WHAT IS ECOTOURISM? According to the Quebec Declaration, it "embraces the principles of sustainable tourism... and the following principles which distinguish it from the wider concept of sustainable tourism: Contributes actively to the conservation of natural and cultural heritage, Includes local and indigenous communities in its planning, development and operation, contributing to their well-being, Interprets the natural and cultural heritage of the destination to visitor, Lends itself better to independent travelers, as well as to organized tours for small size groups".
For a country the size of Belize, only 9,000 square miles, to set aside over 3,000 square miles green foliage is remarkable, and testifies to the value Belizeans put on the wonders of nature, and their phenomenal environment. This is a sign of greatness and is probably unequaled anywhere.
Ecotourism vacations deliver thrilling and unique nature adventures amidst extraordinary ethereal environments and hideaways.
