“I wish I had 50 more years,” is all Mrs. Celi McCorkle had to say to the gathering at the BTB Tourism Awards ceremony that took place on Saturday, August 1, 2015. The award’s show, now in its 13th year, celebrated a special 50 Years of Tourism on Ambergris Caye.

The highlight of the evening was a celebration of a pioneer in the tourism industry for the entire country of Belize. Mrs. Celi Nunez McCorkle, whose hotel, Holiday Hotel, is celebrating 50 years of service to San Pedro, also marks the commencement of tourism in Ambergris Caye and in a way, the entire country.

Celi’s perseverance in opening the first hotel on the island and building her services to cater to visitors was paramount in kicking off the tourism industry, Ambergris Caye now being the number one travel destination in the country. Celi says it is 50 years of commitment, passion, hard work and vision and she would want 50 more years to continue doing it.
