February isn't just a month for lovers; it's also a great time for travelers. And there's no finer place to enjoy a getaway vacation than Belize. While many people think of romance in February, there's a lot more going on than passionate holidays.
With plenty of warm sunshine and nary a trace of snow, ice, or cold, Belize is the perfect place to get things heated up in February. It's also an English-speaking country with a tiny, incredibly friendly population. And now that all of the biggest airlines fly non-stop to Belize, airfare is very affordable.
Here are some things you can enjoy in Belize during February:
With no shopping malls, traffic jams, or even stop lights, Belize is primarily a rural country with an extraordinary abundance of wildlife. Add in the year-round balmy weather, and it's easy to see why Belize is a great place to enjoy outdoor adventures.
Options include horseback riding, bird watching (more than 500 species are found in Belize), zip lining (sailing through the canopy on steel wires), cave tubing (floating down underground rivers), and nighttime safaris through the jungle. And if that's not enough adrenaline for you, you can also partake in adventures like the Black Hole Drop, rappeling hundreds of feet through the floor of a massive cave into a seemingly bottomless pit.
Ancient Maya Cities
After building massive pyramids, complex astronomical observatories, and colossal stone buildings in the jungle, the ancient Maya mysteriously disappeared some 1,200 years ago. For many centuries, these amazing sites were forgotten, but today, visitors can explore awe-inspiring locations like Caracol, Xunantunich, and Cahal Pech.
No one does Valentine's Day better than Belizeans. Whether it's eating locally grown and produced chocolate or inhaling the perfumes of thousands of jungle flowers, Belize exudes passion.
Popular romantic activities include overnight cave expeditions for two, sipping on champagne, cheese tastings, and luxury accommodations in a five-star tree house.
