  • Aeromexico, the flag carrier of Mexico and one of the largest airlines in the world, has just announced that it will begin flying to Belize beginning on November 17, 2018. This announcement marks the first time ever that a Mexican airline will be offering non-stop service to Belize.

    Throughout the 2017/18 winter season until April 28, 2019, Aeromexico will be flying twice a week from Mexico City to Belize City. Each Saturday and Sunday morning at 8:30 AM throughout the season, the Aeromexico flight will depart for Belize City, arriving at 10:30 AM. The new flights are expected to increase cultural and tourism ties between the two neighboring countries, according to a statement by the Belize Tourism Board’s director. Currently, the only airline flying to and from Mexico and Belize is Tropic Air which offers service between Cancun and Belize City.

    One of the best places for Mexican, American, European, or any other traveler flying into Belize via Mexico City is the lovely Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize. Often described as “the island you can drive to” thanks to its narrow isthmus connecting it to the mainland and its white sandy beaches overlooking the Caribbean, Placencia was originally named by the Spanish. “Punto Placencia” in English means Pleasant Point, an excellent name for this 16-mile long stretch of golden sands.

    At the southern tip of the peninsula is Placencia Village, a laid-back community of some 2,000 souls that holds a place in the Guinness Book of Records for having the smallest main street in the world, a lovely, pedestrian-only sidewalk lined with colorful murals, boutique shops, cozy cafes, and beachfront restaurants.

    Just a few minutes away from Placencia Village is the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame award-winning resort, Laru Beya. Translated to English from the local Garifuna language, Laru Beya means “on the beach,” an apt description for this beach resort that has a three-story open-air restaurant, freshwater infinity swimming pool, and the country’s only miniature golf course.

    Laru Beya and the Placencia Peninsula are perfectly located near all of the top attractions in the country, including the finest scuba diving and snorkeling spots on the Belize Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other popular nearby attractions include ancient Maya cities, the vast Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary (home to the world’s only jaguar conservation project), and the well-named Monkey River, a jungle watercourse which winds its way through one of the most pristine and wild regions of Belize.
