Thanksgiving in Belize

When Thanksgiving arrives in the U.S., everyone gives thanks for pilgrims arriving safely at Massachusetts’ Plymouth Rock centuries ago. Typically, lavish meals replicate the first one shared by settlers and Native Americans. Over time, Thanksgiving traditions have circled the globe, so if you visit Belize at the end of November, you’ll enjoy fellowship and delicious Thanksgiving meals at these 10 popular destinations.

Chabil Mar in Placencia

With the green season ending, you could duck a few raindrops during your Thanksgiving stay at Chabil Mar Villas, but that won’t dampen your spirits. Give thanks for the lush scenery, your luxury room and hosts eager to make your Thanksgiving meal the most memorable you’ve ever tasted.

Yok Ha Belize Island Resort in Water Foot Caye

2. Water Foot Caye
Change up your typical Thanksgiving holiday by spending it on a three acre island that’s big on tradition when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner. Stay at Yok Ha Belize Island Resort and take your holiday meal on a deck overlooking at the awe-inspiring Belize Barrier Reef or sample turkey island-style in Yok Ha’s onsite eatery.

Cahal Pech Village Resort in San Ignacio

Make a reservation if you hope to dine at Cahal Pech Village Resort because the Ixtabai Restaurant is small, intimate and U.S. ex-pats like to celebrate Thanksgiving here. From your vantage point overlooking the Belize River Valley, you’ll be reminded of the paradise pilgrims found when they first set foot on New World soil.

Victoria House in Ambergris Caye
