Making new Thanksgiving Traditions in Belize
Thanksgiving is a festive time, no matter how you spend it. How about switching turtlenecks and football for flip-flops and 90-degree weather? For example, many people start their ‘Turkey Day” with a 5K run; honor this fun tradition, but switch the location! The scenic Placencia Peninsula, jungle trails in Western Belize, and sandy streets of San Pedro all make for excellent running views. You can also stay active by snorkelling the second longest Barrier Reef in the world just offshore, or mounting majestic and ancient Maya archeological sites, like Caracol. Book a tour with a Gold Standard tour operator here.
Go for a completely private Thanksgiving experience in Belize
How about spending Thanksgiving in a completely private island or villa? Experiencing Thanksgiving in Belize makes it easy to relax; and, not get caught up the details of recreating traditions from your home country. Instead, you’re investing in the creation of new ones on foreign land in Belize. With a private experience, whether by private villa or private island, you can truly appreciate where you are and who you are with! Have the restaurant to yourself, hire a private chef, or make your own Thanksgiving feast. For the remainder of your trip, explore Belize’s underwater world seemingly to yourself, or take a special family flight for an aerial Blue Hole tour by air. In Belize, you can make your own traditions with family and friends, like sailing into sunset on a local catamaran.
