imagesSince the beginning of the New Year the Jewel has been highlighted on several travel lists as a premier destination to visit in 2017, the latest feature, published by the Gold Coast Bulletin, however lists Belize in a more unconventional way. Gold Coast lists Belize as one of the top 10 poor countries that tourists won’t regret visiting. According to the article which was publicized today, travelers holidaying in developing countries often raise questions and concerns – like, ‘Is tourism really helping the local people?’ or ‘Am I damaging the environment by visiting?’ The article goes on to state that Ethical Traveler, an organization that researches policies and practices of developing nations, compiled the list using data from Amnesty International and the United Nations to determine the 10 most ethical destinations.

Gold Coast also adds that the destinations featured on the list are making a big impression for all the right reasons. Belize is the first destination featured on the list, highlighting Belize’s Caribbean beaches, jungles, Mayan ruins, the barrier reef and the Great Blue Hole as obvious reasons to visit. The article also says Belize is a great destination for visitors on a budget.


The article then says that Belize also earns recognition as an ethical destination for 2017 with several world-leading examples of sustainable tourism, along with new attitudes that saw the long-standing law criminalizing homosexuality overturned in 2016.


Other countries featured in this out-of –the-box article are; Chile, Costa Rica, Dominica, Mongolia and Uruguay, among others.
