I think people should understand that travelling should not be seen as something that is human-centered. It should be understood that when you travel, you should feel honored that you could still see and enjoy the beauty of the world. You, as a human being, should be responsible for the few of the remaining beautiful places in this planet. Being responsible doesn’t necessarily mean that you are required to do something grand for the environment. It’s those little things that matter the most. If everybody starts doing those little things, I bet it could change the world.
In line with this, I chose Chaa Creek Belize as my ecotourism destination because it is one of the beautiful places that was taken care of by responsible travelers and locals alike. Belize is naturally rich because of its marine life and flora and fauna. As a fan of nature, visiting Belize would be a dream come true for me. And seeing The Great Blue Hole and the remnants of the Mayan civilization with my own eyes would be another item crossed off my bucket list.
