Best Spring Break Value Travel Destinations: Belize

Posted on Monday, January 25th, 2016

????????????????????????????????????

There is a lot more to Belize than beautiful beaches, perfect sunny weather, and many exciting attractions. Belize was the home of the ancient Mayan empire, and today the country has dozens of amazing Maya temples and pyramids to explore and climb. With a friendly, laid-back atmosphere and welcoming, English-speaking natives, Belize makes every visitor instantly feel right at home.

Spring breakers can snorkel the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, ride a zipline high up in the canopy of a tropical rainforest, or marvel at jaguars, monkeys, and manatees in their native habitat. More exotic and welcoming than the crowded resorts of Cancun or Playa del Carmen in Mexico, Belize is increasingly becoming the destination of choice for students, families and couples to enjoy their spring break.
