As part of tradition, many folks like to be home for the Holidays to spend time with family and friends, sit down to a nice dinner, exchange gifts and celebrate the Season together. But spending the Holidays elsewhere can also be a great way to engage in and learn more about different cultures and their Holiday traditions.

If you’re looking for a different kind of holiday adventure this year, why not plan a vacation to beautiful Belize this December and see how others celebrate this glorious season? Ambergris Caye is a particularly ideal spot since it is High Season on the island-- that means little to no rain, perfect weather with very low humidity, and of course no mosquitoes! Need more reasons? 

Why Ambergris Caye for the Holidays?

Most of you know that Ambergris Caye is the largest island in Belize and the top destination for travelers in this western-Caribbean nation. But did you know there’s an intriguing mix of culture and delicious cuisine, and that Belize is an English-speaking country?

Flights are less expensive during this time of year as well, especially if your travel days are flexible. And accommodations at Grand Baymen Resort in San Pedro are very affordable with some of the lowest rates on Ambergris Caye! Grand Baymen also offers one of the largest swimming pools on the island, 2 tennis courts, an outdoor restaurant serving delicious tropical drinks and island cuisine, and a fully equipped gym – “The San Pedro Fitness Center”.

However, nothing cures the holiday and winter blues like sun and sand, especially the white sandy beaches on Ambergris Caye. Snorkeling and scuba diving are also just what the doctor would order for those who are snowed in, since exploring the waters of Belize can be quite the adventure!
