When was the last time you got snail mail that wasn’t just bills or junk? The Belize Tourism Board is aiming to change that with their new postcard program.

“In a world where billions of emails, text messages, Tweets, Snapchats and other digital communications are sent each day, nothing beats the excitement of opening the mailbox to find a handwritten postcard from a far-flung place,” says Karen Bevans, Director of Tourism at the Belize Tourism Board.


“We know travelers are very curious about Belize, so we want to connect them directly with warm and friendly Belizeans who know this country best. We’re also very excited to receive postcards from the U.S. and learn more about all the places our visitors live,” Bevans says.

Through November 9, send a handwritten postcard from your hometown to the Belize Tourism Board. A team of local Belizeans will respond to postcards with fun facts and tips about visiting the country.

The best part? Sending a postcard could win you a free trip to for two to Belize. One lucky winner will get the best kind of mail: a postcard stating he or she has won.


To enter, send a postcard of your city to:

Belize Tourism Board

P.O. Box 325

Belize City, Belize

Postage is $1.15 from the US, and don’t forget to include your return address. Your snail mail must be postmarked by November 9, 2016 to be eligible to win. Complete rules can be found here.
