It’s November 1, which means one thing: the most wonderful time of the year is very, very close. For travelers, that also means the most stressful travel of the year is already here. But even if you’re only considering your Thanksgiving travel plans at the same time you’re finishing off your Halloween candy, it’s not too late to score a great deal in the Caribbean and specifically, in Belize. At the moment, Thanksgiving fare rates are still the cheapest to be had since the onset of the pandemic. While there’s been a resurgence of demand, it’s nowhere near the pre-pandemic, and that’s golden to all the procrastinators out there reading this right now. But these deals definitely won’t last — the sooner you book, the better.
And hey, even if you dropped the ball on Thanksgiving deals, consider this your reminder to book winter holiday travel to Belize ASAP.
