Belize can boost your health and wellness on your vacation
Visiting Belize isn’t just a great way to unwind and relax in one of the most beautiful places on the planet, it can also be good for your health.
In Belize, wellness travel is intricately linked with the pristine nature of the surrounding jungle and rainforest, a thriving, ecologically diverse environment that is home to gorgeous tropical flowers, more than 600 colorful bird species, and exotic animals like armadillos, tapirs, howler monkeys, and kinkajous.
Getting away from the noise and air pollution of crowded cities is only the first step in improving the health of your mind, body, and soul. Belize is a land where nature comes first and the loudest sounds you’ll hear are from birds and animals rather than cars or urban sources. Many wellness travelers begin their day by rising early to watch the sunrise, a spectacular sight when seen from the rainforest or offshore island.
After limbering up with a sunrise salutation, many health-conscious travelers enjoy a brief hike through the jungle or engage in a spot of bird watching. Even inexperienced birding enthusiasts can usually spot 50 or more different avian species due to the incredible diversity of bird life in Belize.
By spending time outdoors in the fresh air, you can help reduce your blood pressure, improve breathing difficulties, help reduce inflammation, and reduce your internal stress. Belize is a land where few people pay attention to clocks, and life is lived at a much more relaxed, Caribbean pace. Belize is also a great place to adventure or curl up with a good book while lounging by the pools.
One of the best ways to unwind is with a wellness vacation at the Belize Boutique Resort and Spa. Located on a pristine 1,000-acre property set in the middle of the rainforest in northern Belize, this Belize resort offers a full complement of spa treatments.
One of the most popular treatments available at the Belize spa is the mud massage. Using carefully balanced local clays sourced from the jungle, a mud massage can improve blood circulation and restore energy balances while all the key pressure points are being expertly manipulated by a professional masseuse.
As part of its commitment to health and wellness, the resort’s onsite restaurant menu is exclusively prepared with organic food. The resort also offers yoga retreats during select dates, so be sure to inquire when making your reservation.
