Mark Your Calendar: Belize Reopens on August 15, 2020!

Belize enjoys warm, sunny weather and laid-back fun all year, but what's the best time to visit? That depends on what your idea of the perfect Belize vacation is. Warm Up In the Winter Winter is the busy season in Belize. It runs from late November to early March, when thousands of people escape the cold gray skies and chilly weather for Belize's warm, sunny beaches. It's a busy, bustling time of year when you're guaranteed to find everything open. It's also peak time for Belize's most famous festivals and holidays. The weather is warm without being too humid. Winter is the perfect time to visit if you long for a tropical escape from your winter blues. You must book well in advance if you're planning to come during peak season. Spring for Springtime In spring, everything is lush, green and beautiful. The weather is slightly cooler than it is during the summer, which makes it a great time to enjoy Belize's outdoor activities. Many people prefer to visit in the spring because it's quieter, less expensive and greener than the winter. It's still fairly busy, and you'll have no trouble finding activities and excursions. Easter is a major holiday in Belize, and visitors come from neighboring countries to help us celebrate. If you plan to visit during Easter, make your plans well in advance. Summer Savings Summer is considered the "off season" in Belize, and it's the perfect time to go if you want the best deals and the smallest crowds. You can find amazing discounts even at the last minute. You won't have to wait in line or worry that your favorite attraction is sold out. The weather is warm, with brief, cooling showers that keep everything green. A few businesses close during the "low" season, but you won't run out of things to do or see. It's also the start of lobster season, which means lobster festivals. Summer is the right time to visit if you want to take it easy, enjoy some sunshine and save some money. Fall for Belize From October through November, Belize gets a lot of rainfall. This is considered the "wet season," and it brings out the true beauty of Belize. You'll be surrounded by colorful flowers and lush green rainforests. This season is marked by several festivals such as Belize Independence Day and Finados, which is similar to Mexico's Dias de Los Muertos. It's a great time to see Belize in its full glory. It's Always the Right Time to Visit Belize There's no bad time of year to visit Belize. All year long, you can enjoy our spectacular scenery, fun festivals, great food, outdoor adventures, historic sites and cultural tours.

Airlines that fly to Belize

Not since Belize government officials joyfully replaced the flag of British Honduras to hoist the new flag of Belize has a nation been so delighted to celebrate a landmark occasion. On August 15, 2020, the nation’s travel industry is set to begin the process of returning to some semblance of normalcy for the first time since the COVID virus brought the entire world to a stop in order to quell outbreaks and protect citizens.

What does that mean for people eager to travel once more? Peace of mind. “Belize Tourism Board’s mission to keep safe both visitors and community members has elevated protocols and practices to new heights,” stated the Hon. Manuel Heredia, Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation.

One of the most noteworthy ways of assuring people of safety measures now in place was the recent creation of the “Tourism Gold Standard Recognition Program,” a unique plan encompassing stringent hotel and restaurant cleaning practices, social interactions, workplace policies and operating procedures that are unmatched among Central American nations.

A standard of excellence travelers crave

At Mariposa Beach Resort, one of Belize’s most luxurious properties, receiving Gold Standard Certification from the Belize Tourism Board is only the latest honor this resort has earned, which is why considering this particular property as your current or 2021 destination just makes sense. This all-inclusive resort’s staff is invested in keeping guests safe during their vacations and is proud to share their commitment with website visitors eager for reassurances.

Knowing that you will be safe and looked after, you can get on with the business of enjoying the vacation you so badly need after surviving the first half of 2020 at Mariposa, located on the Placencia peninsula

Why the gold standard matters

When the Belize Tourism Board began to certify resorts, not every one of them made the cut. But since Mariposa Beach Resort met those stringent criteria, guests receive a bounty of benefits in addition to enjoying the safety and security promised by the program. While all visitors must continue to wear face masks in public, resort staff aims to fulfill all of the wishes on your list. That means tours you want to take are even better because each one accommodates fewer participants than before and the resort’s spa will be open for your enjoyment as a result of Gold Standard designation.

But the gold standard means more than just extra measures in place to keep you worry free: Mariposa Beach Resort will be delighted to ensconce you within one of the property’s lush tree houses if you like and when you see how much Belize vacation package rates can reduce your holiday expenses, you’re not going to want to say no.

Given this luxury beach resort’s small size, intimate atmosphere, spa, tours and onsite gourmet dining, bookings are being snapped up for post-August 15th dates all the way into 2021 thanks in part to the property’s Gold Standard status.
