Happy World Tourism Day from Belize
Today we celebrate World Tourism Day. World Tourism Day is recognized yearly on September 27th. The idea of a day dedicated to tourism each year is to foster awareness about the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic value. Building on this years theme “Rethinking tourism”, today we reflect on Where is tourism going? Where do we want to go? And how do we get there? Looking at the sector’s growth, both in terms of size and relevance.
In Belize, tourism is one of the most important economic sectors being the #1 Foreign Exchange Earner for the Economy in Belize. This year World Travel & Tourism Council recognised Belize among top 10 nations most reliant on tourism. In celebration of this day and importance of this industry to Belize, today we share with you what we appreciate most.
Belize Barrier Reef
Stretching across Belize’s coastline is the Belize Barrier Reef. Measuring more than 180 miles long, it is the most remarkable reef in the West Indies. Belize is paradise below and above the surface, home to one of the most diverse and vibrant marine ecosystems. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1996, the Government of Belize has worked to preserve this amazingly unique ecosystem for generations to come. Today on World Tourism Day we celebrate the Belize Barrier Reef and its beauty.
