Belize is proud to have the longest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere. But in 2010, the tiny country faced a huge problem — the potential loss of the reef’s UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Already under threat from coastal development, pollution and climate change, the reef’s species were being depleted by bottom-dragging fish trawlers.

To A Rainforest from the Reef

It would be a privilege to visit another land that has taken the time to put the ecosystem before the financial gain of tourism. I have visited home a few times since I moved up north and Key West is not like it was 21 years ago when I was fifteen years old. Many corporations and chain restaurants moved in slowly and changed the vibe of the island and along with it they have tampered with the nature of the island.

Protecting Belize From Reef To Rainforest

I want to be an eco kid. I want to help wipe Belize’s tears away. I want to learn more about why rainforests are important. I want to learn how our reef protects Belize and how we can protect our reef. By learning more, I can play my part as a ten year old child to help keep Belize clean, environmentally healthy and safe. I can teach other young people and adults different ways to protect Belize and wipe away her tears. As an eco kid I can learn how to protect Belize for many generations to come, and keep Belize beautiful from reef to rainforest.

Explore the Rainforests and Reefs of Belize

Belize is unlike much of the rest of Latin America in that English is spoken here by the majority of people rather than Spanish. It is more politically stable than the rest of Latin America and in general it feels more like a Caribbean island than a Latin one. Infrastructure here is improving rapidly but presently there still remain just three main roads. Chaa Creek still has a wonderful range of accommodation with gorgeous thatched cabanas and villas. It has a spa with full use of the canoe privileges. So check out Belize as a holiday destination and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

We Would Be Thrilled to Honeymoon in Belize

Our adventure began almost four years ago now when we went on our first date. He disguised it as a Christmas present, “in case it didn’t go well.” We have been dating ever since, and are getting an apartment together next month. This past June, he completely surprised me while on a trip to Philadelphia, PA when he pulled out the engagement ring he had been hiding in his room at home for about a month. We are currently planning a fall wedding, October 8, 2011.

My visit to Belize allowed me to love and appreciate nature at a deeper level.

For the horse ride, the horses were in excellent condition, the saddles and helmets were in great shape and our guide knew a lot about horses, the areas we went through and he even took us to a pyramid. The same was try for the canoe trip. Yes all of these were included and they were excellent.
