from Mexico City each Saturday and Sunday morning at 8:30 AM with an arrival time of 10:30 AM. Return flights will depart Belize City at 12:00 noon and arrive back in Mexico City at 2:25 PM. Currently, the only flights between Mexico and Belize are between Belize City and Cancun, provided by Belizean air carrier Tropic Air.
WestJet, one of the world’s largest low-cost airlines, has been flying to Belize since 2016, the first Canadian airline to do so. WestJet currently operates three flights per week from Calgary and Toronto during the winter season, but they announced last week that it will be adding two new flights during the upcoming 2017/18 winter season. Adding in rival Air Canada’s four weekly flights, and Canadians have nine different options to choose from.
Combined with the dozens of weekly flights to Belize from the United States available from United, Southwest, Delta, and American Airlines, and it’s easy to see why Belize is rapidly becoming such an affordable vacation destination. With a very low population density and a terrific abundance of wild, pristine nature, Belize is rapidly becoming known as an eco-tourism destination. Popular adventures include horseback riding, bird watching, snorkeling, scuba diving, sea kayaking, wilderness hiking, canoeing, rappelling, and cave tubing (floating down underground rivers on an inner tube).
