Chabil Mar Resort: A Bliss-filled Respite in the Summer and Fall

by Larry Waight

If you have lots of leeway when it comes to travel plans, have you ever asked yourself this: “Am I choosing the right season for my vacation?” Travel experts sing the praises of summer trips when lodgings and attractions are the most affordable and crowds are sparser. Bridge the end of summer with the beginning of fall, though, and deals may be even better, according to travel experts who tout Central America—especially the Caribbean Rim—as the ideal destination for both seasons. By far, the most desirable nation for that very late summer escape is Belize, where the lack of a language barrier (Belize’s national language is English) and the overall safety compared to neighboring nations make vacationing worry-free. 

Destination? Check. Resort? That’s next!


Finding the perfect locale for your seasonal getaway is one of the most critical vacation decisions you’ll make. Location, amenities, and of course, affordability, can all make or break your late summer escape to Belize.  Luckily, all three of these are guaranteed at Placencia’s Chabil Mar Villas. Spending Summer and Fall at this boutique resort perched on the edge of the Caribbean Sea is sure to impress. 


Opt for an all-inclusive stay, or choose a special package that suits your needs. Regardless, you’ll spend your time having fun rather than having to make endless decisions, especially with the array of summer and fall festivals and events awaiting in Belize. 

Come in July for a World of Fun:

  • The Belize International Music and Food Festival will be held on July 29th and 30th.

For Guests who Want to Do It All


Chabil Mar staffers are very enthusiastic about informing visitors about these and other happenings, but if you’d like to enjoy a more relaxed stay, be sure to reserve time for amenities at the resort. You’ll be footsteps away from the ocean where you can swim or pilot kayaks and paddle boards. Borrow a bicycle to roam the peninsula. Or, take a dip in one of two onsite swimming pools.
