Belize - Discover How To Be
Discover an escape from everyday life. A place not defined by the expected, but by the unimagined. Here, schedules are optional. And constraints are hard to come by. This is a place where the land and sea are as unique and authentic as the culture. A place where destinations can be located by map, but only found with the soul. The true Belize experience is discovered when you leave all notions behind, and begin to simply be. Belize. Discover how to be.

In January, the Belize Tourism Board re-branded it’s marketing identity with the launch of a new campaign complete with re-designed logo and theme, which urges visitors to “Discover How To Be.” A promotional video was launched simultaneously, but the BTB and its marketing partner Olson had to get clearances for the images and the music – which seemed to take an awful long time. But, just in time for September, the video was released in Belize today. Built around Honduran Aurelio Martinez’s song, Santo Negro – produce by Benque VIEJO’S StonEtree records, the BTB says, quote, “The images are authentic, unaltered and profound.” “

“Discover How to Be” Belize with the new video release by the B.T.B.

The Belize Tourism Board has released a new video entitled ‘Discover How To Be,’ which you will see later in this newscast. The catchy three minute sales pitch of everything Belizean is a mix of breathtaking footage, vibrant images and pulsating rhythm courtesy of Garifuna singing sensation Aurelio Martinez. According to B.T.B.’s Director of Marketing Alyssa Carnegie, the video captures the essence of what Belize is all about, and will resonate with Belizeans and pique the interest of travelers.

The video is a part of B.T.B.’s rebranding effort which started earlier this year, and is available on all of B.T.B.’s social media sites, as well as on travel belize dot org.

Why didn't they utilize the image of a cruise ship in this video? Or, why did they exploit images of Belize non consistent with cruise ship tourism?

I agree completely with both statements! My husband's first visit to Belize was via cruise ship...I wrote a paper in college right before they started docking in Belize hoping that it would fall through and that they would GO AWAY back then!

Be One With Belize Part 1: Introduction To Belize

Beautiful Introduction movie from the board of tourism about BELIZE!

Be One With Belize Part 2: The Sea of Belize

If You like Scubadiving this is the place to be ,the underwater world is just Amazing Belize is rightly considered one of the top scuba diving and snorkeling destinations on the planet. The Belize Barrier Reef, second only to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, runs the length of its coastline, and the country has three open-ocean atolls. Diving and snorkeling are superb all along the barrier reef; the following are just a few of the truly standout sites and dives.

Be One With Belize Part 3: The Jungles of Belize

When people think of Belize, they often think of tropical beaches and the country’s famous Blue Hole and coral reef — the second largest in the world after The Great Barrier. At least, that’s what I associated Belize with. But more than 65% of the country is forested and my Frommer’s Guide taught me that the region was once at the heart of the Maya empire. Archaeologists estimate that one to two million indigenous people lived in this area. Today, Belize is home to 178 plant species, 247 different marine flora, over 550 species of birds and who knows how many animals. Here, you’ll find five different kinds of wild cats; the jaguarondi, puma, margay, ocelot and the jaguar. Did you know that Belize has the highest concentration of jaguars than anywhere else in the world? There are also howler monkeys, green iguanas, boa constrictors and the list goes on and on. And just in case you’re curious, the national animal is the tapir. The best part of Belize is that more than half of its land and marine areas have been set aside as national parks, nature preserves and wildlife sanctuaries. That’s why some call Belize nature’s best kept secret.

Be One With Belize Part 4: The Ancient Maya

The Country Of Belize is dotted with Mayan ruins to name a Few Altun Ha (Northern Belize): One of the most easily accessible Mayan ruins from Belize City then you have Lamanai (Northern Belize): One of the more interesting and picturesque Mayan ruins in Belize, Lamanai features three large pyramids and is accessable by boat Xunantunich (Cayo District and Western Belize): Xunantunich is an impressive, well-excavated, and easily accessible Mayan site, close to San Ignacio El Pilar (Cayo District and Western Belize): El Pilar just may be the most underappreciated major Mayan city in Mesoamerica. The site is huge, with over 25 known plazas, covering some 40 hectares. Excavation and exploration here are in their early stages, and I actually think that, in time, El Pilar will join the ranks of Caracol and Tikal as one of the major Classic Mayan sites of this region.

Caracol (Cayo District and Western Belize): Caracol (www.caracol.org) is the largest known Mayan archaeological site in Belize, and one of the great Mayan city-states of the Classic era. Located deep within the Chiquibil Forest Reserve The archaeological evidence indicates that Pusilhá was a traditional Maya "elite" led urban complex. There are known to be eight rulers that are associated with the Pusilhá emblem glyph from the late Classic period with a possible two additional from the Terminal Classic at one time it was closely bonded with Copan and Quirigua

As carved Stelae and The ceramics evidence showed . It also seems likely that there were connections between Tikal and Caracol as those polities rose to prominence in the Petén
