At Belize Gay Travel, we’ve built an extensive network with all of the top Belize resorts, hotels, and lodges that are welcoming to LGBTQ travelers, including LGBTQ families with young children. We know that it’s not always easy for LGBTQ parents and non-traditional families want the same thing as everyone else – a fun place to relax and build memories that will last a lifetime.
In the United States, the number of LGBTQ parents raising young children is growing in leaps and bounds. According to a recent Gallup survey, nearly 50% of all female-identifying LGBTQ individuals are raising a child under the age of 18, and the majority of male-identifying LGBTQ individuals under the age of 50 are either raising children or have expressed a strong desire to become parents in the near future.
The good news is that there’s plenty to enjoy for all members of the family in Belize. Activities include swimming in a pristine jungle river, horseback riding through the rainforest, bird watching (more than 500 species have been recorded in Belize!), and visiting an animal sanctuary to learn more about the incredible diversity of wildlife in the country.
Other popular family-friendly activities include attending one of the many Lobsterfests in Belize (lobster season begins in June), attending a chocolate festival, scuba diving or snorkeling with whale sharks (the largest fish in the ocean), and fishing. And athletic families can also enjoy activities like zip lining, rappelling, rock climbing, canoeing, windsurfing, sea kayaking, and stand-up paddling.
Belize is also brimming with culture and history. The country is home to more ancient Maya ball courts, plazas, and pyramids than anywhere else on the planet. Other popular options include visiting local villages to learn more about their traditional handicrafts, music, food, and dance.
