8 Reasons to Plan A Thanksgiving Getaway in Belize

Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude, reflection, and gathering with loved ones. While Belize may not officially observe this holiday, it offers a unique and unforgettable experience for those seeking a break from tradition. Here are eight reasons to plan a Thanksgiving getaway in Belize with Slickrock Belize Adventures.

1.Enjoy Favorable Weather Conditions 

November marks the transition from hurricane season to the cold front season in Belize, typically offering comfortable, warm weather. Although it’s the final month of the rainy season, the weather gradually improves throughout November, with most days being sunny and occasional, brief rainfall. In comparison to other low-season months, November typically experiences less rain.

2.Escape To An Off-Grid Island 

Trade the traditional Thanksgiving frenzy for tranquility on Long Caye’s serene shores. Picture peaceful mornings, pristine beaches, and the soothing sound of Belize’s only surf break. Embrace the simplicity of a sustainable island getaway that renews your spirit and leaves you refreshed– a different kind of Thanksgiving celebration.

3.Indulge In Thanksgiving Meals With A Belizean Twist 

Thanksgiving is not a national holiday in Belize; however, the holiday’s presence is increasingly felt, especially in tourist areas, thanks to American visitors. Many restaurants and resorts in Belize offer your favorite Thanksgiving meals with a traditional Belizean twist, making it possible for travelers to celebrate the holiday while enjoying their stay.

4.Participate In Endless Caribbean Watersports

Glover’s Reef Atoll, a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of Belize’s premier destinations for watersports enthusiasts. With Slickrock, you can enjoy snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, surfing, and more. The atoll teems with marine life, including sea turtles, sharks, parrotfish, eels, and over 700 coral patches, providing an unforgettable experience for nature and adventure lovers.

5.Take Advantage Of Lower Costs & Holiday Deals

Another advantage of visiting Belize in November is the lower costs. As most tourists begin to arrive in December, you can often find special offers, family discounts, and more affordable accommodations. Unlike peak seasons, you don’t need to book far in advance, as prices are not increased, and resorts are not usually sold out.

6.Bring The Whole Family (Or Don’t)

Slickrock features sixteen beachfront cabanas with one, two, or three beds and incredible Caribbean views. You can bring the whole family or leave them home for a more intimate experience. With a range of accommodations, amenities, and activities, Slickrock allows you to craft your ideal holiday to any age and preference.

7.Celebrate Garifuna Settlement Day 

While Thanksgiving isn’t a holiday in Belize, November 19th is a significant date known as Garifuna Settlement Day. This holiday celebrates the arrival of the Garifuna people in Belize and their rich cultural heritage. Festivals and events take place nationwide on this day, offering a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in Belizean culture and traditions.
