Throughout the weekend, representatives of Belize’s media corps bonded together on an annual trip facilitated by the Belize Tourism Board (BTB). This year’s destination was Caye Caulker, more affectionately known by many as “La Isla Carinosa”. The trip was highly anticipated as it had to be put on hold for the past two years due to the pandemic. However, as the regulations were dropped, the sunblock and snorkelling gear were picked up and the group dove into the turquoise waters. The goal of the trip was to allow the media to experience Belize’s tourism product and promote it effectively as we enter the industry’s slow season. Although rain was forecasted, Reporter, Giovanna Moguel and Videographer, Shayanne Dena slipped into their swimsuits and braved the stormy weather to bring us this story.
