Belize comes alive during the month of September as the nation celebrates its relatively recent independence from Great Britain on September 21, 1981. Independence Day follows St George’s Caye Day on September 10th, the national commemoration of a 1798 battle that marked the turning point of the early Spanish/British Honduras conflict and what is considered to be the defining moment in Belizean statehood.
September 21 is Belize Independence Day, a big deal in this nation that is one of the world’s newest additions to the UN, having achieved independence from Great Britain on that date in 1981. September of 1981 also saw The Lodge at Chaa Creek officially make the move from small family farm to become Belize’s first eco-resort, ushering a new age of sustainable tourism for the region.
