Winter in Belize
Posted by: Las Terrazas Resort
Have you always dreamed of getting away to a tropical island full of crystalline waters, white sand beaches, and luxurious hotel accommodations? While these things certainly describe the ultimate vacation destination, they aren't reserved for summertime alone. It might be winter where you are, but that doesn't mean that this award winning
tropical island should off the table for traveling; in fact, it's just the opposite! Book your stay at Las Terrazas Resort and come experience winter in Belize for yourself! Below are 5 reasons why our boutique resort on the island of Ambergris Caye is the coolest place to be this winter season.
Chase your blues away.
Are you recovering from the holiday blues? Do the cold air and gray skies have you feeling down? If so, then you can (and should!) escape the winter blues and exchange them for the magnificent aquamarine, azul, turquoise, and cerulean blues of the Caribbean Sea. It's a scientific fact that being near the water really does make us happier
: proximity to water gives you a sense of peace, reduces stress, helps you sleep more deeply, and increases creative output. The waters of the Caribbean Sea are sure to lift your spirits this winter season. Come relax and recharge on Ambergris Caye's largest private white sand beach at Las Terrazas Resort!
Whereas most of the contiguous United States suffers from cold winter weather, Belize is heating things up instead! In January, the temperate drops a bit leading to windy days and plenty of sunshine. By February, the days tend to be hotter with clear blue skies and few clouds. Shed your coats for a few days to come dip your toes in the water, walk along Ambergris Caye's warm sandy beaches, and cozy up in a private cabana at Las Terrazas Resort beneath the golden Belizean sun.
Experience the San Pedro Carnival!
Every year during the week leading up to Lent, the town of San Pedro on island of Ambergris Caye, Belize, explodes with ecstatic demonstrations full of singing, dancing, parades, flour fighting, and even a painting contest! This year's Carnival is slated for February 5-9 and is not for the faint of heart. Similar to Mardi Gras, this carnival encourages participants to celebrate and indulge in bodily pleasures before giving them up for Lent… but don't worry- it's all still relatively family friendly as kids participate in the fun as well! Pre-Carnival festivities begin at daybreak, with an event called J'ouvert, where participants are covered from head to foot with chocolate, mud, paint, or powder as they parade through the streets. On Carnival Day locals dress up in elaborate, culturally rich costumes and heartily dance the week away. On the last day of Carnival, painters flood the streets with a mixture of paint and water or egg whites with the sole purpose of trying to paint as many people as they can. It is a wild and fun celebration to be sure, and one that is not to be missed!
