With long days filled with golden sunshine and plenty to do and see, it’s no surprise that Belize is becoming a popular destination to visit in February. Capitalizing on that trend, Belize has been garnering strong praise from leading publications recently, including Lonely Planet, MSN, and Forbes all of which recommended Belize as a top tourist destination in 2022. Combined with recent announcements from Alaska Airlines and SouthWest offering special rates from several US Cities to Belize, it is now easier and more affordable than ever to enjoy a vacation in Belize in 2022.
Events and Festivals in February
It may not be an official holiday on the calendar, but Valentine’s Day (February 14) is widely celebrated throughout the country.
Definitely don’t miss the San Pedro Carnival. The colorful island town goes to great lengths every year to top itself with concerts, dancing, parades, and food festivals during the week before Lent.
The titleholder of the world’s smallest main street, Placencia uses its iconic four-foot-wide “main street” to host the Placencia Sidewalk Arts and Music Festival every year. Artists from around the country will be on hand to demonstrate their wares, including paintings, handmade furniture, sculpture, clothing, and photographs. Enjoy a smorgasbord of food while dancing to live music.
(Note: Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the San Pedro Carnival and the Placencia Sidewalk Arts and Music Festival might not be held this year.)
