A bunch of our students are travelling in Belize this springbreak, hitting many of the famous ecotourism sites. After all Belize is probably one of the first ecotourism destinations in the world, up there with Costa Rica, Ecuador, Dominica and even Mexico. See the early work by Boo.

Belize is pretty neat, easy to get around, and has lots of neat places to visit. Trouble is, like Costa Rica, it is being "loved to death" by American Tourists.

Visit Belize soon, before it becomes Florida.
