May is the official start to the summer season in Belize and the perfect time to enjoy a fantastic vacation in this gorgeous country. Whether you’re looking for a getaway destination to celebrate Mother’s Day, want to enjoy an unforgettable honeymoon, or are searching for a great place for your next family vacation, Belize has it all.
And no place in Belize is better than the fabulous Placencia Peninsula, home to the most beautiful beaches in a country with hundreds of miles of Caribbean coastline. Called the “Island You Can Walk To,” Placencia is a narrow isthmus of land on the southern coast of Belize.
Here are some of the amazing things you can enjoy in Placencia, Belize in May:
In the mood for a swim? Or just want to enjoy a relaxing stroll along the beach? Well, the month of May is the perfect time to visit Placencia. This area of the country sees water temperatures of 81° F (28° C) and air temperatures of around 82° F (28° C) during the day and pleasantly cool evenings.
Whale sharks are the largest non-mammalian creatures in the world’s oceans, approximately double the size and weight of a semi truck. But they feed exclusively on microscopic plankton and fish spawn, so whale sharks don’t pose any danger to humans.
Whale sharks only visit Belize once a year, and May is the perfect time to see them in the wild. Scuba diving or snorkeling amidst these gentle giants is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Did you know that the Maya have been making chocolate in Belize for thousands of years? It’s true. And few events garner as much excitement as the annual Chocolate Festival in southern Belize.
From May 18-20, 2018, the town of Punta Gorda will be home to all things chocolate, including interesting items like chocolate beer and chocolate soap. Every Belizean chocolate producer will be on hand to tempt your taste buds with their finest creations. This three-day festival also features live music, street fairs, cultural displays, and games for the whole family to enjoy.
On your Belize vacation, why not stay at the lovely Chabil Mar resort? In the Mayan language, Chabil Mar means “Beautiful Sea,” the perfect description for this boutique beachfront resort located just a short stroll from Placencia Village. Chabil Mar has two infinity pools, a tropical garden dripping with flowers, and is immersed in the natural beauty of Belize.
