Trade in the snow for some Caribbean Sea, switch your ski boots for flippers, and swap cozy sweaters for sunscreen for this Central American and Caribbean country. After all, quality time with loved ones is one thing that you’re guaranteed in Belize. With the festive season right around the corner, planning a winter trip to the tropics could keep your spirits high. Enjoy Thanksgiving in the tropics, or Christmas dinner on a private island for an un-Belize-able holiday photo backdrop. This year, challenge your usual Christmas tradition with a holiday in the tropics for sun-drenched memories. After all, Belize didn’t make Hopper’s list of Christmas destinations for nothing!
Starting December, American Airlines will begin flights to Belize from Dallas-Fort Worth and Charlotte, in addition to its Miami route. American is also offering pre-flight testing to passengers traveling on these routes; passengers can take COVID-19 PCR tests at home and expect results within 48 hours, the airline said. During Christmas in Belize, enjoy local traditions like homemade Rum Popo, black fruitcake, Jankunu dancers, and (hopefully!) San Pedro’s Holiday Boat Parade.
