As the cold begins to dig in for the long winter season, it's only natural that people start to consider where they can go to escape and get some warm sunshine.
At Caves Branch Jungle Lodge, now is the perfect time to plan and book a wonderful 2018 holiday in the tropical warmth of beautiful Belize. A small country on the shores of the Caribbean, Belize has a wide range of exciting activities and things to see and do.
To get you inspired, we've put together five of our favorite reasons why you should come visit Mother Nature's Best-kept Secret (Belize!):
The Plethora of Belize Adventures Available
Scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing through the jungle on a zip line, bird watching, horseback riding, rappelling down a waterfall, using bush skills to survive in the rainforest, and cave tubing (exploring a subterranean river) are just some of the many exciting activities that you can enjoy in Belize in 2018.
The Stunning Belize Climate
No snow in Belize, not now, and not ever! Instead, you'll enjoy golden sunshine, lovely breezes, and perfect weather to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors. The climate in Belize is almost identical to that in Miami, meaning it's always T-shirts and shorts weather, so leave your boots and scarves at home.
The Pristine Belize Barrier Reef
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Belize Barrier Reef stretches for more than 150 miles, a vast cornucopia of gorgeous islands, beautiful coral atolls, and crystal clear water teeming with fish. There's a good reason why legendary explorer Jacques Cousteau rated the Belize Barrier Reef as one of his top places to snorkel and scuba dive.
The Lush Belize Jungle
The Belize jungle is habitat to a potpourri of plants and animals.
At Caves Branch, we offer an assortment of jungle adventures that begin in the early evening with local bushmen as guides. Get out of your comfort zone in 2018 by walking through the jungle in search of many of the elusive animals that feed under the cover of darkness such as howler and spider monkey, gibnuts, kinkajou, wild boar, deer, quash, armadillo, tarantulas, scorpions, leaf-cutter ants and of course snakes!
The Eclectic Belize Culture
Belize has a small population (around 360,000 people), but it's one of the most eclectic melting pot societies in the world. In this tiny country, you can meet Creoles, Maya, Mennonites, Garifuna, Chinese, and even the American descendants of Confederate soldiers who emigrated here more than 150 years ago. And each culture has contributed to the food, dance, and music of Belize.
To experience all of the above and more, choose Caves Branch Jungle Lodge. Located in the heart of Belize's pristine jungle, Caves Branch offers luxurious jungle accommodations in the perfect setting for adventure.
This month, Caves Branch Jungle Lodge was given the 2017 Hospitality Award by the Belize Tourism Board in recognition of the lodge's friendliness and outstanding customer service.
