Tourist Arrivals Remain Steady in First Quarter of 2015

The new tourism figures for the first three months of this year are in. According to the stats from the Belize Tourism Board, overnight arrivals remained steady while cruise arrivals grew significantly over the same period in 2014. The B.T.B. reports that there was a one point one increase in overnight arrivals in March which was preceded by a small drop in visitors in January and February. Weather conditions in the US and Canada are attributed to the drop in numbers.  The cruise arrivals, however, shot up in January and March, by sixteen and fifteen percent but the number of visitors in February decreased by two percent due to cancellations of two cruise ships. Still yet, the B.T.B. remains optimistic about the number of visitors for the remaining months.
