The Belize Tourism Industry Association (BTIA) and the Destination Belize Editorial Committee are pleased to announce the theme of the 20th edition of the Destination Belize magazine to launch October 2018.


This issue will focus on the splendid cultural wealth of Belize — from its indigenous ancestry and multiple ethnic groups, to its diverse foods, its music, historical sights, festivals, and natural gems. Throughout the magazine, through fresh stories and vibrant images, visitors will discover and learn of unique ways to experience our Roots across the Jewel’s colorful districts, towns, islands, and communities, and learn of our fascinating heritage. And as they immerse in these authentic cultural adventures — north to south, inland and offshore — they will inevitably feel Belize’s intoxicating and transformative Rhythms, leading them to their own favorite pulse and corner of Belize.

The Destination Belize Editorial Committee is led by the BTIA with the support of representatives from the Belize Tourism Board (BTB), Oceana Belize, Belize Audubon Society (BAS), World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Chief Editor – Lebawit Lily Girma, Creative Director – Loskot Studios and Sales Agent – Smarter Hospitality Solutions.

Destination Belize is our country’s signature publication – widely distributed around the world since 1995. All articles featured within the magazine are written to educate readers on the natural attractions and adventure activities they can experience in Belize, as well as share the major milestones realized in the protection of our natural resources. The upcoming edition of the magazine will launch October 2018 with 50,000 print copies of the magazine and an online platform to include web ( and social media – taking Destination Belize Beyond the Pages.


We invite you to be a part of the 20th edition of Destination Belize.
