Ambergris Caye was named the No. 2 Relaxation & Spa Destination in Central and South America in the TripAdvisor.com Travelers’ Choice 2010 Awards.

TripAdvisor says: “Why visit Ambergris Caye? If you’re a diver, it’s a perfect departure point for a trip to the Blue Hole, a reef like no other on earth. It’s a perfect circle of limestone—400 feet deep with 200-foot visibility. If reef-diving’s not your cup of tea, find a spot on any of the local beaches and enjoy a laid-back tropical vibe.”

Ambergris Caye also was named No. 21 in the Top 25 Destinations in Central and South America and also the No. 10 Beach & Sun Destination in Central and South America.

TripAdvisor named Dangriga the No. 2 “Emerging Destination in the World." Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, was named the world’s No. 1 emerging destination.

About Dangriga TripAdvisor says: “Love culture, not crowds? Leave the bustle of Belize City for quieter Dangriga, at the end of the Hummingbird Highway. The town is a suitable base for exploring the Stann Creek district: visit the Maya Center and the world's first jaguar preserve, explore the beach and try snorkeling at the reef a few miles out.”

San Ignacio was named the No. 10 Outdoor & Adventure Destination in Central and South America. TripAdvisor says: “It’s true: parts of Belize are getting touristy. But San Ignacio remains rustic, making it a great base for budget-friendly tropical adventure travel. Canoe on the Macal River, or walk to Mayan ruins at Cahal Pec [sic] (just be warned: it's uphill).”

Tikal in Guatemala, a short distance from Belize’s western border, was named the No. 10 Culture & Sightseeing Destination in Central and South America.
