Fall is truly a wonderful time to visit the Central American nation of Belize. With the crowds all having gone home, you can get tremendous deals on accommodations and tours, and major airlines often offer special fares at reduced prices. And you just might run into Simone Biles, the gold-medal winning American gymnast of Belizean heritage who is now headed to the country to relax and unwind after her triumphs at the Olympics.
Below are 6 reasons why fall is a great time to visit Belize:
Escape the Crowds – As school starts back up in North America, the crowds start thinning out in Belize, meaning visitors can have their pick of tours and places to visit.
Belize Adventure Inc. – Our unique local company operates an eco-friendly lodge complete with solar power to provide a unique off-the-grid experience deep in the heart of a pristine patch of the jungle. Located in the foothills of the Maya Mountain and benefiting from cool, refreshing breezes, the jungle lodge is a truly special opportunity to experience the wonders of nature in Belize.
Visit Maya Ruins – Abandoned more than a millennia ago for reasons that archeologists still don’t understand, Belize and neighboring Guatemala are home to hundreds of enormous city complexes like Tikal, Cahal Pech, and Xunantunich that visitors can explore. In 2016, a team of Belizean archeologists uncovered the largest royal tomb ever discovered in Belize underneath the main pyramid at Xunantunich, and today visitors have the unique opportunity to watch these vital excavations unfold.
Islands and Beaches – Fall is a great time to benefit from plenty of sun and warm weather at some of the top destinations like Placencia, Ambergris Caye, and Caye Caulker. Work on your tan or head underwater to scuba dive and snorkel the amazing Belize Barrier Reef.
Special Airfares – With the recent addition of Southwest into the busy North America-Belize market, airfares are more affordable than ever. Compared to 2015, the most airfares have been reduced by 20%, and fall is a great time to look for super saver fares.
There’s something for everyone! – Whether you’re interested in a fun family vacation, an exciting adventure, or want to enjoy a romantic getaway or honeymoon, Belize is truly the country that has something for everyone. Enjoy a candlelit dinner under the stars, take your family to the Belize Zoo and Wildlife Education Center, ride a zip line through the jungle canopy, or brave the inky depths of a subterranean cave – all on the same day, if you wish.
