Another Place to Add to Your Must-Visit List
By Hideaways Staff

Belize is hot. And we're not just talking degrees. For a compact country, it certainly has a lot to offer. From Mayan ruins to rainforests, flyfishing, scuba diving, and ecotourism, there is much to see . . . and do! But, be warned: the word is getting out. In 2002, there was a 15 percent increase in airport arrivals over the same period in 2001. And this amplified interest has prompted US Airways and Air Jamaica to begin flights to Belize, and American Airlines and Continental to add to their existing flights.

With its new level of attention from travelers, small towns like Placencia—in southern Belize— have focused more attention on catering to visitors. Every summer, Placencia puts on a spectacular Lobsterfest. This year, from June 27 to 29, the locals will celebrate with Caribbean-style lobster dishes, dancing, a blessing-of-the-boats ceremony, and a fishing tournament that could land a winner up to $2,500. If you plan to visit Placencia, check out The Inn at Robert's Grove, the town's newest luxury beachfront resort. Also in response to a growing interest, the Lodge at Chaa Creek, a world-class eco-resort located in western Belize, just opened its new accommodations, the Tree Top Suites. Situated on a 330-acre private nature reserve, the new thatched penthouses seem to defy gravity. They stand at eye level among the highest branches of the hardwoods that surround them along the banks of the Macal River. The suites are literally perched on 40' pilings and are decorated in hand-woven Mayan tapestries.

We?ve always loved Belize and we hope it will find its way onto your must-visit list too! But go soon— before even more travelers discover this country for themselves.
