“March” to the Beat of Your Own Drum in Placencia, Belize
You survived January. Put up with February. By March, you’re desperate to abandon your coat but winter continues on. We’ve got just what the doctor ordered: A March holiday in Placencia Peninsula, Belize.
According to mental health experts, symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)—a type of depression—tend to start in October and, in some cases, keep going until April. Lots of sufferers have had enough of it by February, seeking a land of sunshine, fun and mood-elevating activities.
Coming to Belize before you hit bottom means you don’t have to wait for April to rid yourself of the blues. Belize in March is just gorgeous and no matter where you go, you’ll find mood-elevating activities that range from trekking lush jungles, rainforests and mountains to diving, swimming, and other marine sporting endeavors.
For example, visit the Placencia Peninsula in March 2020, stay at the luxurious Laru Beya Resort and staff is happy to lend you some of the resort’s fun toys during your visit: kayaks, Hobie cats and paddleboards. You’ll have so much fun in the sun, recalling that it’s March may be impossible.
Adventure activities are yours to explore
If you insist upon sending selfies to friends that show you slathering on sunscreen and paddling a kayak, you won’t be the only guest at Laru Beya doing so! There is so much to see and do this month, you could fill a photo album with, for example, snaps of you on a whale shark expedition at Gladden Spit Marine Reserve where you can get up close and personal with these prehistoric looking, albeit gentle, creatures.
March is the month to hike Cockscomb Basin Nature Reserve where the last surviving Central American jaguars still live, take a Monkey River Tour named for noisy primates you’ll hear before you see them, and visit the Maya ruins of Nim Li Punit and Lubantuum to see how indigenous people who once settled this land lived.
But you’d rather work on your tan!
We understand. Perhaps you’ve been snowbound for months and the only exercise you’ve gotten is scraping off your car. You’re invited to do nothing more than stick around at Laru Beya, roaming Placencia Village after borrowing one of the resort’s bicycles to check out local crafts, sample Belize beers and wines and do all of this wearing summer clothing and a pair of flip flops.
Back at the resort, get in some laps in the resort’s infinity swimming pool and make sure someone takes a photo of you in the pool that practically spills into the Caribbean Sea. Magnificent palm trees sway in the breeze as you try a round of mini-golf, borrow a book from the resort library, pilot a golf cart around the vicinity and frequent the Quarterdeck Restaurant and Bar offering cool drinks that belie the March calendar page!
We would be remiss if we didn’t urge you to splurge on Laru Beya’s spa services so you can tell friends you enjoyed every second of pampering outdoors on your balcony or on the beach. In sum, stay at Laru Beya any time in March and we can assure you that you will revise the way you feel about a month that was never on your favorites list!
