Belize commands a picturesque location along the Caribbean Sea. As a small country, Belize is approximately the size of Massachusetts and offers a unique setting for families interested in a tropical vacation with lots of fun in the sun. From its reef-filled waters to the lush interior jungles, there’s plenty to explore. Belize beach rentals offer a cozy home base for your action-packed vacation to this subtropical escape.
Things To Do
Belize is an adventure-seeker’s paradise. Hol Chan Marine Reserve beckons snorkelers and scuba divers with mangroves, sea grass beds, reefs, and the stunning Shark Ray Alley. The Blue Hole is one of six UNESCO World Heritage Sites around Belize’s barrier reef. Coral walls, ancient stalactites, underwater tunnels, and eerie caverns await certified divers who descend to its depths.
The Belize Zoo feels like a lush wild jungle, home to jaguars, scarlet macaws, black howler monkeys, boa constrictors, and tree frogs. The zoo is home to more than 170 animals and over 45 species, all native to Belize. If your inner Indiana Jones is clamoring to get out, Belize also has several visitor-friendly archaeological sites. One of the largest and most impressive is Lamanai, or submerged crocodile, a Mayan temple featuring several carvings that readily explain its name.
Walking and biking are the preferred methods of travel for many visitors to Belize. If you prefer a more passive form of transportation, golf carts can get you from most Belize beach rentals to the local highlights, and offer an affordable alternative to a car rental. In Belize City, you may want to enlist a taxi for getting around.
Belize enjoys a warm subtropical climate with high humidity. Year-round highs are in the low to mid-80s and lows fall between 70 and 79 degrees F. The dry season lasts from January to April, and the rainy season extends from mid-May to November. Hurricane season is from June to November, so visitors should keep an eye on developing storm patterns during this time.
Belize celebrates many festivals, erupting into boisterous parties in bold Caribbean style. Fiesta de Carnaval takes place the week before Lent. Easter is a week-long festival as well with many nationwide closures in honor of the holiday. You can catch lobster festivals taking place throughout Belize in June and July. Early August brings the San Pedro International Costa Maya Festival, and September 21 is Belize Independence Day. With events occurring year round and more than enough natural wonders to keep visitors busy, Belize is a popular tourist destination any time of the year.
The cuisine of Belize is largely rice-based, but there are several delicacies you can enjoy alongside that heaping serving of rice and beans. Seafood is particularly abundant in this coastal destination, with specialties that include conch, shrimp, grouper, lobster, and red snapper. Ceviche is a particular favorite featuring conch tossed with lime juice, tomato, onion, and capsicum. Other staples date back to Mayan times, such as maize tortillas, and visitors will discover the people of Belize have a strong preference for hot sauce. The Caribbean is also famous for its rums, but you can also enjoy a distinctive beverage in the form of Belize’s cashew wine. The thick wine is typically served with soda or sparkling water.
Check out gorgeous Belize beach rentals for welcoming accommodations with Caribbean flair. Whether you’re returning from a journey to the depths of the Blue Hole or a trek into ancient Mayan ruins, the right vacation home will give you a soothing spot to kick back and relax between exciting excursions.
