Belize is now less than a month away from the arrival of Southwest Airlines to our shores. The low-budget airline begins operations from Houston on October 15, 2015 and tickets are now on sale. It is now easier to get to Belize with airlines like Southwest flying to Belize in October and Copa Airlines flying from Panama to Belize in December. In addition, other airlines like American Airlines, Delta and United flying to Belize are offering cheaper flights in what has become known as “The Southwest Effect.” Belize continues to be one of the top destinations to visit in Central America and the Caribbean, and one of the top places to visit in Belize is Ambergris Caye, which TripAdvisor recognizes as one of the best islands to visit in the world.
