President Extends Condolences on the Passing of Sarita Tillett

Dear BTIA Members:


It is with great sadness that we note the death of Sarita Tillett, co-founder of S&L Tours. Sarita and her husband Lascelle were hard working pioneers of our industry at a time when tourism was virtually unknown in Belize. Sarita’s attitude was always upbeat no matter what the circumstances. The qualities she exhibited: love of nature, love of country and the authentic way in which she related to visitors and locals alike made her the perfect ambassador for Belizean tourism. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Sarita’s family as well as the thousands of friends around the world whose life she has touched. We will miss her very much.


Yours in Tourism,

Stewart Krohn President, BTIA
