Is there a difference between summer sun and winter sun? The question has fascinated astronomists for so long, speculation began before the first Maya people made their way to the region we now call Central America around 350 BC to the lowlands of Belize. Accordingly, the cosmos is predictable. In the Northern Hemisphere, it’s winter in December. In the Southern Hemisphere, snow in July is a real possibility. Only the Equator can be counted on to for mild temps year-round.
Why mention the Mayas and seasonal changes in the same paragraph? Because you want summer to last forever and just because snow and ice dominate the landscape outside your window, that doesn’t mean you can’t head south and find nirvana amid the beauty and magic of Belize where winter temperatures range between 77- and 81-degrees F. Sound divine? It is — so why would you want to deprive yourself of warm weather this winter?
What to do in 80-degree January weather in Belize
- Swim in a languid freshwater infinity pool that overlooks the Caribbean Sea
- Stake out a lounge chair along the sandy beach and proclaim it your domain
- Grab a kayak to explore beyond the shore or pilot a catamaran for the ultimate thrill
- Bike to the nearest town for a day of browsing, dining, shopping, and cultural sites
- Rent a golf cart for a self-guided tour or to get out and about at night
- Indulge in spa services without leaving your digs!
