Tired of the cold’s icy grip and the same old turkey dinner routine in November? Then it might be high time for a tropical retreat! Picture this: sandy shores, the soothing sound of waves, and the clink of glasses under the warm sun. It’s time to trade your end-of-year woes for sun-soaked beach bars, where the breeze carries laughter and joy along with the aroma of delicious seaside delights. Look to Belize’s beaches for a tropical respite. Here, the cold weather and traditional feasts take a backseat to the joys of sun and seaside eats.
