Looking for a great place to enjoy some turkey and trimmings but don’t want to deal with cold November weather? If you’re ready for a great Thanksgiving Day celebration, consider celebrating the holiday with a journey to beautiful and exotic Belize.
Thanksgiving isn’t an official holiday in Belize, but it’s widely celebrated due to the large number of Belizeans who live and work in the United States and because Belize is the only country in Central America where the official language is English. As such, Thanksgiving in Belize has become a quasi-official holiday and is one of the most popular times for visitors from the United States to visit the country.
Belize resorts all across the country warmly welcome visitors from the United States for Thanksgiving with plenty of delicious, home-cooked foods, including turkey, a native animal to Central America that has been enjoyed by the Maya people for thousands of years. And if you’re worried about missing the Big Game, don’t be. Belize resorts all rely on satellite TV beamed in directly from the States, so guests can relax and enjoy the game in style.
Instead of slaving away for hours to prepare food or schlepping through snow and ice to visit someone else’s house for Thanksgiving this year, why not go to Belize? Beyond not having to worry about doing the cooking and clean-up, Belize is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors. November is one of the most beautiful times of year in Belize with sunny skies and daytime temperatures averaging around 82°F (28°C).
With such great weather, it’s easy to enjoy Belize travel activities like swimming, snorkeling, birdwatching, scuba diving, or enjoying a canoe trip down a jungle river. Other, more adventurous activities include exploring ancient Maya caves, zip lining through the jungle canopy, horseback riding, and cave tubing, a uniquely Belizean activity involving floating down underground rivers on an inner tube or small canoe.
Have you been wondering where to celebrate Thanksgiving this year? If so, be sure to book your stay at the beautiful Belize Boutique Resort and Spa. Located on a gorgeous 1,000-acre property just thirty miles north of the international airport, the resort will be putting on a huge Thanksgiving spread for its guests. And, if you’re interested in burning off a few calories later, the resort also operates tours to all of the top destinations in the country.
