The Insider's Guide to Belize
What happens when a lifelong resident of Belize and travel professional with more than 20 years of experience compiles all of his knowledge about the country into one convenient guidebook? You get The Ultimate Belize Bucket List, a new book published by Larry Waight, the country's top travel marketer.
The Ultimate Belize Bucket List contains over 1,001 tips from a true insider on all of the amazing things to do and see in the country. Far beyond a simple listing of resorts and restaurants, The Ultimate Belize Bucket List functions like an all-in-one bible for travelers visiting the country.
Larry Waight was born and raised in the village of Bullet Tree Falls outside of San Ignacio in Cayo District. At age just 16, Waight began working in the tourism industry when he and his siblings would guide travelers to attractions in the region like the ancient Maya cities of Xunantunich and El Pilar. Waight's services soon were in high demand, and he began leading nature trips to explore the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve and enjoy inner tubing on the Mopan River. Waight later parlayed this experience into a successful marketing career working with the biggest name resorts, lodges, and guided tour companies in Belize.
Written and assembled over a period of four years, The Ultimate Belize Bucket List is Waight's response to the lack of timely information from guidebook publishers like Lonely Planet and Fodors. Belize has undergone radical transformations in the past decade, emerging from relative isolation to becoming one of the fastest-growing tourism destinations on the planet. Waight packed his book full of insider information, including tips about unique attractions far off the "beaten path."
The Ultimate Belize Bucket List is written in a style sure to appeal both to first-time visitors and experienced travelers in Belize alike. It includes basic information such as visa requirements and currency and exchanging money as well as detailed descriptions of the 101 most popular tourist attractions in Belize. But it is written in a friendly, familiar way that clearly shows Waight's deep personal love for the people and places of his native land.
If you're thinking of heading to Belize, be sure to buy a copy of The Ultimate Belize Bucket List on Amazon or your preferred retailer and consider staying at Belize Boutique Resort and Spa. Located on a stunningly gorgeous 1,000-acre property in the middle of the jungle, the resort is just a short drive from Belize City and the international airport.
