By Benjamin Flowers: The world-renowned publication National Geographic has listed Belize among the top destinations for travelers to visit in the upcoming year.

National Geographic’s recent travel piece “25 amazing journeys for 2022” feature’s the top picks for destinations from the publication’s global editors. The piece notes that while the COVID-19 pandemic has changed when and how people travel, the desire to travel remains alive and that Belize is among those countries travel seekers should definitely visit for a unique experience.

“This year’s list celebrates a number of World Heritage sites in honor of UNESCO’s 50 years of helping to safeguard cultural and natural treasures,” National Geographic said.

While the entries are not listed in any particular order, Belize is the fourth country on the list, coming behind Russia, Namibia, and Australia respectively. The piece highlights conservation efforts being done in Belize, noting that the Nature Conservancy had purchased 236,000 acres of tropical forest in northwestern Belize to create the Belize Maya Forest Reserve.

“Along with saving some of the most biodiverse forests in the world from denuding and development, the new protected area—which is contiguous with the neighboring Rio Bravo Conservation Management Area (RBCMA)—closes a huge gap in a vital wildlife corridor that runs from southeast Mexico through Guatemala and into Belize,” National Geographic added.

Belize has been featured in numerous prestigious publications this year, such as the recent mention in the England-based luxury travel magazine Condé Nast where resorts in Belize were featured for winning the Johansens’ Awards for Excellence 2022. The feature in National Geographic further galvanizes Belize’s place as a top tourism destination worldwide and gives the country some much-needed promotion as the tourism sector continues on its long road to recovery after the global travel lockdown of 2020 due to the pandemic. National Geographic also recently featured Belize as one of the six best places in the world for birdwatchers.
