Belize Travel Offer: Have A Day and A Night in Paradise On Us
Stay three days and nights at Chaa Creek in August and enjoy a fourth for free
With August pretty much the height of summer in North America, is there any reason to head south to tropical Belize for a vacation?
Actually, there are several, and they’re all pretty good. Some, like the slower pace compared to high season are obvious, and some may actually surprise you.
Let’s start with a surprise:
Chaa Creek’s Pay for Three, Enjoy a Fourth Day and Night Free August Special.
That’s right – throughout the month of August 2018, The Lodge at Chaa Creek is offering a free fourth day and night’s enjoyment of eco-luxe accommodation, amenities and activities when you pay for three.
And if a hefty 25% discount isn’t enough of a reason to make you seriously consider an August vacation in Belize, here are a few more:
Weather in Belize in August
Going south in the summer may seem counterintuitive, but Belize can actually be cooler and more pleasant in August than in many parts of the US and even Canada. In a country 170 miles long by 68 wide, with that 170 mile part a long Caribbean coastline in the shelter of the world’s second largest barrier reef, there are usually fresh sea breezes to keep things nice and pleasant. And with huge swatches of rainforest, along with the misty Maya Mountains, rivers and waterfalls inland, Mother Nature has provided Belize with one of the most pleasant summer environments on the planet.
With an overall monthly average temperature of 82°F (28°C), and a decrease in rainfall known as the “Little Dry”, August is a great month for swimming, poolside lounging, horseback riding, canoeing, nature walks, exploring ancient Maya temples and enjoying the wealth of activities Belize is famous for.
Which brings us to another reason:
Low Season in Belize
While Belize never feels crowded, the advantages to visiting any tourist destination in low season still apply here. While the beaches, parks and attractions up north may be busy, things are pretty peaceful in Belize during August. Less visitors equals a more relaxed pace, smaller groups in tours and excursions, and more deals to be had. In fact, August is one of our favourite months for exploring the country, and you’ll quickly understand why.
Speaking of exploring the country leads us to Reason Number Four:
So many things to do
August is the month of the International Costa Maya Festival in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, billed as “Belize’s Biggest Cultural Event”. From the 2nd to the 5th of August, San Pedro comes alive with one of those “Only in Belize” events, making it the perfect month to plan a surf and turf holiday combining a jungle adventure with a Caribbean island holiday. And with lobsters still in season, and restaurants less busy, it’s a perfect time to enjoy these delectable crustaceans – along with Belizean cuisine in general.
The same goes for visiting Belize’s most popular ancient Maya sites and ceremonial caves. August is one of the best times for exploring Actun Tunichil Muknal, or the ATM cave, as it’s known, and there are days when visitors will have popular sites like nearby Xunantunich all to themselves. With less rain days and people, planning excursions and day trips in August is a breeze.
And what better way to use that free extra day at Chaa Creek than by enjoying another day trip, or a horseback ride along jungle trails, a leisurely canoe paddle down the Macal River, or just lounging around the infinity pool thinking what a great idea an August vacation in Belize was.
So what are you waiting for? Ask your favourite travel agent or contact Chaa Creek directly about the August Pay For Three, Enjoy a Fourth For Free special, and start planning a summer vacation you’ll always remember.
