Why Visiting Belize in 2021 Should Top Your Must-Do List!
- Is it too early to start planning your dream vacation in Belize? Of course not! Belize is getting more and more popular, so now is the time to start deciding which of the amazing beaches, pristine islands, ancient Maya sites, and spectacular nature reserves you will visit in 2021.
To get you excited, here are six outstanding reasons to circle your calendar and make plans to come visit Belize in 2021.
Come for the Belize Weather
When it’s cold and wintry in North America, the weather is sunny and balmy in Belize. But when the summer is burning hot up north, the temperatures are just right in Belize, as daily highs almost never go above 87 and daily lows never dip below the mid 70s no matter which month in 2017 you decide to come.
Come for the Belize Festivals
Belize has popular festivals all year round but don’t miss the popular ones like the Placencia Sidewalk Festival in February, the Chocolate Festival in Punta Gorda in May and the Placencia Lobster Fest in June.
Come for the Anient Maya Ruins
Belize was once the heartland of the mighty Maya empire that ruled Central America for more than 2,000 years. Explore sites like Xunantunich, home to the largest royal Maya tomb ever discovered, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Tikal (just over the border in Guatemala), and the ATM Cave, a sacred system of underground chambers that was used by Maya priests to conduct human sacrifices.
Come for the Flights
WestJet now offers non-stop flights from Toronto to Belize. Southwest operates non-stop routes from Denver and Houston, and American Airlines will begin a new direct route connecting London (UK) to Belize City via Miami starting in October 2016. Other airlines that offer direct flights to Belize include United, Copa Airlines, and Taca.
Come for the Adventure
Zip line through the jungle, fish from the shores, watch gentle manatees at play, sail the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, swim with whale sharks off of Gladden Spit, swim in the sapphire waters of the Inland Blue Hole, marvel at the glittering stalactites in St. Herman’s Cave, or spend a day as a castaway on the lovely Ranguana Caye, all available as day trip options from Placencia.
Come for the Wildlife
Take a guided boat ride up the pristine Monkey River or hike through the Cockscomb Basin Sanctuary to see Belize’s wildlife at its finest.
Barefoot Rentals and Services
Barefoot Rentals and Services, a locally-owned and operated company, offers rentals of SUVs, and golf carts so that you can visit all of the exciting places in Belize in comfort. Barefoot can also arrange guided tours to the top spots in the country and book your hotel or resort on the Placencia Peninsula.
