The Ultimate Belize Bucket List - The New Travel "Bible" for Belize

Until a decade ago, there were very few international flights into Belize, and much of the country was a remote wilderness only visited by the most intrepid travelers. Today, a lot has changed, and Belize has risen to become the fastest-growing vacation destination in Central America visited by British royalty and Hollywood celebrities. In response to this growing surge in tourism, lifelong Belize resident and travel professional Larry Waight has just published The Ultimate Belize Bucket List.

Containing over 100 tips from a true insider, The Ultimate Belize Bucket List serves as an all-in-one "travel bible" for anyone considering visiting the country. Unlike other guidebooks that are written by authors who visit Belize for a couple of days every few years, The Ultimate Belize Bucket List is authored by a man who was born and raised in Belize with over 20 years of experience in the travel industry.

At just age 16, Larry Waight and his siblings in the village of Bullet Tree Falls near San Ignacio were earning money by guiding travelers to difficult to reach attractions like the El Pilar archeological site, the ancient Maya metropolis of Xunantunich, and the vast Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve. Waight quickly realized that sharing his love of Belize with others was his calling in life. For more than 20 years, Waight has worked tirelessly to promote Belize as a special and beautiful country.

The Ultimate Belize Bucket List contains information on the 101 top attractions in Belize, including Waight's personal favorites like cave tubing (floating down underground rivers on an inner tube), the island of Ambergris Caye, and Garifuna drumming. The book is also packed full of insider tips about mom-and-pop restaurants few tourists know about and information about local cultures, customs, food, and music.

"I love sharing the beauty and wonder of my country with visitors, but unfortunately, much of the information out there is out of date and confusing," said Larry Waight. "With my new book, I'm hoping to create an all-in-one bible for anyone who wants to visit Belize. I also wrote it to help my fellow Belizeans learn more about their country and appreciate all of the amazing things it has to offer."

The Ultimate Belize Bucket List will be on sale at Amazon and more than 40,000 bookstores around in the world in both print and digital format later in the month. Larry Waight is already hard at work writing his next book about his beloved Belize.

"I absolutely love this guide to Belize, among all others that have come before it. I have known Larry for 9 years and from the first meeting I recognized his knowledge for his country, not to mention the love he has for it. His enthusiasm came forth from that very first conversation. As a marketer of a highly recognized resort in Placencia, Belize, I immediately became engaged with Larry's passion for his homeland and began communicating with him about all things Belize from that day forward. This book brought forth all of that love and passion that is within him. I am so proud of his work and highly recommend this Belize guide for all who wish to discover or expand their knowledge of a truly wonderful country, its culture, ancient and near history, present day adventures and of those persons who are instrumental in its tourism offerings. Congratulations, Larry for creating a work of art as beautiful as Belize deserves." - Larry France, Chabil Mar, Placencia, Belize

This book is full of descriptive details that will whet your appetite. He tells us about Belizean holidays, history, natural wonders, Maya sites, and many of the most popular places to visit, and does it in a way that is fun to read and gives the reader an inside look at the country of Belize. A great read for anyone contemplating visiting Belize, and is also quite interesting to those who know the country well." - Marty Casado, Founder of, Ambergris Caye, Belize
