Belmopan.-“Though recent news has been covering the hurricane destruction, we want to shift perceptions to remind travelers that the Caribbean remains open for business,” Karen Bevans, director of tourism for the Belize Tourism Board and vice chairman for the Board of Directors of the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO), told TMR.

While Belize, located on the eastern coast of Central America, was spared from Hurricanes Irma and Maria, a number of Caribbean countries in the northern Leeward Islands and the northern Caribbean were not as lucky – many of which are still recovering from the storms a month later.

“Because we are in a position to welcome visitors and are experiencing tourism growth, we want to use that bright spot to help others during this difficult time,” Bevans said.
