Far from the biting winds and cold snows of North America, Belize is a beautiful Caribbean country that enjoys golden sunshine and lovely warm temperatures during the Christmas and New Year’s season.
Just 2-5 hours’ flying time from major cities across the United States and Canada, Belize is the only country in Central America where English is the official language. Although a small nation, Belize is blessed with both an unspoiled mainland with lush rainforests, misty mountains, and vibrant jungle as well as an enormous barrier reef offshore, home to hundreds of picture postcard islands and world-class snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, and fishing.
One of the best places to enjoy your Christmas and New Year’s vacation is at Black Orchid Resort. Located just a 30-minute drive from the international airport in Belize City, Black Orchid Resortis located in the tranquil village of Burrell Room on the banks of the lovely Old Belize River.
Featuring tasteful, modern suites and rooms, Black Orchid has every amenity, including an onsite gourmet restaurant, professional spa center, swimming pool, bar (serving amazing rum drinks), and lovely hiking trails along the banks of the river.
Best of all, Black Orchid Resort is close to all the top attractions in the country, including the Belize Barrier Reef, the historic downtown section of Belize City, the Belize Zoo and Tropical Education Center, and animal refuges like the Community Baboon Sanctuary.
Black Orchid Resort also offers guests organized tours to learn more about eco-tourism and the astounding biodiversity of the country’s flora and fauna, including exotic wildlife like jaguars, monkeys, and toucans. Guests can also explore the rainforest to see hundreds of flowering plants, including the black orchid, the national flower of Belize.
Other popular tours include visiting the famous Traveller’s Rum distillery, exploring the depths of the Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) Cave, once used by the ancient Maya to perform human sacrifices, and traveling to national parks with majestic waterfalls and lovely swimming areas perfect for cooling off on a hot day. Guests also have the option to tour top ancient Maya cities like Tikal, located just a few miles over the border in Guatemala.
With so much to offer, it’s no wonder why more and more people are choosing to enjoy their Christmas and New Year’s vacation in Belize. And don’t worry, there’s plenty of old-fashioned celebrations, including caroling, hot cross buns, and town fairs.
Because space is limited, book your Christmas and New Year’s vacation at the Black Orchid today.
