This new content distribution channel allows Belize tourism industry stakeholders a unique opportunity to speak directly to travelers with highly relevant, personal, and informative content via a medium that continues to increase in popularity throughout the world, and especially on mobile devices. The podcast platform continues to grow in influence, and research shows that over one-third of the population in Belize's major target markets listen to podcasts, and about half of podcast listeners do so while traveling. The Belize Travelcast is the first of its kind destination-focused podcast in Belize as well as the Caribbean and Central America region for the travel market.

The Belize Travelcast will explore the people, places, events and experiences in Belize from a local perspective. Each episode will highlight a unique aspect of Belize that will resonate with travelers as they decide where to vacation or what to do in Belize when they visit.

Host Javier Gutierrez brings many years of experience in the Belize tourism industry and is a well-known personality throughout the country as a tourism professional as well as from his appearances on broadcast television and radio.
