Avanti Destinations tours Belize

A group of seven representatives from Avanti International enjoyed a quick tour of Belize this past weekend to get a grasp of what the country has to offer. The group visited the Cayo District, Belize City, Placencia and San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. In speaking with Harry Dalgaard, President of Avanti Destinations, The San Pedro Sun found out that of the group, four were first time visitors. The travelers are agents for Avanti, and as such, sell Belize as a destination worldwide.
Avanti has seen resurgence in travel this past year, and Dalgaard believes that Belize needs to continue pushing forward and advertise itself as world class destination. In terms of infrastructure, Belize offers competitive resorts, locale, and experiences. “The number one asset is the friendly people,” stated Dalgaard; “That and a variety of products offered for everyone who comes to visit.”
Avanti Destinations specializes in building custom travel itineraries for independent travelers. They sell travel to Europe and Latin America (including Central America) and they work along with a Destination Management Company (DMC) in each destination. In Belize, the DMC is Discovery Expeditions. For more information on Avanti, visit their website at

38 is great!

38 is certainly great, and Helda Santos of Roadkill Bar held a rocking karaoke party on Wednesday night to celebrate. The San Pedro Sun was there and managed to get some pictures of the happy birthday girl and all friends who swung by to celebrate, have cake and sing a song or three!!
Once again, Happy Birthday Helda!!
