If you’re searching for an overseas trip that’s going to take you a million miles from the ordinary but only a few hours away by plane, why not plan a trip to Belize and come home with money still in your wallet? Need tips? We’ve got them.
Do your homework
Internet searches and social media can save you a bundle if you search for deals. Visit Adventures in Belize’s website where your wish is the command of staff dedicated to helping visitors on a budget enjoy dream vacations.
Read Belize tourism newsletters
You’ll run into suggestions, discounts, and ideas galore if you sign up for newsletters and you may want to bookmark this helpful website, too: https://www.belizetourismboard.org/.
Comparison shop airline flights
Flight Hub, Expedia, CheapOAir, Kayak, Just Fly and other aggregators are just a few of the places you can go to get deals on plane tickets.
Fly down on Tuesday or Wednesday
Everyone else goes on vacation at the start or end of the week, so empty seats on airliners are more available and could less expensive on these two days.
Take advantage of seasonal lodging discounts
Snag dramatic discounts during summer months at resorts where crowds are small, but savings are big. Turn to Adventures in Belize for recommendations, too.
Travel as a group
Split the cost of accommodations and you can stay in luxurious, roomy digs for a fraction of the cost.
Fall in love with packages
These one-price deals usually include rooms, meals, local transport and tours. They save you money on everything you require, yet service and amenities are top notch.
Avoid Belize hot spots
Ambergris Caye is fun and lively, but it’s also expensive. Check with Adventures in Belize to get help choosing the right affordable location anywhere in the nation.
Piggyback on other people’s excursions
For example, ask the captain if he’s got empty seats on a deep sea fishing trip that’s already booked.
Be creative when it comes to in-country travel
Consider options like water taxis, rental cars, bicycles or scooters to get around. Rental golf carts could be all you need to get around if you don’t plan to travel far.
Frequent small eateries
You can’t go wrong when you patronize roadside stands and markets where the food is delicious and cheap.
Buy groceries at stands or shops and picnic on beaches and at parks to boost your meal budget.
Make it a health and wellness trip
Bring hiking shoes so you can walk reasonable distances to attractions in your vacation vicinity and get your daily workout, too.
Drink like the locals
Purchase bottles of Belize rum, cashew wine or other libations to keep your bar tabs in check during your Belize stay–unless you’ve booked a package that includes limitless beverages!
Make friends everywhere you go
Belizeans love tourists and are always happy to share tips about events, sites and places to see. Take their recommendations in addition to the help you receive from Adventures in Belize and you’ll not only have a great time, but save money as well.
