Always be good to be a bit more vigilant when it is low season.
Useful tips for visitors, locals and new business owners to help you survive low season on Ambergris Caye.

The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) recently released figures showing Belize coming in at second place on the list of fastest growing tourist destinations in the Caribbean in the first quarter of 2014, behind only the Turks and Caicos Islands. The country registered 32,712 tourist arrivals in February, an impressive increase of 11.6% in the number of people discovering Belizean treasures on the same month the previous year.

This healthy growth was complemented by interesting figures, also released by the CTO, which broke these arrivals down in terms of the main markets that were visiting. These figures showed an increase of 11% in US visitor numbers in the first quarter of 2014 as well as a vast growth of 26.6% in visitors from Europe. - See more at: http://www.traveldailynews.com/news/article/61087/increasing-numbers-of-tourists-uncover#sthash.JYSOmX0L.dpuf

You're in luck if you're heading to Ambergris Caye. San Pedro has the best restaurants in Belize.
