The result is more than 50 spectacular trips, plus the best travel apps, tour guides, gear, tips for traveling green, and advice for traveling solo. “Whether you’re looking to go big for an expedition, splurge on a luxurious paradise, or plan an epic family trip, OUTSIDE has unearthed fifty travel gems that will inspire you to renew that passport,” said OUTSIDE Editor Chris Keyes. “We are delighted to be recognized for the appreciation and commitment our Pelican Beach Belizean team has had in protecting and managing this natural treasure in an eco-friendly manner in spite of the growing pressures from growing tourism interest in Belize. We love the fact that the majority of our guests become friends and family,” said Therese Rath, managing director of Pelican Beach Resorts.
