Reef, Adventure, and Lobsterfest – Three Big Reasons to Visit Belize This Summer
Summer is right around the corner, so where better to enjoy a fabulous summer vacation than Belize? There’s plenty to do, see, and explore in this small country packed full of wildlife, pristine landscapes, and stunning views.
Here are just a few of the exciting things you can enjoy on your summer vacation in Belize:
Lobsterfest in Placencia
Lobster season opens in June and the best place to enjoy the world’s favorite crustacean is in Placencia. The Placencia Peninsula is a 16-mile strip of golden beaches in southeastern Belize on the Caribbean coast. Lobsterfest is one of the country’s most popular festivals, serving up a mouthwatering assortment of creative and delicious lobster dishes along with plenty of games, live music, and fun for the whole family.
The Belize Barrier Reef
The Belize Barrier Reef is a marine wonderland. Part of the second-largest barrier reef in the world, the Belize Barrier Reef is a collection of tropical islands, atolls, and crystal clear lagoons teeming with marine flora and fauna. Whether you just want to enjoy a cold drink on a pristine white beach or prefer to head into the water to marvel at sharks, stingrays, anemones, sea turtles, dolphins, and hundreds of species of fish while snorkeling or scuba diving, no vacation to Belize would be complete without a journey to the reef.
One thing’s for sure: nobody ever complained of boredom while on vacation in Belize. On the mainland, you can hike through pristine rainforests, bird watch, horseback ride in the mountains, canoe down beautiful rivers, swim in a plunge pool beneath a waterfall, zip line through the jungle canopy, sail an inner tube down a subterranean river, or simply relax and enjoy the view in one of Belize’s many national parks and nature preserves.
If that’s not enough for you, Belize has more Maya sites than anywhere else. Explore gigantic cities of stone built thousands of years ago or brave the depths of sacred caves like Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) where Maya priests once conducted blood human sacrifices in a desperate attempt to appease the angry gods.
