If you live in or near Calgary, Canada, you can now enjoy a fantastic vacation in Belize. Starting on November 3, 2017, WestJet now flies non-stop from the Calgary Airport (YYC) to the Philip Goldson Airport (BZE) in Belize City. The flight only takes around five hours, making it really easy for Albertans to escape winter and enjoy the sun-kissed beaches and rainforests of Belize.
Adventures in Belize is the name to trust when it comes to travel, accommodations, and transportation in Belize. Staffed by local Belizeans with years of expertise in the travel industry, Adventures in Belize (AIB) specializes in creating bespoke vacation experiences.
AIB can help you book an all inclusive Belize vacation that includes the best of both worlds. You can enjoy exciting adventures on the mainland such as bird watching, horseback riding, cave tubing (exploring underground rivers by inner tube or canoe), zip lining, and rappelling down a majestic jungle waterfall. And you can combine those activities with all the fun of the islands, including snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing, sea kayaking, and stand-up paddling.
Other popular options in Belize include exploring ancient Maya sites like Xunantunich, Caracol, and Tikal (just across the border in Guatemala). These majestic cities were built deep in the jungle more than 2,000 years ago by the ancient Maya and then abandoned for reasons that archaeologists are still debating. In these cities, the ancient Maya builders constructed astronomical observatories, vast ball courts, and giant pyramids that rival those found in Egypt or Mexico. Other ancient Maya sites that can be visited include sacred caves where priests once conducted bloody human sacrifices in a futile attempt to appease their angry gods.
Belize and Canada are both members of the Commonwealth. Indeed, the Queen is the head of state in Belize, a fact that many Canadians who visit the country are surprised to learn. And the official language in Belize is English, making it really easy to talk to locals and get around.
Whether you're interested in touring ancient Maya ruins, going scuba diving, bird watching, or simply want to learn more about the different cultures in Belize, Adventures in Belize (AIB) has you covered.
