Belize’s tourism industry continues to prepare for reopening, whenever that day may safely be. Although the international airport remains closed to incoming flights, this is the perfect time to begin planning a getaway that’s close enough; flights are actually shorter than you’d think. Before you know it, award-winning resorts, restaurants and activities will all be ready to welcome you once more.

We can only hope that the year 2021 in Belize is going to be an exciting one. Besides, the wonders of the world found only in Belize await you – a coral reef that runs the length of the coastline, verdant rainforests brimming with secrets of ancient Maya cities, and more. By planning ahead to visit Belize in 2021, you can be the beneficiary of all of this beauty and history.

Swimming with whale sharks is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that can, sometimes, be based on pure luck.

From elegant resorts located on private islands to boutique hotels filled with charming representation of Belize’s unique cultural mix, everything about Belize’s tourism industry has changed. That is, everything except our warm hospitality and service. Social distance naturally, while honoring the stringent health and hygiene practices implemented in 2020; from the way guests will be treated to resort discounts are all geared to welcome former Belize visitors back is one positive outcome of this hiatus.

While the world waits patiently for that day, you can begin planning for 2021. Browse websites of Belize resorts, where you can not only virtually tour properties but come up with an itinerary of places you don’t want to miss, whether that’s jungle trekking, indulging in your favorite water sport or just lying about in a hammock without a care in the world. Your 2021 visit to Belize is likely to feel very different now that you have lived through the virus and come out grateful, healthy, happy and perhaps wiser. Sometimes, losing something to find it again is one of the very best ways to live life in a more meaningful way; who wouldn’t want to have a 2021 visit to Belize be one of those things?
