5 Fantastic Belize Escapes for People Who Hate Winter

5 Fantastic Belize Escapes for People Who Hate Winter

When the short days and cold nights have got you down, the best cure is a vacation in the sunny tropical paradise of Belize. With multiple affordable direct flights from the United States, enjoying a scuba diving expedition on the Belize Barrier Reef, swimming with whale sharks, hiking ancient Mayan ruins, eating delicious Caribbean food, and exploring a wide variety of exotic flora and fauna is now easier than ever.

If you’re heading down to Belize soon, here are the top 5 destinations to visit:

Ambergris Caye

Ambergirs-Caye-578x433
Located in the northeast of the country, Ambergris Caye is a delightful island with easy access to a variety of snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing opportunities.

Visitors to Ambergris Caye are recommended to stay at Victoria House, an award-winning luxury resort just minutes away from the town of San Pedro, the entertainment capital of Belize.

Placencia

Located in the southeast part of Belize, Placencia is a gorgeous peninsula filled with sandy beaches and unparalleled views of the sapphire waters of the Caribbean Sea. Whether you’re interested in fishing, swimming, or simply relaxing in a hammock underneath the palm trees, Placencia is an excellent place to relax and enjoy yourself.

Visitors to Placencia are recommended to stay at The Villas at Chabil Mar. Built with every modern luxury and amenity, the Villas give visitors a chance to relax on their own oceanfront veranda, or take a leisurely stroll down the beach to the nearby Placencia Village.

San Ignacio

The cultural heart of Cayo District in Western Belize, San Ignacio is your gateway to many of the finest Mayan ruins in the country. The small town of San Ignacio features a lively and diverse population, with plenty of outstanding restaurants and nightspots. Whether you’re interested in exploring the Mayan sites of Caracol, Cahal Pech, Xunantunich, or nearby Tikal across the border in Guatemala, San Ignacio is the place to stay.

Caye Caulker

Caye Caulker Belize
Located just 20 miles offshore from Belize City, the island of Caye Caulker is a popular destination for backpackers and budget tourists. Despite the fact that Caye Caulker measures just 1 mile wide by 5 miles long, it features over 30 locally-owned and operated unique hotels. Visitors can participate in scuba diving, either exploring the shallow lagoon on the east side of the island, or heading out further to see the Belize Barrier Reef.

Hopkins

A small fishing village located in Stann Creek District in the southeast part of the country, Hopkins is the home to the Garifuna culture, a unique indigenous people with mixed Caribbean and African roots. Visitors to Hopkins enjoy the slow-paced lifestyle in the village, and get a unique chance to witness traditional artisans and musicians in their element.

Now is the Best Time to Visit Belize

With Air Canada, WestJet, and Southwest Airlines recent entry in the market, flying to Belize from the United States and Canada is now more affordable than ever. Warm, sunny skies await you in Belize, with multiple convenient connections to other regional tourist destinations like Cancun, Guatemala City via Tropic Air, and Panama via Copa Air.

When it is cold and wintry in America, Belize is experiencing its dry season, with unbroken weeks of warm sunshine and refreshing tropical breezes. It might be winter elsewhere, but January through May is truly the best time to experience a wonderful vacation in Belize.
