I am proud to announce that Belize has been featured in the August “On location” issue of Recommend magazine. Recommend is one of the most popular magazines in the travel trade industry, existing over 43 years. The featuring of Belize on this magazine is no coincidence, since they only feature some of the best travel destinations around the world.
“We’re always ecstatic to see Belize highlighted in respected publications such as Recommend. We want the world to realize all that our country has to offer and consequently, make Belize a part of their future travels. This magazine in particular, keeps travel agents informed about what’s new and exciting and we’re really pleased to be featured” commented the Director of Marketing and Industry Relations, Alyssa Carnegie.
The August issue guides readers through Central and South America. The article on Belize speaks about Prince Harry’s visit in March, 2012, and also lists activities he should experience upon his return. It mentions the street fair that was held in his honor, in Belmopan, and his climb of Xunantunich. Some must do’s outlined for his future trip were diving with whale sharks, exploring the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, as well as horseback riding and mountain biking through Mountain Pine Ridge.
A section was designated to “What’s New in Belize,” which mentioned the opening of El Secreto boutique on Ambergris Caye and provides information on its amenities. It also speaks on the Maya 2012 celebrations. Finally, it enlightens the public about the name change of the Machaca Hill Lodge in Toledo which is now named Belcampo Belize. The website for Recommend also features an article further detailing how visitors can participate in the Maya “Countdown” taking place in Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico.
