Plan Your Winter Escape to Sunny Belize in 5 Easy Steps

Plan Your Winter Escape to Sunny Belize in 5 Easy Steps

If you close your eyes and imagine a beautiful, tropical getaway destination, Belize is probably what you’re picturing. A small country with both offshore islands and a pristine mainland composed of mountains, rainforest, jungle, and beaches, Belize is often called “Mother Nature’s Best-kept Secret.”

Here are 5 easy steps how you can plan your winter escape to sunny Belize in 2018.

Focus on a Closer Destination

There’s plenty to enjoy in destinations such as Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Jamaica, but Belize is far closer to North America. In five hours or less, anyone in the United States or Canada can fly to Belize, entering a natural wonderland where plants and animals far outnumber cars and people.

And if that weren’t enough, Belize was the epicenter of the mighty ancient Maya civilization. From coast to coast, Belize has more temples, pyramids, palaces, ball courts, and sacred Maya caves than anywhere else on Earth, giving visitors a chance to live out their fondest Indiana Jones fantasies.

Find a Plane Ticket at a Great Price

Just a decade ago, it was quite difficult to get to Belize. But now, all of the largest airlines in North America offer non-stop flights to Belize from major cities across the United States and Canada.

Whether you live in or near Miami, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Denver, Toronto, Calgary, Houston, or many other cities, you can easily find a non-stop flight to Belize. And because the travel market is highly competitive, you can get some great deals on airfare.

Avoid the Crowded Tourist Spots

Belize is now a popular vacation hotspot, so destinations like Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker are usually quite crowded. These islands have plenty to offer, but why not discover something a little more off the beaten track?

Belize has hundreds of islands and beautiful, natural areas teeming with gorgeous plants, exotic wildlife, and tropical birds. In Belize, you’ll never run out of amazing places to visit, including Half Moon Caye (a protected environmental area), eco-lodges in the jungle, beautiful waterfalls and national parks located deep in the rainforest, and Glover’s Reef at the farthest edge of the Belize Barrier Reef.

Try a New Activity

Instead of solely lounging on the beach or other activities that you’ve done before, why not use your time in Belize to try something new?

There are tons of exciting things to see, do, and try in Belize, including stand-up paddleboarding, swimming at the base of a waterfall, visiting a traditional Maya village deep in the jungle, and overnight camping on an uninhabited island with 360-degree views of the Caribbean.

Choose the Right Adventure Travel Company

Island Expeditions was founded more than 30 years ago by adventure travelers who wanted to share the beauty and wonder of Belize with visitors from around the world. After exploring (nearly!) every island, inlet, lagoon, river, and village in Belize, Island Expeditions is one of the only companies in Belize with deep local knowledge of all of the most beautiful, exciting, and unusual places to visit, especially those far off the normal tourist track.

For your 2018 vacation to Belize, choose Island Expeditions.
