By BBN Staff: The Canada-based travel site thetravel.com has told its over 4 million readers that Belize is one of the tourist destinations in the region that deserves more attention.
In its travel writing piece “15 Caribbean Destinations That Deserve More Hype (As Shown In These Real Tourist Photos),” released this week, thetravel.com uses actual tourist photos to make the point that the destinations on the list are a “must-visit.” The article highlights Caye Caulker as the place for travelers to check out if they are making a trip to Belize.
“Just a few miles north of Belize City is Caye Caulker. This tiny piece of land is dubbed as the ‘party island’ for its refreshing and unique twist on what everyone might refer to as a “tropical holiday.” Here you will find diverse dive sites and a plethora of water sports at reasonable prices,” the article said.
The exposure to the Canadian market and the world is even more critical for Belize as the latest data released from the Statistical Institute of Belize (SIB) shows that the tourism sector had a challenging fourth quarter of 2019. Despite gains made in the tourism industry the ‘Hotels and Restaurants’ subsector decreased by 5.7 percent during the quarter, as there were 15 fewer cruise ship calls during the fourth quarter of 2019, resulting in a reduction of 55,800 visitors when comparing the same period in 2018. Data from the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) also showed a 9 percent decline in Canadian visitors for 2019.
