No Matter Where You Stay, Make it a November to Remember in Belize
Visit Belize in November and Stay at Any of These 15 Best Resorts
If the November calendar page on your ‘fridge is packed with obligations, take a break and head for Belize. Thanks to Southwest Airlines instituting Belize routes on October 15th, you’ll have your pick of flights—and because Southwest has upped the competition ante, prices are dropping faster than temperatures in your area. Placencia and Ambergris Caye just won international destination awards. You’ll understand why when you come down for a November to remember.
Belizeans take holidays seriously! You’ll be sorry if you miss the annual Battle of the Drums, a country-wide party that attracts visitors from around the globe. On Saturday, November 14th, performers compete in five categories and if you love music, you’ll want to see who wins. Get yourself in the mood for your visit by checking out
If drums aren’t your thing, Garifuna Settlement Day—on November 19th—may be. This historic holiday is packed with activities including a historic reenactment of Garifuna people arriving by boat in 1832 at Stann Creek. Eat, drink and make merry throughout southern Belize on this day.
Stick around another week thanks to low seasonal rates and November-only specials and you can add San Pedro Township Day to your social calendar. Enjoy parades, music, boat races, fishing tournaments and fun on November 27th. But, you need a place to stay that’s close to the aforementioned action!
What do the following resorts have in common? They’re all located in close proximity to the events mentioned above, so whether you want to attend one or all of them, your lodging host is happy to arrange transport so you don’t miss a minute of the excitement.
