Annually, over 50 editors and writers worldwide comb through a year’s worth of ratings, reviews, and data to identify the best of the best in travel around the world. However, with the arrival of COVID-19, judging based on three months of business as usual for 2020 did not allow for the usual methodology to be followed. Thus, they focused on businesses and industries that overwhelmingly met the moment: meaningful solutions with the end goals of staying afloat, protecting their people, and making a difference during a year that’s been challenging for so many reasons.
“Considering that Belize’s GDP was valued at $4,815 per capita in 2019 – over $60,000 less than that of the U.S. – it stands to reason that this Caribbean country provides a strong set of standards for the U.S. and other countries to emulate.”
Based on Belize’s robust measures and protocols in response to COVID-19 and the resulting editorial coverage, Belize proved worthy and ultimately captured the nod of the judges. Blue Caribbean Belize Management is proud to be part of this recognition through the Tourism Gold Standard and Safe Corridor certifications of our properties…and the work our amazing team does every day to set the example!
