Adventure Travel Is A Great Way To Explore Belize
If you’re planning a May getaway, Belize should be at the top of your destination list. With warm days, cool nights, beautiful beaches and a wealth of things to do, Belize is the perfect place to enjoy favorite activities.
May is considered the off-season for tourists. That means you can stroll around, take tours and visit all your favorite places without fighting the crowds. Everything is still open, and tour guides have a raft of specials and discounts for those who choose to visit. If you have several things on your Belize to-do list, you can get them all done in May.
Belize enjoys beautiful weather most of the year. May is one of the warmest months here, with average daytime temperatures in the 80s and evening temperatures in the 70s. This is the perfect weather for taking life at our easy Belizean pace. If your Belize vacation involves beach activities, you’ll be happy to know that rainfall is low and the water feels great.
Just because it’s quiet in May doesn’t mean you’re missing out on all the fun. Belize is known for its lively, multi-day festivals, and May is no exception. At the end of May, get indulgent with all things cacao-related at the Belize Chocolate Festival, held May 24 through May 26 in Punta Gorda. The festival includes agricultural tours of Belize’s world-class cacao farms. While you’re in the area, explore the Maya and Garifuna cultures that are a key part of Belize’s history.
Swim, Snorkel and Sea Kayak
Take a deep dive into the rare natural beauty of the Belize Barrier Reef. Explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site that has fascinated swimmers and divers for centuries. Swim or snorkel alongside manatees, dolphins, tropical fish and sea turtles. Explore the reef and the surrounding cayes in a sea kayak that lets you experience Belize’s natural beauty up close.
Stay in a Treehouse
If you want a truly immersive jungle experience, stay in a tree house at Caves Branch Jungle Lodge. These luxuriously-appointed treehouses roost high in the trees above the jungle, affording you a view of the Caves Branch River, the clear blue skies and the unspoiled Belize wilderness. Coming home to your own treehouse is a wonderful way to end a day of blissful adventures in Belize.
Don’t forget to take advantages of the May deals and discounts offered at Caves Branch Adventure Company and Jungle Lodge.
