Baron Bliss Day (March 9th) honors one of Belize’s greatest benefactors. Baron Bliss was an English aristocrat whose yacht spent two days in the harbor at Belize. Bliss never left his boat, but local Belizeans visited him while he was in the harbor.
Bliss was completely charmed by Belize. When he died in 1926, he left a generous trust fund to set up schools, roads, parks, and public services in Belize. He also asked to be buried here. Every year, Belizeans honor his memory with a parade and a boat race.
Maya Day honors the proud heritage of one of Belize’s largest ethnic groups. The Maya of Belize have built a thriving culture that preserves their traditions. You can learn about their culture and history during Maya Day at the Tumul K’in Center of Learning in the Toledo District, Southern Belize.
Enjoy traditional dances, music, games, and activities for children. Sample delicious, homemade Maya food and world-famous Maya chocolate.

Daytime temperatures are in the 80s with low humidity and almost no rainy days. At night, the temperatures drop to the 70s. Sea breezes keep everything cool and fresh. The Caribbean Sea is warm enough to swim in all year round.
