touristOver the past few years Belize has received nothing but good news when it comes to the Tourism Industry. And the good news just keeps pouring in. According to the Belize Tourism Board, as of October 2014, Belize has seen one million visitors into the country, through overnight and cruise arrivals and this is two months earlier than forecasted.


Figures show that In October, tourist arrivals increased by 6.7%, that’s more than the initial projection which estimated that October would have seen a decrease of 10.82% in overnight arrivals.


The number of visitors for cruise arrivals also surpassed the forecasted amount as 56,144 visitors were scheduled for October, but there were 1,769 more cruise visitors than expected.


Of note is that in the past nine years, Belize has hit the one million mark twice, in 2005 and 2010, with 1,036,904 and 1,006,547, visitors respectively. According to the BTB, the arrival of 1,018,705 visitors last month has already surpassed the 2010 arrivals.
