By BBN Staff: National Geographic is compiling a guidebook on the world’s 50 best dive travel destinations and is including Belize on the list.
According to the Belize Tourism Board (BTB), two writers from NatGeo, Chris Taylor and Carrie Miller, came to Belize today and will be here until June 3 conducting research for the publication. During their stay, Taylor and Miller will visit various key tourism destinations countrywide. The BTB is also arranging for the writers to meet with local media tomorrow to speak about the publication.
Belize is off to a great start this year with positive mentions in international publications, with scuba diving being one of the areas that have gotten international attention. In April, globally renowned news carrier CNBC published a travel writing article praising Belize as one of the most popular destinations that Americans are traveling to.
As a part of that article, Alyse Cori, owner of the travel company Travelwize, praised the Blue Hole and the Barrier Reef as two “must see” destinations in Belize.
“It’s a scuba divers dream,” Cori said.
Regardless of Belize’s position on the list within the finished product, just being on the list will bode well for Belize’s ever-expanding tourism industry.
