An article published by the MSN Lifestyle website highlighted the many attractions "off the beaten path" in Belize as part of their Travel Trends for 2017 series. The MSN Lifestyle article featured several popular tourist attractions in Belize, including the active archeological excavation at Xunantunich, an ancient Maya site and the Belize Zoo, an educational rescue center housing hundreds of indigenous species like jaguars, margays and Harpy Eagles.
The MSN Lifestyle article also described the famous Great Blue Hole, a circular submarine sinkhole located on the 130 km-long Belize Barrier Reef. Measuring more than 300 meters (984 feet) in diameter, the Great Blue Hole was rated by French marine biologist Jacques Cousteau as one of his top 10 scuba diving sites in the world.
Other top attractions to visit in 2017 in Belize mentioned by MSN Lifestyle included river trekking, jungle hiking, canyoning, and exploring ancient Maya sacred caves sites, including Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) Cave. The MSN Lifestyle article concluded by noting that Belize is the only English-speaking country in the region due to its long history as a British colony. Sites like Placencia and Corozal Town on the coastline were recommended for tourists to visit as a great place to experience cultural diversity and world-class seafood.
In conjunction with the publication of the MSN Lifestyle article, the Caves Branch Jungle Lodge has announced several new promotions.
