March is a great month to take a trip to Belize and here are 5 amazing reasons why you should visit:

1. The Weather is Great 

Belize enjoys beautiful weather almost every day of the year. In March, you’ll enjoy clear skies and average daytime temperatures of 83F. At night, sea breezes drop the temperature down to a cool, comfortable 74F. You can stroll comfortably around and enjoy everything that Belize offers.

2. Cheer on a Local Race 

In March, Belize holds the La Ruta Maya Belize River Challenge. This is one of the fastest, toughest canoe races in the world. Join the crowds as they cheer on the best local and international teams as they battle it out down the Belize River. This year, the race will be held from March 6 through March 9 and begins at the Hawksworth Bridge in San Ignacio.

3. Explore Maya History 

The ancient Maya empire ruled what are modern-day Belize, Guatemala, and parts of Mexico for centuries. Many of their most important sites are in Belize, where archaeologists have discovered impressive ruins at Altun Ha, Cahal Pech, Lamanai, Xunantunich and Caracol. You can also hop over the border into Guatemala to visit the ruins at Tikal.

4. Get Close to Nature 

Belize is known for its many reserves, sanctuaries and protected areas. Enjoy a huge variety of birds, fish, and wildlife. Get to know them up close at the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, a bird watcher’s paradise where you’ll find wetlands, waterfowl habitat, and pine savanna ecosystems. Visit howler monkeys, toucans, and hummingbirds at the Community Baboon Sanctuary.

5. Relax and Reflect 

Belize gives you the perfect opportunity to slow down and take life at an easy pace. There’s a lot to do here, but we’re a small country so it’s easy to get around. Surround yourself with peaceful sunshine, wonderful wildlife, and friendly people.
