Eco-Friendly Stays in Belize

The organic garden at Belize's Turtle Inn is just one of the resort's many eco-practices.

Belize is best known for its lush rain forests, Mayan ruins, and gorgeous barrier reef — one of the world's best sites for snorkeling and scuba diving. As so much of the country's tourism is dependent on its breathtaking natural surroundings, a determined commitment to eco-friendly practices can be found in most hoteliers throughout the country, and Oyster has stayed in everything from compact eco-lodges to rustic-luxe hideaways during our visits to this small Central American country. Check out photos of our favorite eco-friendly stays — and find out what exactly makes them green — in this slideshow:
