Even though spring has just sprung, it’s never too late to begin planning your summer getaway. The season in Belize is filled with sundrenched beaches, lush rainforests, and an abundance of adventure. There are plenty of places where you can find the latter, making an ordinary vacation a truly civilized experience. Though Belize feels like summer all year round, June and July hold the epitome of a summer vibe. What makes Belize the best tropical destination for your summer vacation if you’re already planning one?
Summer In Belize Is Less Crowded
Due to the popularity of snowbirds, Belize’s busiest season is between December and early March. Summer is now yours to take. The 400-plus cayes, thousands of acres of rainforest, and popular attractions of Belize are all at your disposal – without the crowds. Imagine taking a selfie at Xunantunich without getting in the way of anyone’s shot. The wildly famous Shark Ray Alley is a great place to spend one-on-one time with the docile nurse sharks. Experiencing each experience in a whole new way allows you to have an intimate vacation that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to enjoy.
Summer Weather As It Should Be
Due to its tropical location, Belize is able to maintain a summery vibe all year round. There is a perfect balance in weather in Belize Real Estate during summertime. All season long, the highs are in the 80s and 90s, making for ideal pool-day scenarios. In the jungles, temperatures can drop even lower at night, to the 70s. The tropical sun may be accompanied by an occasional scattered shower, though it’s welcomed as a respite.
In The Summer, The Days Are Longer
Any lingering winter blues are officially put to rest with summertime. In addition, Belize still enjoys the benefits of longer days even without Daylight Saving Time. As opposed to December, when the sun dips beneath the horizon as early as 5:30 p.m. During peak summer, the orange-hued sun dips beneath the horizon as late as 7 p.m. As a result, you’ll have more time to explore, leading to a more enjoyable itinerary. It ends up being a longer trip so that you can experience as much of Belize as possible.
Accessible To All
Another factor that makes Belize stand out from other summer destinations is its proximity to most U.S. airports. A trip to the Maldives or Costa Rica won’t be necessary to enjoy crystalline blue waters or explore dew-speckled jungles. It’s all here, jam-packed in a tiny Central American country four hours from the furthest U.S. airport. Many U.S. Cities don’t even require a stopover, so you may take off early in the morning and get to Caye Caulker in the evening to have a Lizard Juice.
Festivals Of Summer Food
Its food festivals are unsurpassed in the region and are a major draw for travellers. Lobster festivals dominate late June and early July. Belize’s beaches are known for their delicious seafood, but this food festival also highlights the culinary skills of local chefs who create scrumptious dishes. It is possible to attend a Lobster Fest in sunny San Pedro, ex-pat haven Placencia, or laid-back Caye Caulker. There is bound to be a slew of savoury tastes to tempt your palate, no matter which you choose.
Summer Migration Of Whale Sharks
Swimming alongside gentle sea giants is a permanent fixture on your bucket list. In Belize, whale sharks appear for feeding from April to June. It is a wonder to see these massive sea creatures up close, yet they pose no immediate danger to humans. Belize’s Gladden Spit Marine Reserve is known to host whale sharks near the full moon in June. Be sure to plan whale shark spotting around the dates near the full moon when planning your summer itinerary. Book multiple diving or snorkelling trips during these months to increase your chances of spotting the spotted giant once in a lifetime.
The Birding In Belize Is Incredible
There has long been a perception that Belize is a bird sanctuary. There are more than 350 bird species resident and migratory at Chaa Creek’s nature reserve alone. The summer months are a great time to see visiting birds from South America. It is still possible to observe birds almost anywhere in Belize and at any time. A Keel-Billed Toucan’s familiar croak can be heard during your Chaa Creek Birding experience. It’s possible that you’ll recognize a Lesson’s Motmot’s gentle “hoot-hoot”. While on your morning walk, keep your binoculars ready and the Merlin app nearby for quick identification.
Travel Offers For The Summer
One of the most attractive aspects of travelling to Belize in the summer is the number of travel offers you’ll find. The summer months are the country’s low season, so hotels offer special rates during this time. Get one free night when you book a three-night stay at Chaa Creek between now and July 31. The award-winning resort’s numerous on-site amenities can then be enjoyed to the fullest. You can learn more about Belize at the Natural History Center and visit the Butterfly Farm to see the vibrant Blue Morpho Butterflies. Take a dip in the eco-friendly infinity pool while sipping on a tropical cocktail to truly feel like summer.
