New Record for Overnight Tourists in Belize

The hotel industry continues to benefit from a record-breaking stretch for tourism in Belize. The Belize Tourism Board recently released its statistics for overnight tourism in Belize for the months of January through May. The figures show a 7.4% increase in overnight tourists arrivals when compared to last year’s incredible numbers.

March was the most impressive month with 32,240 tourists arriving and spending at least one night in Belize. February recorded the second most arrivals with 25,778. January kicked off the year with 24,263 tourists spending the night while 23,699 overnight tourists came in April and 21,824 came in May. Though May recorded the least number of tourist arrivals in the five months, a case could be made that May was the most impressive month since it also recorded the highest increase when compared to last year’s amount of 19,289, a 13.1% increase. Airport arrival numbers account for over 70% of the overnight tourism.

There has also been a 34.9% increase in cruise visitors over this record-breaking period.
