Belize voted as most wished place to visit on Airbnb
Airbnb, the world’s leading hospitality site, recently released its latest Wish List, voted on by hundreds of travelers, and Belize was voted as the place people most wanted to visit.
Forget skiing, when people want to get away nothing is better than sun, sun, and more sun. Airbnb discovered that the destinations with the highest percent of listings on Wish Lists are almost exclusively known for their warm weather and Belize is at the top.
Known for its white sandy beaches, luxurious island resorts, world class scuba diving at the Great Blue Hole and snorkeling tours, Belize is the ideal tropical destination. Nothing compares. And if that isn’t enough, Belize’s beaches and marine attractions are just miles away from the lush Central American jungles and pristine cave systems; it’s the best of both worlds.
Other destinations that followed Belize as top Wish List destinations included Okinawa, Japan; Savannah, Georgia; Turks and Caicos; Mendocino, California; Kyoto, Japan; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Margaret River, Australia; Jervis Bay, Australia; and Tamarindo, Costa Rica.
According to another one of Airbnb’s Wish List’s the most wished for kind of property experience was not a luxury hotel or condo, instead most people wished for a tree house! Other property types on the list included igloos, vans, lighthouses, caves, islands, trains, lofts and cabins. People seem to prefer smaller, cozy experiences.
So according to Airbnb’s Wish List travelers the ideal get away is a treehouse getaway in Belize! Awesome.
