Things to Do and See in Belize in April
With refreshing breezes and plenty of sunshine, Belize in April is a great time to explore nature and enjoy some of the many wonderful attractions in the country.
Belize is a deeply religious country, and the biggest faith-based holiday in the country is Easter, a time for families to come together, share food, and enjoy the great outdoors. This year, Easter Sunday will be celebrated on April 1, 2018.
Easter in Belize always includes the preceding Friday (Good Friday) as well as the following day (Easter Monday), making it the only four-day holiday on the yearly calendar.
The Holy Saturday Cross Country Cycling Classic
In 2018, the Cycling Classic will take place on March 31, 2018, one of the country’s premier bicycle races. The oldest sporting event in the country’s history, the Cycling Classic has been pitting elite racers from Belize and around the world as they race from Belize City to San Ignacio/Santa Elena and then back again since 1928.
Dive With Whale Sharks
The largest fish species in the world’s oceans, whale sharks spend the year circumnavigating the globe in search of juvenile fish and spawn on which to feed. Every year in April, these magnificent creatures make their ways to the waters offshore of Belize, rising with the full moon to feed. Interacting with these gentle giants is a truly special diving experience.
Far from the tourist throngs in places like Ambergris Caye, the golden sands of the Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize are home to the country’s burgeoning ecotourism industry. Whether you want to gaze at the sun dappling off of the waves from a beachside bar or head offshore to enjoy snorkeling, kayaking, diving, and sailing, Placencia has successfully managed to preserve its idyllic “barefoot” charm.
Placencia is also conveniently close to some of the top mainland attractions, including bird watching, hiking through the Cockscomb Basin Nature Reserve, and exploring ancient Maya ruins like Xunantunich and Cahal Pech.
A multiple award-winning resort located just minutes from Placencia Village, Chabil Mar is an oasis of tranquility and luxury that welcomes guests with well-appointed villas, a lush tropical garden, and a gourmet restaurant where diners can enjoy their meals al fresco on a private pier.
Chabil Mar is the perfect resort to celebrate Easter, cheer on the racers of the Cycling Classic, and head out to nearby Gladden Spit to go diving with whale sharks.
