Vacations can be a great experience for the whole family, especially when you choose to travel abroad. However, with so many possible destinations, it can be difficult to choose. If you are considering going to the Caribbean, Belize is where you should go, and here’s why.
Belize Is Safe
When you are traveling with the most precious people in your life, it will be very important for you to choose a safe place to vacation. Belize makes for one of the best travel destinations in the region for families because it is safe, especially in the more laid-back, rustic Cayo District in the west of the country. While like everywhere it is important to take reasonable precautions, the crime that does occur is almost never targeted at tourists.
See And Learn About Animals
Most kids are fascinated by animals, and it can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see many of these amazing creatures up close. For example, families can learn about the Green Iguana Conservation Project right on-site at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel. Other opportunities include birdwatching and wildlife tours, all led by qualified guides. Aside from iguanas and exotic birds, other wildlife you might see during your trip include monkeys, tapirs, and crocodiles. If you are lucky, you might even spot an elusive jaguar.
Experience Other Cultures
The benefits of exposing kids to other cultures are numerous. They will learn about experiences and ways of life other than their own and will become better citizens of an increasingly interconnected world. In Belize, one of the most prominent cultures of the past and present is the Maya. Large Maya ruins are present throughout the country and are one of Belize’s most popular tourist attractions. Your family can also go on modern cultural tours where you will meet the Maya’s descendants and learn how they live today.
Establish A Family Tradition
One of the most amazing things about family vacations is that they can create family traditions that will last for generations. You and your children might both fall in love with Belize, leading them to want to return with their own children. Establishing these traditions often brings families closer together and makes choosing a destination your family will love even more important.
For all of these reasons and more, Belize remains one of the best destinations in Central America and the Caribbean for families. Plan your stay at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel to experience all the joy and wonder Belize has to offer your family.
