Escape the Winter Up North…and Head for Belize! Posted on Thursday, October 12th, 2017
The holiday season is a time for family, feasting, and plenty of good cheer, but it’s never any fun having to deal with cold, ice, and snow. That’s why the perfect place to enjoy an unforgettable vacation this holiday season is Belize, a small Caribbean country just 2-5 hours’ flying time from the United States.
Located just south of Mexico’s famous Yucatan Peninsula, Belize enjoys warm sunshine and beautiful weather all year-long. It may be winter on the calendar, but in Belize, the holiday season is a time for enjoying the great outdoors, walking along a beach, taking a swim, or perhaps catching a glimpse of one of the more than 500 bird species that have been spotted in the country. Even if the nights get a bit “chilly” (75 degrees Fahrenheit), one thing is for certain – you’ll never, ever see it snow in Belize.
But Belize is more than just great weather and sunny skies. It’s a natural wonderland where plants and animals far outnumber people. The mainland is a cornucopia of lush rainforests, verdant jungle, misty mountaintops, and stunning waterfalls inhabited by a rich diversity of plant and animal life. Belize is home to parrots, macaws, and toucans as well as monkeys, enormous harpy eagles, and five different big cat species, including the jaguar, once revered by the ancient Maya as a sacred animal of the gods.
The ancient Maya called Belize home, the heartland of their vast civilization that once covered all of Central America. Today, Belize is home to more ancient Maya sites than anywhere else, including the colossal cities of Caracol and Xunantunich and spectacular caves like Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) that were used by the ancient priests to perform human sacrifices.
Offshore, Belize has more than 100 islands, the perfect place to enjoy world-class diving, snorkeling, sailing, and fishing.
One of the best places to experience Belize at its best is the Placencia Peninsula. Located on the southeastern coast of the country, the Placencia Peninsula is 16 miles of golden sand beaches, beautiful views of the Caribbean, and close access to all the top attractions in the country, including the offshore reef and wildlife sanctuaries on the mainland.Chabil Mar is a multiple award-winning resort featuring luxurious villas
