Belize First-Timers Discover a Summer in Paradise
If you’ve been searching for a summer destination that offers all of the trappings of a Caribbean adventure with none of the costs associated with vacation spots located along the U.S. Gulf Coast, Belize will deliver on the promise of an exotic experience where everyone speaks English and vacations are downright affordable. And while it’s only a couple of hours away by plane, it’s a million miles from the ordinary.
First time Belize visitors are astonished to find how much they’ve been missing (and how much they’ve been spending for domestic vacations!) by not venturing forth into a magical place that’s got more to offer couples, families and single travelers than pricier destinations in Central America.
The weather between mid-May and November ranges from about 86-degrees F by day and 79-degrees F by night and things cool off more when rain showers come and go faster than the clouds that brought them. Here’s the best part of Belize in summer: the variety of things to do is so expansive, your itinerary will stay packed from morning to night.
Eat lobsters in June during the nation’s lobster festivals. Seek cultural experiences you won’t find elsewhere in the hemisphere. Visit in August for the International Costa Maya Festival celebrating Maya heritage and culture during a week filled with music, parades and dancing. Spot birds you’ve seen only in books within the confines of rainforests dotting the nation. Over 600 rare birds call Belize home. See how many you can spot!
If you think that birding is for the birds and you’ve heard rumors that Belize is the place to go for water sports, you’ve got that right. Belize’s Barrier Reef provides a dramatic geological backdrop that can’t be surpassed. Visitors encounter an endless number of sea creatures when they sail, scuba dive, snorkel, kayak, swim and explore the waters surrounding the world’s second largest barrier reef.
Admit it: You’re intrigued. And curious. But you’re not sure you’re up for navigating a foreign country. Here’s the best news of all: You don’t have to.
Barefoot Rentals and Services is the nation’s #1 resource for first timers who want to see it all and not waste a minute of time trying to figure out where to go and what to do. Whether you need recommendations for lodgings based on your budget and interests, transfers to and from the Belize airport or you’d love an expedited vacation that provides guides, tours, and transportation, Barefoot has you covered.
In the interest of transparency, we must add this note: Once you’ve been spoiled by Barefoot and Belize, no other Caribbean destination is going to satisfy your longing for a perfect summer vacation and no other in-country service is going make you feel like royalty from the day you arrive until the day you depart. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!
