Have you declared 2021 the year you shake things up and end routines? Launch your mission by trading that December Florida or Arizona trip for Belize—and for all of the right reasons.
North America is awash in moody holiday shoppers by the time December 1st rolls around each year, which is why it’s not surprising to see more and more tourists grab their resort togs and flip flops and flee south.
While Florida and Arizona are traditional destinations for many, there’s been a sea change in December travel: These days, Belize is the idyllic solution to winter blues. It’s gorgeous, nearby, affordable and very therapeutic for those desperate for a respite once Thanksgiving leftovers are nothing but memories.
For tourists craving an extreme party scene, Ambergris Caye beckons. For those eager to have a blast, go adventuring, relax and avoid crowds, there is no better destination than Placencia, the destination that is fast becoming the trendiest place in Belize.
This 16-mile-long finger of land has the unique distinction of offering something for everyone, regardless of their vacation style, which is why you’ll hear it mentioned regularly when travel writers survey solo travelers, families, couples, honeymooners and groups eager to spend quality time far from obligations back home.
