5 Tips for Belize Travel

Belize Travel

A Belize rainforest vacation awaits your discovery, but before you head over, make sure you’ve got all your plans in place. This beautiful country is full of adventure and relaxation opportunities.

To ensure you have the best time on your trip, follow these top 5 tips for easy Belize travel!

  1. You can use USD

If you’re coming to Belize from the U.S., you can still use USD. Just about every business will use this form of currency so you don’t have to worry too much about converting. Check with your Belize eco resort in advance to find out if any activities will require the conversion, but otherwise, you’ll be all set!

  1. Know the best time to visit

Belize is a wonderful place to visit at any time. However, if you want to avoid the wet season, that’s from June to November. In the summer, Belize has plenty of festivals and events which make it a great time to visit, like the Lobster Fests. September is when you’ll find the celebration for Belize’s Independence Day, but during this month and October too, it is more prone to tropical storm systems.

For anyone that lives in a cold climate, your perfect Belize vacation may be a winter escape. December and January are ideal for getting into the holiday spirit without having to worry about shoveling snow. Plus, it would make a wonderful gift for the whole family to do Christmas in a special setting like this, amid the scenery with your Belize rainforest resort.

  1. Pack right

Don’t overthink what you pack in your luggage to come to Belize. This relaxing rainforest vacation doesn’t require that kind of stress. You’ll want to check the weather and plan to be comfortable, especially when it’s hot. At Jaguar Creek eco lodge in Belize, we are newly on the grid which means we use fans rather than air conditioning. Light and breezy clothing is recommended.

You’ll likely want your swimsuit and beach attire. Whatever you do, don’t forget that sunscreen or mosquito repellent. And if you do, just ask our friendly staff and we’ll help you track some down.

  1. Plan Your Activities in Advance

While you don’t have to have your itinerary jam-packed like Clark W. Griswold would from those Vacation movies, you really should decide on some adventures in advance. You can go cave tubing, zip lining, explore the Maya ruins, and plenty more.

By planning ahead, you’ll be able to stick to your budget. Of course, you may decide something sounds exciting after making new friends at the Belize eco lodge. You can always see about signing up for these adventures once you arrive.

There’s also nothing wrong with taking it easy on your activities either. Jaguar Creek has meditation spots, terraces, and gardens that are perfect for that. There are also tours and classes about local culture plus hiking and walking tours. You’re bound to find something that will suit your mood.

  1. Book a stay with great adventures

When you’re in Belize, you want to discover what makes it such a unique place. Staying in Jaguar Creek eco lodge in Belize gives you the chance to disconnect from the constant buzz of your life and escape. Our peaceful jungle lodge is surrounded by rainforest with wildlife and fauna to discover at every turn.

We focus on sustainable practices and our staff of locals attends to your needs with home-cooked meals and friendly service for a resort experience. You’ll also have the chance to easily arrange all kinds of adventures. Join in one of the half-day or full-day tours that take you tubing through volcanic caves, or simply make time to lounge on the beach with cocktails.

No matter who you’re traveling with or what you’d like to see, there’s so much to discover from our jungle setting in Belize. Don’t forget to carve out time to see the ruins too. These places have been here for ages, and they are humbling to see.

Bonus Tip: Don’t Forget Souvenirs

Hopefully you’ll have the chance to come back to Belize again and again. Before you head home, don’t forget to grab some souvenirs that will serve as a reminder of your trip. Belizean rum is a must so you can make those tasty cocktails when you get home again.

You may want to get some locally made crafts like jewelry, Mayan baskets, and local carvings. Handmade soaps make a great gift for anyone back home. And whether you went on your own adventure without the kids or brought them along, chocolate from Belize is always a welcome gift.

With these tips, you’ll be sure to plan ahead for everything you need when it comes to visiting Belize!
