February 3, 2009 By: Joe Pike


belize_240

The Government of Belize has committed to a four-year, $13.5 million dollar plan to promote and practice responsible tourism development in the country. The new sustainable tourism initiative outlines infrastructural projects that focus on the long-term preservation of Belize’s natural resources, as well as developments in four of the country’s more popular tourism destinations, including San Ignacio in the Cayo District, Placencia in the Stann Creek District, San Pedro on Ambergris Caye and Belize City. In Belize City, infrastructural developments will include a pedestrian link from the cruise ship port to the city’s downtown area, allowing locals to benefit from cruise tourism; as well as re-surfacing of the street, installation of wider sidewalks, lighting and landscaping. In Placencia, a natural disaster management plan will be put into place, along with the construction of an extended pier, allowing visiting yachts and boats to dock and access the area.  In San Pedro, an outlet mall will be built on the western side of the town, which will create new jobs and local opportunities for growth.  And, in San Ignacio, the sustainable tourism projects will focus on improving accessibility to, and preservation of, key archeological sites.  In addition, a town cultural center will be developed to help tourists access all the services San Ignacio has to offer.
