Canadian residents will be pleased to discover that starting in December 2017 Air Canada will start providing non-stop flights from Toronto to Belize. This decision to offer flights to the tropical paradise of Belize is just in time for people who are tired of the snow to head south and enjoy the warmer weather.
Belize is a small country located in Central America that is considered a true tropical paradise. Located on the Caribbean, Belize has an extensive coastline of pristine white sand beaches to enjoy as well as hundreds of cayes and small islands to explore. Diving and snorkeling are very popular. Inland, Belize offers adventures for everyone.
The Belize tropical rainforest is lush and untamed. The country is committed to preserving these forests and has made a large portion of the country protected areas. This ensures that the unique animals, birds and plants, some of which are only found in Belize, are safe in their natural habitat.
