Belize is fast becoming the place to vacation simply because it’s the only overseas destination located a few hours from North America where English is spoken extensively. Further, this small nation—about the size of Vermont—is sublimely navigable.
As a result of this confluence, travelers enjoy the same concentration of historic, natural, and cultural delights as they would in neighboring Mexico, but you can do more of them. Even a short stay offers visitors a solid immersion in a nation that has the most intriguing amalgam of cultures you’ll find in this hemisphere.
Given this concentration of resources, perhaps you worry that protocols associated with a Belize vacation require tourists to jump through hoops to prepare for a trip, but the process is a breeze if you adopt these seven tips.
Tip #1: Apply for a passport or make sure yours hasn’t expired or isn’t set to expire within 6 months of the time you plan to vacation in Belize. No visa is required unless you intend to stick around longer than 30 days.
Tip #2: Choose a resort that offers you an authentic stay that’s off the shoreline. The San Ignacio Resort Hotel is tucked into a vibrant jungle offering guests tranquility and peace. Staffers are happy to take you to the ocean on tours if aquatic sporting adventures are on your “to-do” list.
Tip #3: Animal lovers are encouraged to awaken early. Morning is the ideal time to spot wildlife, including birds that make the nation a birdwatcher’s paradise. Not only do more critters roam the land early in the day, but you get a boost of inspiration watching the sun rise in the east.
Tip #4: Access to ancient Maya ruins is extensive (there are 900 sites of varying size and splendor in Belize), thus visiting just one may not satisfy you. The earlier you get to these sites, the fewer tourists you’ll run into–and it’s cooler in the morning, too.
Tip #5: Pre-plan your sojourn before leaving home. At San Ignacio Resort Hotel, Belize vacation packages designed for folks of all ages and interests include accommodations, meals, and excursions tailored to guest preferences.
Tip #7: Splurge on perks that give you pleasure. Treat yourself to in-room spa services and exceptional cuisine options at the resort’s Running W Restaurant, provisioned by the family-owned ranch where cuts of meat originate!
Something amazing happens to travelers who stay at this epicenter of pleasure. You’re immersed in an environment delivering a true taste of Belize, avoid crowds, and indulge in a Belize tour menu that delights guests of all ages. Take advantage of Belize vacation specials to save money at “the only jungle in town” by booking a sojourn now. And spread the word. Family and friends could probably use an authentic tropical escape as much as you do!
