5 Awesome Reasons to Visit Belize in the Summer      

 | Clicks: 1017

Summer is the perfect time to visit Belize. Falling during the "off" season, summer in Belize is when travelers can take advantage of up to 40% reductions on airfare, lodging, accommodations, and trips to the top festivals and destinations across the country.

Here are 5 great reasons to visit Belize this summer:

Lobsterfest


The spiny lobster is indigenous to the waters of Belize, and the country kicks off the opening of lobster season in June with many fun festivals. San Pedro, the colorful capital of the island of Ambergris Caye, holds a week-long party featuring local chefs battling to produce the tastiest lobster dish, beach parties, beauty contests, and lots of live music. Not to be outdone, the island of Caye Caulker and the beachfront community of Placencia also hold their own lobster parties in June.

Town Fiestas

Nearly every town in Belize has its own patron saint, the birthday of which is cause for a big outdoor festival and fair. Whether you visit the historic village of Benque Viejo del Carmen in the west or head to Orange Walk in the north, there are games, live concerts, rides, and plenty of delicious food to enjoy all across Belize.

September

Practically the entire month of September is one big national holiday after another, earning September the title of "golden month" in Belize. September 10 is Saint George's Caye Day that commemorates the historic 1798 naval battle off the island of Saint George's Caye (the original capital of Belize located just offshore from Belize City) that saw the British prevail over the Spanish. Street parades, poetry recitals, patriotic music, and lots of red, white, and blue (the national colors of Belize) continue until September 21, Independence Day when Belizeans celebrate their country becoming independent from Great Britain in 1981.

Great Deals on Airfare

All of the biggest airlines in the United States, including Southwest, Delta, American, and United offer non-stop flights to Belize from major cities across the country. Summer is the perfect time to visit Belize as airlines slash prices in order to better compete in the red-hot Belize travel market.

Caves Branch Jungle Lodge

Located near Belmopan in the country's eco-tourist Cayo District, the Caves Branch Lodge is the ideal jungle lodge  to enjoy a great summer vacation in Belize. Famed for inventing the unique Belizean adventure of cave tubing, Caves Branch offers special summer discounts for travelers to enjoy all the best that Belize has to offer.
