About the Author
Born in Ethiopia, Lebawit Lily Girma was nine months old when her parents moved to the West African country of Côte d'Ivoire. She has loved travel ever since: exploring cultures and learning languages on various continents, including Europe and the Americas.
After practicing law in the U.S., Lily took a leap of faith to pursue her passions: travel, writing, and photography. After a three-week visit to Belize in 2010, she was determined to return. A year later, Lily was commissioned as an in-house writer and photographer for the Belize Tourism Board for three months. She explored Belize extensively, sharing her adventures through a collection of online articles, blogs, and photo essays. Belize's diverse cultures and people struck a chord and she returned to Belize for long-term stays while researching freelance articles on the country.
In addition to this title, Lily is the author of Moon Belize Cayes and Moon Dominican Republic, and her writing and photography have been published by CNN Travel, BBC Travel, Delta Sky, Sunday Times Travel Magazine, MorningCalm, Every Day With Rachael Ray, The Travel Channel, and AFAR, among others. She was also a major contributing writer and senior editor for the 2016-2017 edition of Destination Belize Magazine, Belize's main tourism publication.
In 2016, Lily was awarded the Marcia Vickery-Wallace Memorial Award for Excellence in Travel Journalism from the Caribbean Tourism Organization.
When she's not visiting family in the U.S., Lily is based in the Dominican Republic, and travels to Belize every year.

If all Moon books are written as well and concise as this one then I will buy a Moon book for every trip in the future. A minister at my church calls me "the fun maximizer", but the Moon Belize Handbook written by Lebawit Lily Girma takes it to a whole new level. I've been to Belize once before and Africa three times and try to get the most out of every major trip so some of her suggestions were exactly what I witnessed three years ago. The way this author wrote and the places she went really fit my style of adventure and looking under every rock for something “fun”.
Reading this book is like having your own personal travel guide with you – I could almost picture myself driving a 4-wheel drive in the Mountain Pine Ridge of Belize with this author in the back seat suggesting I stop for gas before driving into “one of Belize’s most beautiful landscapes”.
She has been a personal trip planner for me and it’s the one book that will travel with me this week to Belize as my own travel guide. I’d like to thank her for all the hard work putting together such a travel treasure!
I purchased it and have already read it twice. Planning to have my husband and Dad both read it before we depart.
The book is very well written and contains a lot of information for each area of Belize. Each section contains so much information and great detail for where to stay, where to eat, and even direct phone numbers to the best taxi drivers or transportation services in the area. I know that I'll be flipping through this book for restaurant suggestions, bar suggestions and maps! Each section has several detailed maps along with the full-color photos.
To be honest this is the first time I have purchased a travel book (we usually just rely on the internet) but since we're taking my father with us I wanted to have something to hand him before our trip and I knew he was more likely to read an actual book than a bunch of stuff printed off the internet. I'm so glad I did! I think this was the gateway drug to eventually having a book-case full of travel books (and hopefully they'll all be dogeared and dirty from being tossed in backpacks and drug across continents).
Bravo, Lily Lebawit Girma!
