While North Americans fixate on spring bulbs morphing into colorful blooms, Belize welcomes the season by offering visitors all manner of perks. Weather remains idyllic, winter tourists depart, crowds desert beaches and reduced rates pop up like tulips. Who wouldn’t want to make May the month to take that long-awaited holiday in Belize?
Visitors find more to do than the usual water sports indulgences – scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, sailing – and the nation’s plethora of Maya ruins. During the month of May, the nation’s calendar is filled with holidays and events, too.
You’ll need a great place to stay if you intend to see for yourself why May is an ideal time to kiss those last snowflakes goodbye. Nothing surpasses the San Ignacio Resort Hotel for your Belize visit. This award-winning Belize resort is exactly what you need to welcome spring properly.
