After a sluggish first half, tourist arrivals to Belize are beginning to surge.
The country showed a 6.9 percent increase in stayover arrivals in the third quarter of 2015, compared to the same period in 2014.
That was buoyed by a 19.3 percent improvement in arrivals in September, the highest increase ever recorded for the month of September for Belize.
Air arrivals accounted for 74.7 percent of total overnight arrivals in the period, and US visitors showed a 28.55 percent jump.
America continues to be the largest tourism source market to Belize, making up around 65 percent of arrivals.
