Belize City is an increasingly popular destination for those seeking vacation or life abroad. The wonderful thing about Belize is that it is an English speaking country, it has one of the best housing markets for the money in the world, and the exchange rate from the US Dollar to the Belize Dollar is currently 2 BZD for every 1 USD. This is great for Americans looking to have a great time in this beautiful country.
Belize City only has a population of 57,169 people and has views of the Caribbean Sea that are to die for. The city itself protrudes off the mainland in a way that allows for a view of the sea and plentiful beaches nearly all the way around the city.
The Belize City – San Pedro Ferry can take you to a range of islands off of the coast. If you wish, you can take a short flight to the east, where the islands of the Caymans and Jamaica lie below Cuba.
However, Belize City contains everything you need to have the time of your life. American Airlines is offering a great round trip deal, including all airfare taxes both ways, from Los Angeles to Belize City, for only $238.
This is such an extremely cheap price for this 4,350 mile trip. Your dollar will go twice as far in Belize and due to the wonderfully small size of this beautiful country, and you can enjoy all of the beaches, restaurants, leisure locations, resorts, and entertainment options.
Check out the Cayes and Islands while you are there. The Ambergris Caye is very popular and you can fly on a local carrier called Maya Island Air.
