Tourism is one crucial component of Belize because the government uses it to overcome poverty in the country. To this end, there are various tourist and eco-tourist attractions that Belize has to offer.
One primary attraction site of the country is the Belize Barrier Reef, known to be the largest reef in the Western Hemisphere and the second-largest in the world. The area features some of the most exotic wildlife you will ever come across, and this, including the vibrant coral, makes the place a highly favored spot among visitors. Its pristine environment is one of the reasons the site was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. Seven marine protected areas exist within the reef, and each region has its peculiar wonders of nature to offer.
Belize has a well-preserved natural beauty, and the country pays so much attention to eco-tourism, so visitors will experience energy-efficient hotels, eco-tourism tours, and renewable resources. Some of the eco-tourism centers are Swallow Caye Wildlife Sanctuary and the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary.
Waterfalls, cayes, and national parks are scattered across the country, and tourists are sure never to have a dull moment.
