By BBN Staff: Just over a week since its last positive international highlight, Belize has been noted again this time by CNBC, as one of the 6 best starting points for adventure travel.
CNBC published the article entitled “Here are the world’s top 6 ‘jumping off’ points for adventure travel in 2020,” yesterday, noting that the list was compiled by the Travel Channel. Belize City was first on the list which also included: Manchester, England; Phoenix, Arizona; Sapporo, Japan; Seattle, Washington; and Vancouver, British Colombia.
The destination is “brimming with Mayan ruins, world-class scuba diving and hidden temples pulled straight from Indiana Jones,” the article said.
The article also noted that, according to the Travel Channel’s 2020 Leisure Travel Forecast, some 52% of respondents are planning to do some kind of adventure travel in 2020. The figure bodes well for Belize, as tourists from the United States represent some 67 percent of the total visitors coming to Belize.
The article comes just 8 days after an article on Trip Savvy highlighted Mahogany Bay Resort & Beach Club, Curio Collection by Hilton, in MAbergris Caye, as Top 9 Best Hilton Hotels of 2019.
