Many partners, one destination…
With the momentum and guidance provided under the National Sustainable Tourism Master Plan (NSTMP) and in collaboration with the Belize Tourism Board’s Marketing Plan 2016-17, the next two decades offer a unique opportunity for Belize to build upon its strengths and to take advantage of the strategic opportunities presented.
The works achieved in the past 5 years is the foundation for continued tourism success. This can be measured through an increase in visitor arrivals in 2015.
Under programs such as the Belize Rural Development Program (BRDP), archaeological and historical sites received needed upgrades to facilitate visits through the “Making Tourism Benefit Communities Adjacent to Archaeological Sites” project.
The United States is our largest tourism market, accounting for 63.1 % of overall arrivals to Belize in 2015 while the European market (the second largest) accounted for 12%.
