Flights between Mexico and Belize have become quite popular and Tropic Air has made it faster and easier to make that trip. They have even taken into consideration arrival times for European travelers. For those looking for an old world experience, a vacation in Merida may satisfy your soul. Or maybe you want to lie on a white, sandy beach during the day and party at night in Cancun.
Cancun is a popular connecting city for many people on their way to Belize. It is also a destination spot for Belizeans on vacation. It is known for its all-inclusive resorts, white sandy beaches, SCUBA diving, snorkeling, daytime poolside relaxation and night time party atmosphere. TripAdvisor has recently released their list of Best Value Hotels in Cancun – because who doesn’t like a good deal?
Chetumal has become a popular hub for those traveling to Belize. Although Tropic Air recently suspended their flights to Chetumal it is still easy to get there by boat or by flying to Corozal, (which borders Chetumal) and grabbing a taxi to take you over the bridge.
Although it is not considered a tourist site, many expats living in Belize travel to “Chet” for shopping at a few of the U.S. based chain stores like Walmart or Sam’s Club. The top 2 rated value hotels in Chetumal are Fiesta Inn and Los Cocos.
You may choose to pair up a trip to the picturesque town of Merida with your trip to Belize. There you will find an array of cultural activities such as museums, art galleries, outdoor music, dance performances in the park and even movie theaters.
Merida is another favorite among expats living in Belize for the shopping (add Costco to the list from above) and it is their preferred place to undergo complicated medical tests and surgeries not available in Belize. Here you can find Hotels in Merida.
