    It is awesome that we have once again made it to the top ten with the Blue Hole. This has been the case for quite a few years now, I am surprised our media just caught on. Perhaps it wasn’t CNN doing the rating and someone else.

    All the others very positive….WITH THE EXCEPTION of our beaches being some of the best in Central America, as a Belizean it hurts me to say this but at the same time I am a honest person but our Beaches are not among the best in CA.

    Roatan, Honduras’s biggest bay island has a beach that is called West Bay Beach. NOW THAT IS ONE OF THE BEST IN C.A.

    Lets not talk about the beaches in Costa Rica because those are gorgeous. ITS NOT OUR FAULT , its just simply mother nature doing its thing.

    Belize could become once again the paradise it once was, if we can get the right people in government. I believe that there are many Belizean American that would come home to help bring the coutnry into the 21st century. The Belize people are so use to being abused by the government that they frown upon that. Wake up people, become like Puerto Rico and become a part of America.
