How to Book It

You can fly to Belize City, Belize from these cities starting at ~$196 round-trip in coach on Delta:
- Los Angeles
- New York
Travel is from October 2015 through March 2016. There’s a 21-day advance purchase requirement.
I found seats from Los Angeles to Belize City in January for ~$213 round-trip in coach.
Most folks who visit Belize don’t stay in Belize City. There’s more to do outside the city, including snorkeling, scuba diving, and visiting Mayan ruins.
Fly from Baltimore between August and December, 2015. And from Los Angeles from November 2015 through May 2016. You’ll have to buy tickets at least 21 days in advance, and some days of the week are excluded.
And American Airlines is matching or beating this fare with flights from Houston starting at ~$222 round-trip in coach.Note: You can cancel a Delta e-Ticket before midnight the day after you book it, and receive a full refund.
And if you book a ticket with an online travel agency like Orbitz or Expedia, you may be eligible for a refund within a short time of booking your ticket. Check out my post on cancellation policies for airlines and online travel agencies for more details!
What About Southwest?
Southwest also flies to Belize and Costa Rica! I checked the same dates from Los Angeles to Belize City, and Southwest is more expensive.
It’s worth comparing fares on Southwest because you’ll get 2 free checked bags (and a friend can fly with you for almost free if you have the Southwest Companion Pass!).
I wonder if they’ll match Delta’s fare later today.
What If You’re Not in 1 of These Cities?Southwest – If you need more Southwest points, Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to Southwest. Plus, if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, a friend can fly with you for (almost) free! British Airways – If you’re a short flight away from an included city, you can save miles by using British Airways Avios points to book an award flight on American Airlines. Chase Ultimate Rewards points , American Express Membership Rewards points, and Starwood Preferred Guest points transfer to British Airways.
Get Free Hotel Nights With These Cards
If you book a cheap flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending!
Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals. But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized).
For longer stays and places without chain hotel you can book with points, Airbnb is a great way to save money. And most Airbnb homes have free Wi-Fi and a full kitchen.

Travel dates vary, but you can travel on most routes from late fall to early spring.
This is a terrific deal for a tropical getaway! Let me know if you book a ticket!
