You can have your sun and your turkey, too, by coming to Belize.
Having celebrated Thanksgiving holidays at home with family, friends and traditions that include football, expressing gratitude and overdoing it on the pumpkin pie, most Americans insist that turkey is the reason for the season. Despite waiting a full year to get slices of white or dark meat on your plate, the preparations undertaken to get it to the table tend to be daunting and exhausting. Relaxation and turkey dinner? An oxymoron, for sure!
Would you like to have your turkey and eat it too?
Plan an exotic version of this holiday in Belize, away from the snow, ice and cold temperatures. Because seasonal rates stay low throughout November, you won’t have a problem convincing family members that this holiday is best spent in the sun and in a land where Native Americans once put down roots.
In fact, there are 900 Maya ruins throughout this small nation, so if you’re interested in knowing more about these fascinating indigenous people, you can. After all, how often do you celebrate Native American traditions at this time of year back home?
