Beaches, beautiful rain forests, Mayan ruins and a renowned barrier reef are but a few reasons why Belize should be in your travel sights. Add to that the fact that Belize is the only Central American country that is primarily English-speaking. And did we mention that you can get there for a song, thanks to these deals from United and American Airlines? Airfares from U.S. cities are available for less than $220.
