5 Scientific Reasons A Belize Beach Vacation Is Necessary For Your Health


Many people mistakenly think that a beach vacation or trip to a jungle lodge is simply a way to enjoy time off from work or school. But scientists have proven that visiting pristine natural locations like in Belize are actually good for your health.

Our Ancient Home

Not only are our bodies more than 75% water, but even our bones are one-third water. When you come to Belize and swim, snorkel, or scuba dive in the warm waters of the Caribbean, the ocean will trigger an immediate response in your brain, telling you that you're "in the right place."


Being immersed in the water is good, but humans also have a deep connection to looking at water as well. Recent brain scans have revealed that people feel less stress when they look at peaceful natural scenes like coastlines, waves, and pristine jungle areas.

Brain Rejuvenation

One interesting theory is that spending time in and around water helps the brain to recharge. A psychological study showed that individuals who spend time looking at nature scenes like beaches, waves, and coastlines perform better on intellectual tests. Even better, the students who looked at nature scenes also did better at skills that measure attention spans. Many vacationers in Belize report feeling more relaxed, peaceful, and at ease after spending a few days on the beach.

The Color Blue

Whether it's the deep sapphire hues of the Caribbean or the cerulean skies over Belize, blue is humanity's favorite color. More than 40% of people surveyed stated that blue was their favorite color. Neurologists have shown that the color blue is associated with feelings of wellness, peace, tranquility, reward, and joy. Scientists believe that the brain responds directly to blue's wavelength because humanity developed under wide open blue skies and near blue sources of water, two vital aspects of the landscape that ancient humans had to navigate.


In 2011, researchers conducted a wide-scale study of more than 22,000 people, using a special smartphone app to track individual well-being levels. After assessing the more than 1.1 responses recorded by the app, researchers concluded that people were 5.2% happier when they were in the great outdoors instead of cooped up inside buildings.
