1 – The Weather
Belize isn’t just a great place to escape the winter blues of North America, it’s also a lovely opportunity to enjoy some of the best weather anywhere on the planet with highs around 80F (27C) and lots of sunshine during the Christmas period.
2 – Festive
You’ll hear carols being played in all the cafes and bars, drummers on the street tapping out Christmas tunes, and both locals and visitors alike get caught up in a groundswell of old-fashioned Christmas cheer that’s rarely seen anymore in the United States and Canada.
3 – Surf and Turf
Not just a delicious menu item that you can enjoy at most restaurants in Belize, surf and turf refers to the wonderful vacation packages that top resorts like Chabil Mar offer their guests. By combining a trip to the top sites on the mainland (the “turf”) with scuba diving, snorkeling, and splashing in the Caribbean on the sun-drenched islands of the Belize Barrier Reef (the “surf”), visitors can enjoy a truly varied Christmas vacation.
4 – The Maya
Many visitors come to Belize solely for the opportunity to climb the ancient pyramids and ghostly ruins left behind by the Ancient Maya, touring top spots like Cahal Pech, Xunantunich, and Caracol.
5 – The Language
When you want to relax and unwind on your holiday vacation, there’s simply no destination quite like Belize. As the region’s only country where English is the official language, you’ll never struggle to read signs and menus, talk to the locals, or enjoy the music.
6 – The Locals
Although the country is the size of Massachusetts, a unique blend of just 350,000 locals call Belize home, a mix of Garifuna, Creole, British, German Mennonite, Maya, and Mexican peoples who live together in true harmony. Belizeans are world famous for their easygoing nature, abundant smiles, and natural generosity.
7 – Affordable Airfare
Thanks to new routes announced like Westjet’s non-stop service from Calgary, airlines now connect Belize City to most of the major cities in North America. All these competitors entering this hot market mean that the consumer – you – benefit from reduced airfares and great flights.
Chabil Mar, the multiple award-winning luxury resort on the Placencia Peninsula, is where wonderful winter holiday vacations begin. Located right on the beach just a few minutes’ walk from Placencia Village, the resort features a lush tropical garden, gorgeous infinity pool, a full-service spa, a gourmet restaurant, and beautifully-appointed villas to make the most of your stay in Belize.
With so many delightful reasons to visit Belize during the winter holidays, you’ll definitely enjoy a wonderful end to the old year and beginning of the new.
