Celebrate Thanksgiving in Belize
This year, Thanksgiving Day will fall on November 22, 2018. And one of the best places to enjoy Turkey Day is in the lovely country of Belize.
Thanksgiving isn’t an official holiday in Belize, but the close ties between Belize and the United States have made Thanksgiving a popular holiday nonetheless. And where better to enjoy turkey and a delicious assortment of sides than Belize? November is a month of sunny days, delightfully warm temperatures (averaging around 83F/28C), and lots to do and see. In fact, many people walk off the extra calories by hiking through a wilderness sanctuary or visiting an ancient Maya site.
Everyone in Belize speaks, so you’ll feel right at home. And instead of dealing with the hassle of buying all the food, cooking all the dishes, and doing the clean-up, you can relax in comfort and style poolside at a lovely resort. Oh, and in case you’re worried about missing the big game, Belize is in the same time zone as Denver and Phoenix, and most of the top hotels and resorts have satellite TV from America. Belizeans love food, and ingredients like turkey, sweet potatoes, corn, and even chocolate are all native to Belize. But you can also enjoy fresh-caught seafood or some Caribbean-style soul food, if that’s more to your liking. And there are few better ways to savor the big meal than with a tropical rum cocktail or a cold beer.
Despite its exotic landscape and sub-tropical climate, Belize is a lot closer than you think. Flying in from cities like Minneapolis, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, or Houston takes five hours or less. And if you’re enjoying a longer vacation in the region, you can also fly to Belize from cities in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Panama. Two Canadian airlines also fly to Belize from Toronto and Calgary, too.
Belize is a primarily rural country known for its spectacular nature. Over 600 different bird species can be found in Belize as well as exotic animals like monkeys and jaguars. And there are over 400 offshore islands that are perfect for activities like snorkeling, scuba diving, sea kayaking, and fishing.
