Visit Belize in 2018

Belize is a small country, a virtual hybrid of Central American and Caribbean cultures. Located just south of Mexico, Belize was once an isolated country difficult to get to. But now thanks to non-stop flights from all the biggest airlines in North America, more and more people are getting the chance to visit this nation dubbed “Mother Nature’s Best-kept Secret.”

Belize is a country where nature is king. You won’t find any high-rise shopping malls or traffic jams here. Instead, you’ll find a natural wonderland filled with lush rainforests, verdant jungles, and gorgeous sugar sand white beaches. All this plus more ancient Maya cities than anywhere else on the planet, and it’s easy to see why Belize is such a popular travel destination.

For Canadians, Air Canada and WestJet now fly non-stop to Belize from Toronto and Calgary. Americans have even more options, as Southwest, American, United, and Delta all offer non-stop flights from a dozen major cities across the country, including Atlanta, Denver, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Dallas. In just 2-5 hours, you can be enjoying the fabulous sunny skies and warm temperatures that bless Belize all year-round.

Exciting festivals and events to see include the Placencia Sidewalk Arts Festival, a celebration of local artisans and artists, the renowned Placencia Lobsterfest to herald the opening of the lobster season, and the delicious Chocolate Festival that uses locally grown cacao beans to create a wide variety of sumptuous treats.

Activities to enjoy in Belize in 2018 include snorkeling or scuba diving with whale sharks, the largest fish in the ocean, bird watching (over 500 species have been recorded in the country), hiking through a national park, or visiting ancient Maya cities such as Lubantuum, Xunantunich, and Nim Li Punit.

If that’s not enough, you can also enjoy world-class sailing, fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving along the Belize Barrier Reef, second only in size to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Belize has hundreds of tropical islands and atolls, and few experiences can compare to watching the sun rise over the waters of the Caribbean.

No matter when you decide to visit, you’ll be sure to have a great time. All you’ll need is a T-shirt, shorts, sandals. Oh, and your passport, of course!

Mark your calendar now and make 2018 the year you visit Belize! Stay at the luxurious Chabil Mar resort in beautiful southern Belize. Chabil Mar offers travelers Belize jungle and sea packages to enjoy the best of both worlds.
