Saturday, September 29th, 2012


Press Release – Belize City, Belize – September 26th, 2012 – Exciting News! Belize’s extraordinary Blue Hole has been featured in the Traveler’s issue of National Geographic magazine. The August/September 2012 issue features a story on “World Wonders, 10 Places to Celebrate.” National Geographic Traveler is the world’s most read travel magazine and uses a sense of story-telling complemented by sensational imagery.

“We’re very happy to see our magnificent country being continuously covered in these world renowned magazines, especially that of the National Geographic Traveler” commented the Director of Tourism, Mrs. Laura Frampton.

The overall theme of this magazine is “Nobody Knows the World Better.” In this issue, writer George W. Stone attempts to bring recognition to “lesser known jewels of natural beauty and cultural tradition” that are sometimes overlooked and even threatened. The article mentions Jacques Cousteau’s theory on the formation of the Great Blue Hole. He believes that this phenomenon is due to geological shifts from over 150,000 years ago.

The Blue Hole is among other worldly wonders such as the largest mud brick structure located in Mali, and “the rock garden of the gods,” the Wadi Rum Protected Area located in Southern Jordan.
