Abstract

An internet search on Belize will quickly reveal that the country markets its tourism product largely on the basis of the natural and cultural attractions it has to offer. Essentially, it is portrayed as an ecotourism destination. In simple terms, ecotourism can be defined as tourism that occurs in natural areas. The International Ecotourism Society (TIES) provides a more comprehensive definition, which they associate with a list of guiding principles. TIES defines ecotourism as "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people" [1].
