7 Reasons to Pack Your bags and Visit Belize in October
October is truly a great time to pack your bags and come visit this sparkling gem on the Caribbean. October is when airlines offer great fares, the top resorts and lodges in the country offer discounts, and the days are full of lots of luscious sunshine.
With so much to see and do, October is a wonderful time to visit. Here are 7 additional reasons why you should book your reservation today for an October vacation in Belize:
1 - No Crowds
Belize is becoming such a popular destination that many of the top destinations get crowded during the high season. In October, there are fewer crowds, meaning visitors can get a chance to tour the ruins of ancient Maya cities, head out to the reef, zip line through the jungle, or explore sacred caves.
2 - There's So Much to See and Do
In a country the size of Massachusetts but fewer residents than a single suburb of Boston, Belize is a wonderland of pristine natural beauty. The mainland is a mix of mountains, rolling foothills, savannas, jungles, and rainforest, home to a healthy biosphere of wildlife and plants. Belize has hundreds of islands up and down the Belize Barrier Reef, the second-largest barrier reef in the world, providing an idyllic tropical island experience.
Whether you want to relax on the beach or enjoying exciting adventures, there's something to see and do for everyone in Belize.
3 - Laru Beya
The award-winning luxury resort of Laru Beya is located on the Placencia Peninsula, famous for having the most beautiful beaches in a country blessed with more than 180 miles of shoreline.
Laru Beya offers 20% discounts for all of its room during October, a great way to experience the very best that Belize has to offer at a very affordable price.
4 - Experience True Diversity
Belize is a true melting pot. The 350,000 residents are an amalgam of cultures like the Mestizos Creole, German Mennonites, and the Garifuna (an Afro-Caribbean people), each with their own foods, music, and heritage. October is a great time to check out the Garifuna village of Seine Bight, a few minutes' walking distance from Laru Beya.
5 - Beaches and Jungle
Belize is a country where you can hike through a pristine jungle in the morning and splash in the warm waters of the Caribbean in the afternoon. The western Cayo District area is the eco-tourism capital of Belize, the perfect place to enjoy jungle activities like canoeing down a river, birdwatching, and horseback riding.
6 - Learn About the Maya
For more than 2,000 years, the powerful Maya civilization dominated most of Central America with their epicenter in what is now the country of Belize. Today, visitors can explore dozens of ancient ruins, marveling at soaring pyramids, gigantic temples, and gorgeous glyphs that depict the long and proud history of this once-mighty empire. Other top Maya attractions include the ATM Cave where Maya priests conducted their most sacred ceremonies, including human sacrifices.
7 - Convenient Travel
WestJet will be offering non-stop service from Toronto to Belize City starting this October, joining a growing list of top carriers that offer non-stop flights from cities like Houston, Atlanta, Miami, Dallas, and Charlotte, North Carolina. Only a few hours' flying time from many cities in the United States, it's now easier and more affordable to get to Belize than ever.
