While friends and relatives slather on lotions to fight winter weather, how would you like to find yourself slathering on sunscreen as you enjoy all sorts of fanciful Belize adventures in November and December? Sound like a dream? It’s doesn’t have to be if you consider this your invitation to escape winter and shake off those blues by visiting Belize--a land where the sun doesn't disappear until night falls and stars come out.
Belize is a wonderland of blue sky, ocean and laid-back tropical ambiance, and though it’s high season in November and December, you may be surprised to learn that this is one of the most budget-friendly nations in the Caribbean. No need to sell your holiday Nutcracker collection to afford as much time on the beach as you wish, and the reasons to come for Thanksgiving, Christmas and/or New Year’s Eve are endless.
For starters, getting here is easy. So many airlines fly non-stop to Belize each day, you’ll have plenty of choices, even during high season. Since WestJet began offering daily, non-stop North America-to-Belize flights in October, tickets have become more affordable, even on SouthWest, United, American and Delta. Will the trend continue? Tourism experts feel confident that it will.
Once you land in Belize, expect plenty of holiday surprises. Resorts love year-end celebrations because it gives them the chance to show off their hospitality to travelers who love being pampered and treated like royalty. For example, Cahal Pech Village Resort plans all-year-long for this time of year, so whether you long for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all of the trimmings, a nostalgic Christmas experience or an unforgettable New Year’s Eve in the rainforest, find it all at Cahal Pech where rooms are still available for year-end travelers. You can even put your Christmas cards into your luggage and address them while lounging in the sun while sipping a Mojito poolside.
Of course, you may want anything but tradition if you decided to make Belize your year-end holiday. Travel to the Belize Barrier Reef or explore a rainforest on Thanksgiving Day instead of--or in addition to--eating turkey. Learn about the Mayan culture by traveling to myriad historic ruins—and you can share with fellow travelers the fact that turkey is indigenous to Belize and was eaten by Mayans centuries ago.
When you visit Belize in November and December, you will understand what it means to have it all. Go hiking into a lush jungle on Christmas Eve or book a snorkel, scuba or fishing experience. Feel free to sing holiday carols from the deck of the boat. Your fellow travelers are likely to join you!
Because Cahal Pech is known for customized excursions, as a guest, you can arrange land and sea experiences that make extraordinary holiday memories and if you don’t return from Belize after packing on holiday pounds as you do back home, it’s only because you stayed too active during your stay.
Belize has never been a hotter destination—literally and figuratively! As the recipient of international tourism awards, the nation has shown how much it spoils visitors, and since the Belize weather is idyllic year-round, there’s no “bad season” to come. Find out how ready Cahal Pech’s friendly staff--and the entire nation of Belize--is for your holiday visit to add the perfect finish to your memorable year.
