With more than 400 offshore Caribbean islands located along the Belize Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, there’s no better place to enjoy some sailing than Belize. Whether you’re an experienced sailor or a lifelong landlubber, sailing vacations are rapidly becoming popular with families, adventure travelers, and couples.
Here are some great reasons why you should choose a sailing vacation:
1 – Freedom
There’s just something magical about looking out over the water and knowing that you can go wherever you like. No roads, no lanes, and no deadlines mean that you are truly free to decide where you want to go, what you want to do, and how you want to get there.
Oh, and did we mention that there are uninhabited islands and hidden coves to discover? And few experiences can compare to enjoying a picnic or beach barbeque on your own little patch of tropical paradise.
2 – Every Day Offers Something New
Unlike hotels and resorts, when you choose sailing, you’ll always see something new every day. Whether it’s the changing colors of the Caribbean Sea, a surprise visit from a pod of dolphins, or seeing a spectacular sunset, one thing is for sure – every day offers something new when you’re sailing.
3 – Privacy Is Guaranteed
Few things can spoil an otherwise great vacation than having to deal with nosy, loud, or disruptive neighbors. But when you’re sailing, the boat is entirely yours. If you feel like sunbathing on deck, you can. And you can play your music as loud as you like. Or, if you prefer, you can tie up at a marina and join in with others. The choice is always up to you.
4 – More Bang for Your Buck
Going on a sailing vacation might sound like you need to be Thurston Howell or have Bill Gates money, but the truth is that sailing vacations are often more affordable than staying at a hotel. With a boat, you’ll get your lodging, meals, and outdoor adventures all for one price instead of having to pay for each one separately. An all-inclusive sailing vacation comes with one upfront price, making it a lot easier to manage your travel budget.
