By Aaron Humes: Belize continues to rake in tourism and environmental accolades as it welcomes back tourists who long for sunny skies and open spaces after being locked up by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This week, it is recognition by TIME magazine as one of the World’s 100 Greatest Places.
The blurb on TIME’s website notes the purchase of 236 thousand acres of forest covering nine percent of the national landmass as an effort to protect the spider monkeys, jaguars, and ocelots that call the forest home as an example of how seriously Belize takes protecting this pristine environment.
But it also lauds the delicate balance we strike as we re-open the economy, between conserving the nation’s natural environs and increasing tourism revenues.
It cites the recent opening of the new Alaia Belize, Autograph Collection, Marriott International’s first resort; the return and expansion of airline offerings from the likes of United Airlines and Alaska Airlines, and two new options for private stays near nature are the beachfront villas at the Itz’ana Resort & Residences and Valley Stream, a new ultra-remote private residence situated within 200 acres of lush rain forest.
All of this clearly shows that Belize is not Mother Nature’s best-kept secret anymore, if it ever was. Just be sure to be vaccinated against COVID and all that we have is yours.
