Will you admit to taking a pass on all but essential engagements because you felt compelled to keep up with every basketball game’s outcome during this year’s March Madness? You’re in good company, and viewership numbers during telecasts prove it. Even women’s teams drew record-setting attendance and high ratings, and if you are still withdrawing from March Madness, you’ll be delighted to know that a passion for basketball isn’t limited to the U.S. and Canada.
Just a few hours away from North America’s southernmost ports, Belize has basketball fever, too. Like North America’s two hottest teams—UConn and LSU—Dangriga, Belize is home to the Griga Dream Ballers, an energetic team that has ignited a flame in Belize sports fans that is contagious. Even folks who never followed basketball have become converts.
About the Dream team
Griga Dream Ballers may be aspiring to dream scores, but the team’s name originated with sponsor Belizean Dreams Resort in Hopkins where staff, management, and guests all share a common enthusiasm for this 2018 startup. This team’s colors are yellow and black, so spotting players on the court is easy to do for fans of team members whose impressive average height of 6 feet 5 inches makes these dudes a force to be reckoned with. The team is headquartered in Dangriga, Belize.
Currently, seeded #1 by the Belize Elite Basketball League, Griga Dream Ballers is proudly sponsored by Belizean Dreams Resort, which recognized the team’s potential. Further, there are plenty of stars on this team’s roster. Among the most admired are two players who reside in Hopkins: Nayib Casimiro and Jamie Castillo.

As you can imagine, everyone in the area looks forward to basketball games whenever they’re played, but that doesn’t mean basketball-loving tourists should only travel south during the season. When you do, a sojourn at Belizean Dreams gets you even closer to the town these ballers call home since every month is ideal for a getaway.
When you’re not attending a game…
…it’s impossible to ignore the many amenities and tours listed on the Belizean Dreams Resort menu, not the least of which are the all inclusive Belize vacation packages that allow guests to choose the one that best fits their budgets and aspirations. Once all of the details are settled, expect to enjoy onsite amenities like the Bliss Salon and Spa where masseuses take care of adventurous guests in style.
If you’re convinced that your vacation won’t wait for basketball season, you’re in luck. You may find that you qualify for a Belizean Dreams special offer that could reduce the cost of your stay. Must you be a whiz at hoops to score big on these savings? Of course not! This dream vacation never disappoints and you won’t be required to wear yellow and black when you come for a visit—but do allow extra time in your itinerary if you plan to talk basketball with resort staffers!
