Sunday, November 23, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: The Belize Tourism Industry Association, Cayo Branch, has called on relevant authorities to address the poor state of repair of roads leading to nature reserves and archaeological sites in western Belize.
Those relevant authorities are the Belize Tourism Board and the National Institute of Archaeology and History.
In a statement issued on Friday, BTIA (Cayo) said that recent rains have further deteriorated road conditions on the eve of the tourism high season.
With bad roads leading to many of the highly sought after tourism sites in the Cayo District, BTIA is concerned that the it could deter visitors and result in huge financial loss for tourism stakeholders.
The BTIA (Cayo) statement names the road to Barton Creek Cave, the Mountain Pine Ridge road and the road leading to the Cahal Pech archaeological site as areas that require immediate attention and repair.
