5 Reasons to Make Belize Your Spring Break Destination
Spring is a wonderful time to visit Belize. The weather is perfect, with warm days and breezy nights. If you want a great spring break spot, here are five reasons to put Belize at the top of your list.
The ancient Maya civilization was incredibly advanced. We can thank the Maya for inventing calendars, numbering systems, the use of zero, terrace farming and advanced engineering. The Maya built impressive temples, homes, businesses, and pyramids. You can climb the pyramids and learn more about the Maya by visiting these ruins in Belize.
In the spring, much of Belize’s sea life is active. Gentle whale sharks also like to visit the warm waters of the Belize Barrier Reef during their own spring break. The barrier reef is the second largest one in the world and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s home to thousands of beautiful underwater coral, fish and sea mammals that you can swim with.
The Maya believed that caves were sacred because they were portals to the underworld. They used caves to perform human sacrifices and other important rituals. Cave exploration and cave tubing are top adventures that you’ll want to try while you’re here.
The Belize Zoo was originally founded as a sanctuary for abused and orphaned wildlife. It is now a nature reserve and learning center where you can visit many of Belize’s wild natives including jaguars, ocelots, panthers, mountain tapirs, howler monkeys, toucans, iguanas and other cuddly creatures.
- Take a Riverboat Cruise
The Old Belize River is another place where you can learn about our unique wildlife. If you’re a bird watcher, you’ll be amazed at the gorgeous tropical birds, waterfowl and hummingbirds that fill the air as you float by on a river cruise.
