Belize Tourism Board (BTB), September 3rd, 2012 – There is once again much excitement surrounding Belize. We are very pleased to report that our beautiful gem has been featured in the August issue of the Caribbean Travel + Life magazine. This magazine is a trusted source for travellers to learn about Caribbean news and get destination tips. The stories are based on first hand experiences from the writers. The magazine is published nine times a year and is the official consumer publication of the Caribbean Tourism Organization and the Caribbean Hotel Association.
“This article will create great exposure for the country. It will attract the travellers who are adventure seekers, which is definitely a target group of ours. We welcome all opportunities to invite a variety of tourists to experience the different wonders the country has to offer,” commented Hon. Manuel Heredia.
The headline on the magazine reads “25 Top Secrets,” under which the subtitle includes, “…Deepest Plunge in Belize.” The article was covered by media friend Jad Davenport and is entitled, “What Lies Beneath.” In it, Davenport guides the readers through “the sacred caves of Belize.” He highlights the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest reserve, Actun Chek (Footprint Cave), and, most of all, our Aktun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) cave. Davenport lets readers know what to expect when exploring these caves and also gives a brief history on the famous Crystal Maiden of the ATM cave. He describes his experience in the cave as “Indiana Jonesing.”
“It’s always exciting to see Belize featured in regional and international media. We try to ensure that our visitors have positive, memorable experiences because they take those back and share them with family and friends. Firsthand experience is always the best kind of exposure you can hope to get,” stated the Director of Marketing, Alyssa Carnegie.
Belize has been receiving amazing exposure, including fantastic reviews on trip advisor. We look forward to receiving other great reviews in the future! For more information, contact the Marketing Director of the BTB, Alyssa Carnegie at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone number 227-2488.
