Have you folks noticed an uptick in tourism down there lately? Airfares are getting higher and higher these days. I keep a few searches on update notices and it's cheaper to fly to Europe from SF than come to Belize right now! Twice the fares to Cancun. Guess I'll have to postpone a trip planned for next month.

I subscribe to that and several others. All VERY expensive these days. Over $500 to BZE and only $265 to Cancun......

it is the taxes & fees that make the airfare high.

Hello SailingWaldo..... I use to think it was some type of travel conspiracy so the world could control where and when we went places.... However over the years I've learned better, it turns out it is supply in demand (boring huh?)...... When living in California I did find during the summer months it was less expensive to travel to Europe and was told it is all about the students schedule ...... And then in the Fall/Winter months and spring break flights to the Bahamas and the southern Americas were less (of course if you book far enough in advance). .... We have not left the island in years, however I check often to try to get deals for friends & family..... If you are considering flying this way from California check in with United out of Sacramento or Southwest out of LA...... They were both always less than flying out of SFO..... Good Luck....

True, SFO is currently running over $700 through October and Sac is $450 or so. I guess things have gone up all over but right now I'm booked to Rome in October for $453 so Caye Caulker will have to wait. Just seems silly to charge practically twice the fare to Cancun.
Now if I can just figure out how to pay with gift cards.......
