Belize Featured in Islands Magazine

Belize City, Tuesday, July 6th, 2004 Belize was notably featured in an 11-page article in the June 2004 edition of Islands Magazine, a travel magazine that is published 8 times a year by Islands Media in Santa Barbara, California and has been in publication for over 20 years. The article was written by Jeff Greenwald and photographed by Art Brewer who visited Belize in November of last year.

The article entitled “The Last Lost Islands of the Caribbean” contained approximately ten colorful photos of Belize together with descriptive data of the country’s many tourist attractions in the south. The article showcased Belize’s marine and other inland attractions such as Placencia, Laughing Bird Caye, Ranguana Caye, Southwater Caye, Tobacco Caye, Pompion Caye, and Little Water Caye, located not too far from Laughing Bird Caye. The very detailed article also highlighted the Garifuna culture, as the travel writer and photographer were on Southwater Caye for the 19th November and were told of the entrance of the Garifuna in these waters in 1832. The article also made mention of many of Belize’s natural attractions; namely the country’s second largest barrier reef and referred to the more than 300 islands, cayes, and shallow reefs that scatter out from the coast like interstellar dust, to form protected anchorages and spectacular diving. The author further emphasized Belize’s 70 types of hard corals, 400 species of fish, and placed the reefs in Belize among the best diving destinations in the world.

“Belize is rich with vibrant cultures, and boundless beauty,” comments Director of Tourism, Tracy Taegar. “The continued international exposure of our country adds to increased awareness of Belize as a vacation destination and popularity among visitors,” Taegar noted.

As of recent, Islands Magazine, in collaboration with the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) awarded Belize’s Lamanai Outpost Lodge and Research Centre, second place in its Annual Sustainable Tourism Award Program. One of the common goals of Islands Magazine is to promote environmental and socially responsible tourism in the Caribbean.
