There are hundreds of reasons to visit Belize in the spring, but we’ve narrowed the list down to the top five. Check these out and start packing for the best spring vacation of your life.
1. The Weather Couldn’t Be Better
Spring is one of the best seasons in Belize. It’s the beginning of the dry season, which means you can enjoy sunny days without rain or high humidity. Temperatures range from 75 to 85 with gentle, steady breezes.
2. Enjoy the Beaches of Placencia
In a country filled with spectacular scenery, most Belizeans agree that the beaches of Placencia are the best in Belize. The gorgeous, pristine waterfront is the perfect place to enjoy a true Caribbean vacation. Swim, sun and snorkel at the breathtaking Belize Barrier Reef or visit charming Placencia Village.
3. Easter Is a Huge Holiday Here
Easter is one of the most important holidays in Belize. Most Belizeans are practicing Catholics, and they take the holiday seriously. Holy Friday is a national holiday, and many businesses close that day. At the same time, Easter is filled with nonstop events that you can enjoy if you’re a visitor.
Go to Benque Viejo del Carmen to see the annual reenactment of the Easter story. Cheer on the riders at the 140-mile Holy Saturday Cross Country Cycle Race. Check out the Caye Caulker Regatta and the two-day San Ignacio Easter Fair. The holiday ends on Easter Monday with horse races and a parade. That’s just a sampling of the many Easter events taking place here.
4. There Is a Lot to Do
You will never run out of things to do, and the glorious spring weather makes outdoor activities even more enjoyable. Test your nerves and your strength with a challenging cave tour. Visit an authentic Maya or Garifuna village. Spend the day snorkeling on an offshore island where you’ll swim with rays, sea turtles, manatees and nurse sharks.
Relax and enjoy total indulgence in your private beachfront villa at Chabil Mar. Spend the day sunning in a hammock on your veranda or in your rented kayak. Visit a wildlife sanctuary or forest preserve where you can spot toucans, macaws, ocelots, pumas, iguanas, silver foxes and deer. The list is endless.
5. Eat, Drink and Party
One of the best things about Belize is its warm, friendly people. The mix of Belize’s population gives color and flavor to the food, music, and culture here.
