As a society steeped in opportunities to fulfill instant gratification, it can be hard to put things off. You see something you want. Your mind and body are flooded with dopamine. Will you say yes or are you wise enough wait for a time that is more advantageous to your budget, lifestyle, and personal circumstances?
Plenty of people ignore delayed gratification because they don’t have the inner strength to resist, but for those who do, rewards tend to be sweeter, greater, and more significant—especially if you’ve been longing to see why world travelers have fallen in love with Belize.
By delaying your trip until you’re able to travel, you build character and get extra time to prepare and save. If that’s what you’ve been up to, consider this the sign you’ve been waiting for: February 2024 is an ideal time for your Belize escape, where so much is happening, you’ll be glad you waited!
Don’t miss Placencia’s annual art fair
February is the ideal time to vacation in Belize. The weather’s warm. The ocean is inviting, and if you are intrigued by local festivities, you’ll want to be on hand for Placencia’s Arts Festival, one of the area’s most anticipated events, scheduled for February 10th and 11th, 2024.
This annual festival was launched nearly two decades ago by founding members of the Placencia Peninsula Arts Association (PPAA), and when the group disbanded, the Placencia Chapter of the Belize Tourism Industry Association assumed responsibility for staging a bigger, more colorful, iconic event.
What treasures will you find? Soaps made from oils culled from Belize’s rainforest, paintings that dazzle, carved wood and woven crafts, jewelry, sculptures, and more. This show includes food, drink, kids’ activities, entertainment, and you needn’t worry about pushy exhibitors. Check out the festival’s Facebook page to whet your appetite.
Discover the art of fabulous hospitality
Laru Beya Resort plays host to art festival guests and if you’d like to be one of them, find a cozy haven filled with amenities like the freshwater infinity swimming pool, beach filled with inviting lounge chairs, water sports gear, complimentary bicycles for exploring the peninsula, rental golf carts and a spa specializing in artful services.
All this largesse is found within the Laru Beya All Inclusive Package that is filled with perks, and in honor of Cupid, Laru Beya is offering travelers a romantic Month of Love Special that not only gives guests $80 off per day on the all inclusive package but gifts you with a free Honeymoon & Romance Add-On for a sojourn any time between February 1st and February 29th.
Even if you can’t make it to Belize for the arts festival, this deal could be yours if you book immediately. After all, there’s an art to making sure you’re gratified and that comes with a bonus of thanking yourself for delaying your gratification until now! Come for the art. Stay for the sun. Can you feel the warmth just thinking about both?
