Are you tired of those long-haul flights that leave you battling jet lag for days after your vacation? We know how frustrating it is to overcome sore backs, swollen legs, and a ruined sleep schedule right at the beginning of your vacation. As luck would have it, you can plan an equally amazing vacation with a journey to a destination that doesn’t include a mental and physical toll. Look no further than Belize, the Central American paradise that’s just a stone’s throw away from most North American cities. With a plethora of nonstop flights, Belize has become one of the most accessible and jetlag-friendly destinations in the region. So pack your bags and leave the compression socks and sleep masks behind, let Belize be next on your travel destinations list!

Proximity is Key

Like we mentioned before, Belize has a long list of nonstop flights straight from major city hubs in the Americas. From buzzing cities like Houston and Los Angeles in the United States, to southern destinations like San Salvador and Panama City, it’s all just one direct flight away. Major carriers like American Airlines, Delta, Southwest, and United Airlines provide regular services to Belize City, the country’s primary international gateway. This means you can skip the layovers and arrive at your Caribbean paradise without the fatigue of connecting flights. 

As opposed to other nonstop flights, you won’t have to worry about 10+ hour flights to get here. The longest flights are approximately only six hours from Calgary, Canada, and five hours from Los Angeles. Of course, the added bonus is not having to jump too many time zones! Forget all the confusing time changes, when you arrive in Belize your priority will be relaxation, not trying to tune your body to a new schedule. Being so close has never felt so good.
