Are you looking for a unique vacation spot this year – a place that offers you plenty of opportunities for R&R while also giving you the chance to appreciate Mother Earth? You’re not alone. Ecotourism is becoming more popular, as it allows travelers to enjoy a pristine area of the world while fostering a respect for other cultures and for the environment. For many of these travelers, the country of Belize tops the list of places to visit.

Man in the Realm of Nature

As humankind irreverently pollutes this precious but delicate environment, our planet struggles to survive an increasingly destructive war we have foolishly waged on our very life support system.
