Top Reasons to Visit Belize in March
If you’re ducking the cold winds and freezing temperatures of March, give yourself a break and head for the sunshine and warmth of Belize. March is the start of spring season here and it’s the perfect time to visit.
Spring means new life all over Belize. The forests are lush and green. Tropical flowers and plants like orchids, blackberries, bay cedars, coconut palms and jacarandas are bursting into bloom. The sky is clear and blue and hummingbirds and tropical birds fill the air.
Immerse yourself in local culture by attending the La Ruta Maya Belize River Challenge. Held March 8 through March 11, this 180-mile race draws regional and international teams to one of the most challenging canoe races in the world. Show up to cheer them on at the Hawksworth Bridge in San Ignacio and then join the teams for a celebratory drink.
Discover the mysterious and fascinating world of the ancient Maya. Belize has many of the most important Maya ruins in the region. In addition, the famous Tikal Maya Ruins are just over the border in Guatemala.
Combine your love of learning with a love of exploration by exploring the Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) cave. Hiking the ATM is considered a must-see by experienced cave explorers. Go cave tubing. This is a true Belize adventure that lets you explore ancient Maya caves in an inner tube that takes you down a river and through the caves.
