A group of international travel writers arrived on Ambergris Caye at the beginning of the month upon invitation by El Secreto so they can experience firsthand one of Belize’s newest resorts and also promote the country’s major natural attractions.
Members of the group included travel writers and photographers from Caribbean Living Magazine, Destination Weddings & Honeymoons, Nylon Magazine, Robb Report Exceptional Properties and Recommend Magazine arrived on November 1. Maya Island Air gave the group the VIP treatment once they arrived at Belize Phillip Goldson International Airport and gave them one of the most scenic flights to Ambergris Caye. They were whisked away for a private aerial tour of Belize’s Great Barrier Reef before flying to San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye.
El Secreto was host to these US based travel writers and a few more journalists from Mexico and pampered each one of them with the luxurious accommodations, food, services and spa treatments that the resort has to offer. They also had the opportunity to snorkel at Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley, tour downtown San Pedro and dine at the famous Elvi’s Kitchen.
The resort also hosted island dignitaries and special invited guests at two separate events for them to meet with the travel writers. At a welcome dinner the group was presented with a special video introduction on Belize that was hosted by a representative of the Belize Tourism Board and before the left, a tropical night was hosted in their honor where they met with local media and island officials.
El Secreto Resort is located 11 miles north of San Pedro Town and just recently opened its doors in October 2012. With all the great publicity and word of mouth in and around the country, we know that El Secreto will not be a secret for much longer. Learn more about the luxury resort at www.elsecretobelize.com.
