You Can Afford a Belize Vacation, Especially if You Come in May!
Is a Belize Vacation Affordable?
When was the last time you went on a relaxing foreign holiday? If you’re like most Americans asked the question during a recent Bankrate survey, only 52-percent of Americans are planning summer vacations in 2021 while a whopping 48-percent are still on the fence.
Researchers asked the obvious question and found a simple answer: “We can’t afford it.”
In fact, 74-percent of Gen Xers surveyed (ages 40 to 54) say they can’t afford a summer vacation. If Americans in this age bracket can’t afford to go away, they’ve obviously never heard about Belize, one of the closest, most affordable places to get a full-blown exotic getaway where dollars stretch so far, they almost scream.
That month of May is an ideal time to visit since it is shoulder season when rates are as low as crowds and every attraction awaiting visitors boasts remarkable discounts.
Why May? No brainer. Winter visitors have disappeared. Summer heat has yet to arrive. Visitors bring moms here to celebrate Mother’s Day, some come just for the annual Chocolate Festival that draws fanatics eager to spend three days indulging their palates and for the curious, the annual Cashew Festival showcases so many Belizean-made products, you’ll wonder why you’ve never heard of cashew wine.
Can’t afford to see Belize in May? Au contraire. Two weeks in Europe will set you back at least $3960 USD say statisticians at MoneyWeHave.com, but two weeks in Belize cost travel blogger Lauren Juliff $858 for her 13-day stay that included accommodations, transportation, food and extras.
Even if you double Lauren’s expenditures to upgrade your vacation, you’ll still spend less than half as much for a tropical experience that offers every bit as much fun, sun and relaxation–minus the jet lag, language barriers and worries many vacationers have about safety concerns in Europe.

Put your trip in our hands and you don’t have to worry about getting where you’re going or getting bad advice from tour companies more interested in making a buck than they are about you having the time of your life in this affordable nation.
Whether you’re an adventurer and want to cruise caves in tubes, swim with whale sharks or zip line–or your only desire is visiting Maya ruins, snorkeling the barrier reef or learning all there is to know about the nation’s cultural heritage–the right guide can make the difference between a great trip and one that leaves you saying, “Did I just spend $4,000 to see Europe when Belize is so affordable, fun and close to home?”
