I heard it through the grapevine…
According to LOVE FM, our local radio station, the Belize Tourism Board was busy launching a new visitor satisfaction survey at the Maya archaeological site of Altun Ha this last week (23rd of May).
The Director of Tourism, Laura Esquivel Hampton, said that this is the first part of a project aimed at maximising the experience of visitors to all of Belize’s Maya sites while making sure that nearby communities benefit from tourism, so it sounds like good news all around.
We love (pun intended) hearing about these sorts of projects that show a commitment to looking after our guests and the communities they visit, and we encourage people to provide feedback about their Belizean experience. Belize is small enough, and everyone involved in the tourism industry is concerned enough, that your voice can be heard and actually make a difference.
So make sure you let your hosts, guides, front desk people and the BTB know what you like (or even dislike) about your stay in the Jewel. By working together, we can ensure that Belize remains the best little destination on the planet.
