It seems that everywhere we turn Belize is splashed across magazines and in on-line articles as an affordable place to retire, a good opportunity for investments and is gaining popularity as a great vacation alternative to Cancun or other Caribbean destinations.
With nearly 40 percent of the land and about 13 percent of the marine areas protected by government and private conservation agencies, Belize is authentic and offers an array of must see species of wildlife, the second largest barrier reef in the world, and is steeped in the history and culture of the Maya.
But with all this exploding economic activity, many conservationists feel that we are harming the very thing that brings tourists and investors to our shores, the reef with its marine life, the wildlife preserves and all the many creatures.
