How To Be a Tourist in Your Own Country

See on Scoop.it - Cayo Scoop! Best of Cayo’s E-Mag.

Here’s a great entry from a local Belizean for Chaa Creek’s 2012 Maya Winter Solstice competition.  There is still a week to send in your entry.  Well, done, Alberto Matus!

"It’s important that we all realize that being a tourist in one’s own community increases awareness about lesser-known sites, arts, culture, and economic development strategies, as well as demonstrates that our country holds myriad local gems ‘right under our noses’.  Our jewel is invaluable, as locals we need to start exploring at the same time conserving our natural beauty and resources. As active citizens we must adapt Eco approaches like Chaa Creek, invite and share our beauty with guests from other countries."
