Is winter getting you down? Got you thinking about a warm, sunny, destination to escape those frigid temps? Are you searching for the ideal family vacation destination? One that can keep the whole family engaged and excited, regardless of age? Then Belize might just be the destination you’ve been searching for!
Here are 5 reasons why families – and anyone else looking for a warm and sunny escape – should consider Belize as their next vacation destination.
1. The Year-Round Tropical Warmth
Not too hot. Not too cold. Yep, that sums up the weather in Belize, where the average year round temperature is a balmy 84 degrees. Whether you need to escape in January or July, you are sure to find the weather pretty darned pleasant in Belize. Even during the cooler months of December and January, the weather is still a warm 80 degrees!
If you are not a fan of rainy weather, then you should know that the rainy season is mid-May to November. But hey, a little rain shouldn’t damper these adventures! And some decent travel deals may be yours if you travel to Belize in May or September.
2. The Mayan Ruins
Belize is loaded with Mayan ruins. Just imagine the thrill on your kids’ faces as they come face to face with an ancient Mayan ruin that’s more than 1,000 years old. When they climb to the top of a ceremonial temple and gaze across the expansive jungle, as if they were Mayan royalty. Or when they stroll across long-ago abandoned Mayan plazas and ball courts as the Mayan people did so very long ago.
Nothing makes history more intriguing, more interesting, and just plain fun, than walking along the very same paths as did an ancient civilization long lost to the modern world. Totally amazing. Truly inspirational!
3. The Jungle Adventures

From hikes or horseback rides along winding jungle trails, to caving adventures past 1,000 year old Mayan ruins, to ziplining above a rainforest canopy, Belize is an outdoor adventurer’s playground.
