Where to celebrate Thanksgiving in Belize
Many North Americans are making the decision to go out of town for Thanksgiving, and one of the increasingly popular destinations is in Belize. Specifically, the Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize offers a great location to celebrate Thanksgiving. The warm weather, delicious food and welcoming locals all combine to make a unique and memorable holiday.
Why Belize For Thanksgiving?
To start, there are plenty of direct flights to Belize now from both American and Canadian airlines. Air Canada and WestJet offer direct Canadian flights to Belize. Southwest Airlines, United Airlines and American Airlines offer competitive prices for flights to Belize from the USA. This makes getting to Belize relatively easy and affordable for the entire family. Along with that, the people of Belize have a fondness for the American and Canadian Thanksgiving traditions. Restaurants and resorts cater to the holiday with a combination of traditional American dishes combined with savory Belize-style sides.
Plenty To Do In Belize
Besides enjoying a delicious Thanksgiving meal in Belize, you’ll have the opportunity to experience a range of fun activities during your stay as well. You won’t have to worry about the crowds and stress of Black Friday the next day either. Instead, you can head for the beach to relax, or take a trip out to the Belize Barrier Reef for some snorkeling or scuba diving. It doesn’t have to end there either. Book a tour for a fun jungle hike to see the amazing diversity of Belize’s wildlife. While in the jungle, you can go ziplining or cave tubing through various Maya ceremonial caves. Another option is touring the many Maya ruins in Belize. Belize was the center of Maya civilization in ancient times, and there are many sites to choose from.
