Known for its stunning Caribbean views and incredibly friendly people, Belize is a popular vacation destination for LGBTQ travelers.
At Belize Gay Travel, we believe that everyone deserves a summer vacation. After working hard all year long, heading to Belize is the perfect way to unwind, unplug, and recharge your spirit. Head on down to Belize and enjoy fresh-caught seafood on the beach, live music from incredibly talented musicians, and plenty of interesting things to do and see.
Whereas once exotic destinations like Belize might have been off the radar for the LGBTQ community, it’s now easier than ever to enjoy a vacation in this Caribbean paradise. All of the biggest airlines in North America now fly direct to Belize, and lodging options range from luxury island resorts to “green” eco-lodges located deep in the jungle.
Here are four great reasons why you should consider a summer vacation in Belize:
The weather in Belize is, truly, just about as good as it gets. In the summertime, the water is the perfect temperature to enjoy swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, sea kayaking, and windsurfing. And the days are long and sunny without being too hot.
Do you like lobster? Because Belize is world-famous for its lobster. Caught in the waters immediately offshore, lobster is part of Belize’s finest culinary traditions. Beginning in June, when the lobster fishing season opens, coastal towns and islands hold exuberant Lobsterfests which feature live music, dancing until dawn, and, of course, all the lobster you can eat.
As big as a whale yet as harmless as a kitten, whale sharks are some of the most majestic creatures in the world’s oceans. Every year, they circumnavigate the globe, arriving in Belize during the late spring/early summer. Measuring up to 40 feet long and weighing as much as a school bus, these gentle giants pose no risk to humans as they feed exclusively on microscopic plankton.
Many countries have beaches, but few nations have beaches as beautiful as those found in Belize. With over 200 miles of coastline and hundreds of islands, Belize has gorgeous white sand beaches. Many of the islands are protected conservation areas, meaning they are the perfect spot to enjoy unparalleled views of the Caribbean or enjoy activities like scuba diving and snorkeling.
Whether you’re coming solo to mix and mingle or want to plan a fun summer vacation for your friends/family, Belize Gay Travel is the name to trust for all of your LGBTQ travel needs.
