Belize Travel

Flights to Belize are frequent and because Belize is conveniently located just over two hours from the two major gateway cities of Miami and Houston, it is no wonder that the majority of visitors entering Belize do so via the airline industry.   The four international airlines serving the country include American Airlines, Continental, U.S Airways and Grupo Taca. Delta Airlines is also marked to begin serving the country in December 2004.

Imagine the excitement of boarding a water taxi bound for one of the many exotic islands of Belize. The engines power up and the vessel speeds off leaving a white foamy wake in its path.
