By BBN Staff: This morning the San Ignacio/ Santa Elena town council and Mayor Earl Trapp issued a statement expressing his support for the Tour Guides, Tour Operators and the Cayo Cave Guide Association.
In the statement, he says: “We cannot sit back and watch this intrusion from Guatemala and other foreign operators continue.”
Mayor Trapp stressed that he embraces the guides in their continued efforts to secure their lively-hood and the tourism industry.
He also declared that he will take all necessary steps to give full support to Belizeans to ensure that the tourism industry remains vibrant, locally sustainable and viable.
He informed the public that today, a Fuente del Norte cruise bus violated the traffic laws and was dealt with immediately.
“Not until our guides and tour operators are granted the same courtesies in Guatemala can we allow this continued infringement,” he said.
