The Belize Tourism Board is not shy when it comes to pointing out the celebrations, holidays, and special occasions that are so diverse, travelers can’t wait for the next schedule of events they produce! For 2024, Easter will be celebrated on the last day of March, just one week after Palm Sunday.
Why mention both important dates? Because Belizeans turn the entire week into one big event, honoring not just Christians but folks who enjoy secular celebrations that mark this spring holiday. If you’re a fan of the Easter bunny, no worries. He’ll be around.
What’s on the 2024 Easter week calendar in Belize? Fun, religious services, and diversions like beach time, water sports, and historic tours. If you’d like to wind up in the midst of everything, making reservations at Hopkins’ Belizean Dreams Resort lets you fill your calendar with these and more:
- Observe the tradition of swimming on Easter Sunday following morning services. Families gather at their favorite rivers, pools, and lagoons, and since Belizean Dreams Resort is located on the Caribbean shoreline and offers guests a lovely infinity pool for their pleasure, you’ll gain access two out of three!
- Observe Easter by attending church. Your hosts at Belizean Dreams will help you find a house of worship and you may want to follow the local practice of eating fish rather than meat as a way to honor Christ’s resurrection.
- Eat at least one Hot Cross Bun during your stay. This is a British tradition. The cross splashed atop every bun is another homage to Jesus, so do check out Hopkins bakeries like Caitlin’s, Jashlenn’s Corner Bakery, and Shadel’s Magic Pastry Shop.
Incentives for your Easter escape
Belizean Dreams Resort guests can choose from four all-inclusive packages that cover solo, couples, family, and business stays, so they’re free to attend as many of these Easter events as they wish, knowing that accommodations, meals, and other perks are all taken care of.
It gets better. The Bliss Salon and Spa stands ready to pamper and relax guests, and if there’s availability, you could get in on the resort’s “Spring Into Paradise” deal that comes with a $70 per night discount for those who look into this special immediately. Whether you’re eager to celebrate your faith, or you just want to have fun at the tail end of winter, can you think of a better place to sojourn this Easter?
