BELIZE CITY, Belize -- Air arrivals in Belize increased 13.4% to
more than 73,000 overnight visitors in the first quarter over the
same period a year ago -- more evidence of the travel rebound in
the Caribbean region.
Cruise sector growth jumped 65% in March and 55% in April over
the same months a year ago, bringing more than 160,000 passengers
into Belize City and beyond.
The first quarter is a "good omen" for the rest of the year, a
tourist spokesman said.
