As the winter season approaches and the temperatures shift to icy cold, more and more travelers are looking for an escape from those cold clutches and are looking for dreamy destinations such as Belize which has recently been named among the 14 best warm places to visit in January.
TripsToDiscover, an online travel site that is on its way to becoming the #1 travel discovery platform, listed Belize as a perfect escape for those who have gotten tired of that chilled-to-the-bone feeling and are looking for relief but are still undecided about their winter travel plans.
The article highlights Belize as being home to the world’s second-largest barrier reef, thus making it one of the top spots for snorkeling and diving. It also paid homage to Belize’s world-renowned site the Great Blue Hole, which it referred to as the ‘’holy grail’’ of all diving sites.
‘’The Great Blue Hole, one of the most popular attractions in the country sits in the center of an offshore atoll known as Lighthouse Reef, an island of coral 60 miles from Belize City. It’s the “holy grail” of diving sites and thanks to its depth of 480 feet, it boasts a surreal shade of blue that makes it look like a massive pupil in a sea of turquoise, ‘’ said the author K.C. Dermody.
Of course, escaping to Belize most definitely will have to include a trip to any of the country’s secluded beaches with wide open spaces that provide you with the privacy needed. For big spenders with deep pockets, who are looking for more privacy, the article suggested renting a private island.
Whatever that decision might be TripsToDiscover reminded its readers that wherever you venture to Belize’s average temperature is a balmy 78 in January, as well as its water, which is close to the same temperatures if not warmer.
The article listed 14 warm escapes such as Puerto Vallarta Mexico, Key West Florida, Aruba, Hawaii, Canary Island, St Vincent, and the Grenadines, Palawan Philippines, Belize, Sydney Australia, Galapagos Island Ecuador, The Cook Island, Laguana Beach California, Tucson Arizona, Isla Holbox Mexico.
While TripsToDiscover might have just let the cat out of the bag it is no secret that Belize’s warm tropical weather, its endless white sandy beaches, numerous snorkeling, and diving sites, plush rainforest and inland attractions, and a wide selection of flora and fauna coupled with Maya archaeological sites across the country continues to be a magnet for adventure seekers all year round.
