Belize: A COVID-19 Free Destination just 1 Flight from North America

by McNab Editorial Team

With North America being Belize’s primary tourism market and so geographically close, Belize is poised to be an ideal destination once travel reopens for tourism. Belize has successfully contained the first wave of COVID-19 in country, reporting zero active cases since 5 May, 2020. Today, businesses reopening are staggered alongside continued and necessary precautions. Although domestic travel is expected to resume first, we want to ensure international travelers know Belize is “the right destination” in a post-lockdown world.

Belize’s Borders

To date, Belize’s borders remain closed as a precaution to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. However, once travel reopens, Belize won’t only be a safe destination to vacation, but an easier alternative to arrive. With our close proximity to the U.S. and Canada, a direct flight to Belize could be just two hours away. In the US, major cities include Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, Houston, and Dallas. Denver is just about 4 hours away, while Los Angeles is approximately 5 hours away. Given our low-volume tourism and the lowest population density in Latin America, Belize allows you to naturally self-isolate.

Ray Caye Island Resort hosts a combination of just 3 villas, 2 honeymoon suites and 12 resort rooms on this 7.4 acre private island. And with nearly a mile of private shoreline and limited guests at once, Ray Caye makes for a tropical solitude.
