We are also happy to serve as a resource to develop itineraries and secure media rates for writers who either do not qualify for the hosting program or cannot accept sponsored trips.

Please complete the below form at least four weeks prior to requested travel dates.

If you have any issues with the submission form, please email belizeengage@olson.com.
