Escape the Winter Blues With a Trip to Sunny Belize
There’s no need to suffer through another wintry season of cold and snow when the sunny tropical country of Belize is so easy to get to. All you’ll need is a swimsuit, towel, and your favorite pair of flip-flops when you visit Belize in the winter as daytime highs never fall below 81° F (27° C), and the water’s always perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Belize is an ideal choice for Americans and Canadians who want to escape another icy winter as there are non-stop flights to the country (airport code: BZE) from major cities like Calgary, Denver, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Toronto, Newark, Dallas, and Miami. Flying time even from cities in Canada is just five hours, and it takes less than two hours to get to Belize from Florida or Texas. And if you’re already planning a visit to Central America, Aeromexico, TAG, and COPA Airlines make it easy to include Belize in your itinerary.
Despite being a very small country, Belize offers a wealth of options for travelers. The mainland is dotted with charming little villages and towns while the Caribbean coast features over 200 miles of gorgeous beaches. There are also more than 600 ancient Maya pyramids, palaces, and sacred caves that visitors can explore as Belize was once the heartland of the highly advanced Maya culture. And if adventure is what you seek, options in Belize include horseback riding, bird watching, zip lining, and cave tubing.
Belize has also been blessed by having North America’s largest coral reef system just a couple miles off of its coast. With more than 400 islands and some of the best diving and snorkeling sites in the world, the Belize Barrier Reef is a thriving marine environment where tropical fish, anemones, dolphins, sea turtles, rays, sharks, and manatees thrive. And earlier this year, the UN upgraded the status of the reef from “endangered” to “healthy” thanks to strong conservation efforts by the Belizean government.
