It's easy to see why December is one of the most popular times to visit Belize. Whether you're an adventure traveler, a family looking for a great old-time vacation, or looking for an exotic romantic getaway, December is the perfect time to pack your bags and head to Belize.
Here are 7 reasons why you should definitely travel to Belize in December:
1 - Belize Christmas Traditions
Between the strong religious faith of a majority of Belizeans and the exuberant old-fashioned cheer on display everywhere you go, Christmas in Belize is truly the way to celebrate this special holiday.
2 - Easy to Get To
With top air carriers like Southwest, Delta, American, United, and WestJet offering non-stop flights to Belize from major cities in Canada and the United States, it's now easier and more affordable than ever to get to Belize.
3 - Belize Weather in December
There's never any chance of snow or cold, wintry winds in December in Belize. In December, the sun is always shining, the weather is balmy and inviting, and the temperature is perfect for hiking, swimming, or simply relaxing on the beach.
4 - Cahal Pech Village Resort
Located in the eco-tourism capital of San Ignacio Town, Cahal Pech Village Resort is a great place to enjoy a wonderful Christmas vacation. The resort has its own bar, gourmet restaurant, and three swimming pools. With elegantly-appointed accommodations in the form of thatched roof cabanas in a lovely natural setting, Cahal Pech Village is close to all of the top attractions in Belize, including the Maya ruins of Cahal Pech and the ceremonial cave of Actun Tunichil Muknal.
5 - The Ancient Maya Civilization
For thousands of years, the mighty ancient Maya empire dominated Central America and the area now known as Belize was its heartland. After the Maya civilization collapsed 500 years ago, their soaring temples and huge pyramids were abandoned to be reclaimed by the jungle. Today, visitors can explore these long-lost ruins at sites like Cahal Pech, Caracol, and Xunantunich or descend into sacred caves like Barton Creek Cave that Maya priests used to conduct human sacrifices.
6 - Belize Surf and Turf Vacations
After exploring the best of mainland Belize, travelers can head to the beach and the Belize Barrier Reef for plenty of snorkeling, swimming, sailing, and diving fun. Whether you're heading to top sites like Ambergris Caye, the Placencia Peninsula, or Caye Caulker, the Cahal Pech Village Resort's reservations staff can help you craft the perfect surf and turf vacation.
7 - The Belize People
The gorgeous nature and adventure attractions would be enough to tempt any visitor, but it is the warmth and friendliness of the local people in Belize that make a vacation here so special.
With so much to do and see while enjoying lots of sun, spectacular weather, and plenty of old-fashioned holiday cheer, it's no wonder why Belize is a great destination to visit in December.
