When Associated Press reporters Emilio Morenatti and Hernan Munoz went in search of positive stories related to COVID-19, they stumbled upon a fascinating story about Barcelona hospital staffers taking COVID-19 patients to a promenade beside the Mediterranean Sea where they watched patient response to the simple relocation prescription. Could this be a scientific reason to take a Belize beach vacation in 2021?
“After nearly two months of being sedated and connected to IV lines in a hospital’s intensive care unit, Francisco Espana took a moment to fill his ailing lungs with fresh air at a Barcelona beachfront.” The reporters concluded, “even ten minutes in front of the blue sea waters can improve a patient’s emotional attitude.”
Doctors were already aware of the therapeutic benefits of the sea, sand and salt air; this is just the latest news that verifies myriad studies undertaken by scholarly institutions. However, a University of New Hampshire study proved that beach vacations have the potential to immediately quell stress, contribute to the body’s critical need for vitamin D, help people sleep better at night and even act as a remedy for mood disorders.
Happily, you don’t need science to tell you that after an arduous 2020, a beach vacation offers multiple benefits. So why not Belize, with its pristine soft sand beaches? Not to mention, everyone speaks English and the journey from the U.S. takes only a few hours. It really is the ideal way to pay tribute to science while getting the healing benefits of rest and relaxation. Where to find all of this bliss? On Belize’s most popular peninsula of Placencia, where resorts like Chabil Mar Villas await weary travelers now and in the year ahead.
