Belize featured on Wanderlust Travel Magazine

Wanderlust Travel Magazine has just published an article highlighting the greatest wildlife experiences in Belize. Ranging from seeing jaguars in the Rio Bravo Conservation and Management Area to watching manatees play and frolic in the waters of the South Lagoon, Belize is a country bursting with amazing opportunities to enjoy wildlife.

Some of the options recommended in Wanderlust Travel Magazine include scuba diving or snorkeling the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. Located just off the coast of Ambergris Caye, the reserve allows divers and snorkelers to see a myriad of eels, turtles, dolphins, rays, and fish in their natural habitat. Other underwater adventures highlighted in the Wanderlust Travel Magazine include diving with whale sharks in Gladden Spit. Every spring, migrating schools of whale sharks arrive in Belize to feed on fish spawn, giving divers a unique chance to interact with these enormous fish that can weigh up to 12 tons.

For more traditional wildlife experiences in Belize, Wanderlust Travel Magazine recommends bird watching in the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary. A slew of avian species that include parrots, woodpeckers, raptors, kites, kingfishers, jabiru storks, and herons proudly display their plumage in this enormous protected area. For mammals, Wanderlust Travel Magazine recommends seeing black howler monkeys at the Community Baboon Sanctuary (these monkeys are called “baboons” locally) and white-collared manakins in the Cockscomb Basin Nature Reserve.

“Once again, it is truly wonderful to see the independent press sit up and take notice of our beautiful country,” said Larry France, marketing manager of Chabil Mar. “We welcome Wanderlust Travel Magazine readers, and we look forward to helping you plan an unforgettable vacation in Belize.”

Chabil Mar is a multiple award-winning resort located on the Placencia Peninsula in southeastern Belize.

Conveniently located close to all of the top attractions of the Belize Barrier Reef, including snorkeling, diving, fishing, and sailing, as well as to the top destinations on the mainland, Chabil Mar is named for a Maya term meaning “beautiful waters.”

Wanderlust Travel Magazine was founded in 1993 by two British travelers who were frustrated by a lack of the right mix of wildlife, activities, and cultural insights in travel publications. Dedicated to providing a community of people who are passionate about travel. Combining photographs, videos, and testimonies from fellow community members, Wanderlust Travel Magazine serves as a digital scrapbook to help travelers store planning information and discover some of the finest destinations in the world.
