In mid-May, the Avanti sales team went down to Belize for an annual meeting and all came back with fresh tans and a renewed appreciation for the amazing variety of travel options in Belize.
The local insects seemed to be on holiday, but the sales team wasn’t. They were inspecting hotels and rushing through the countryside to experience the essence of Belize in a few days. With Avanti’s local partner’s, Discovery Expeditions, the team got to glide through the jungle on ziplines and float down a river through caves in the Cayo District as well as unwind in the warm Caribbean waters in Placencia and Ambergris Caye.
But don’t think it was all fun and games. They had serious business to attend to: make sure Avanti offers the best accommodations, transfers and day tours for your clients traveling to Belize. And they did.
From Belize City to the Cayo District to Dangriga/Hopkins to Placencia to Ambergris, and a few continuing on to Caye Caulker, they traveled fast and they saw it all. To mention all the highlights would take a few hours, but they all came back with one major impression: Belize packs in a lot of different options for such a small country and English is the primary language, making it the perfect destination when you and your clients want to begin to discover Latin America.
“Ruins to reefs, Belize has it all,” was the refrain by the whole team at the end of the trip. So look for more news on Belize in the near future from all of us at Avanti and be sure to get the skinny when one of us visits your area.
