An African-American woman says that she and her sister had an awful time visiting Belize. The young woman had done two videos. One of them, she says (quote) “Us thinking Belize would be a cool vacation because it has a black population but instead, experienced racism, colorism, and had a bartender make us a drink mixed with bleach” End quote. She also adds that she would not visit Central America ever again. In the other video, she outlines what is mostly negative experience about the bartender who served the drink and the owner of the establishment. Minister of Tourism, Anthony Mahler was asked about it today and promised that it will be looked into.
Anthony Mahler, Minister of Tourism: “Well we have to look into it. I’ve heard about the situation but that isn’t a part of us. That has never been, we’re a diverse country, and we live in harmony for the most part so I will have to do some investigation into the hat but the number one feedback that we get from people who visit Belize is the warmth of the Belizean people and we will continue to do our part in terms of providing the training opportunities for us to improve the quality of service in this country.”
