Ever wonder why North Americans flock to the Caribbean rim as soon as autumn arrives? It’s not just because the urge to swim grows too strong to be ignored; it’s because humans crave sun, notes Ian Sample, science reporter for “The Guardian.”
“When it gets dark, a region of the brain called the pineal gland starts producing melatonin.” The sun is the only antidote–unless you want to snooze your way through the winter.
If you could care less about biology but desperately want to trade your layers of clothing for a swimsuit, the cost of a winter vacation could be enough to send a chill down your spine that has nothing to do with arctic ice fronts.
Happily, Belize exists and as winter approaches, you’ll find this nation to be a surprisingly affordable destination when compared to other hot spots. Here’s why:
-Winter rates at many vacation destinations can kick in as soon as September arrives, but if you choose a luxury resort like Chabil Mar Villas where high season doesn’t start until December 20th, you can get all the sun you want at a very sunny discount that won’t require you to empty your bank account.
–Belize vacation packages consist of lush accommodations, meals, transfers, incidentals and tours and they still remain affordable even when winter rates take effect. Make Belize your 2020 winter destination and pick your favorite.
-Military personnel get a 15-percent discount to thank them for their service as long as there is availability. If you’re military and you haven’t seen the sun in so long you need a refresher, don’t miss this this opportunity.
Chabil Mar is more than a resort
Chef Daniel’s domain gives him opportunities to put a culinary spin on Belize cuisine that’s served with a tropical flair poolside, beachside, on your villa’s veranda, on the resort peer and at the Kaleidoscope Bar & Lounge.
If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to allocate more down time in your schedule to relaxation and wellness, you couldn’t find a more therapeutic, relaxing experience than by locating a lounge chair or hammock and parking yourself there when you’re not swimming in the resort pool.
If you and your brain are ready to hunker down for the winter, you won’t believe how great you feel just by booking a stay at Chabil Mar Villas and marking the days on your calendar.
Put a sun sticker on the calendar square marking your departure day. No matter how bad the weather gets, knowing that the sun awaits you in Belize is guaranteed to lift your spirits and put a perpetual smile on your face.
