All About Belize in Spring
Lively Easter Celebrations
Without a doubt, Easter is the highlight of the spring in Belize. You can think of it as the equivalent of spring break in the United States. Every year, Belizeans come from the mainland to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye to celebrate all weekend long. Fun-filled Easter celebrations include egg hunts, religious festivities, beach parties, and more!
During spring, the Belizean waters tend to be very vibrant and crystal clear. That means it’s the perfect time of the year to get out on the water and try your hand at exciting watersports, such as kitesurfing and parasailing. Throughout San Pedro, you’ll find various watersport outfitters to choose from, such as Passionkite Belize. You can also book an exhilarating parasailing excursion through us at Mahogany Bay Resort.
Magnificent Mango Season
What’s the most wonderful time of the year? Mango season, of course! These succulent fruits are in season during the spring, and people can’t wait to get their hands on some. As you cruise along the streets of San Pedro in your rented golf cart, you’ll see gorgeous mangoes for sale on the roadside. Nothing compares to the first bit of a juicy mango during springtime!
Did you know that Belize is famous for being an outstanding fly fishing location? Bonefish are the most readily available game fish for fly anglers and the best time to catch them is from March through November. Another popular fish in the area is the tarpon, which begins to migrate here during April. If you want to try your hand at fly fishing, Blue Bonefish in our village at Mahogany Bay Resort is your one-stop shop for fishing adventures. They offer guided fishing tours of the flats, Belize Barrier Reef, and other offshore fishing excursions.
Blooming Flamboyant Trees
Have you ever laid eyes on a flamboyant tree? These breathtaking trees are recognized by their exuberant clusters of flowers which range from yellow to orange and all shades of orange-red to crimson and vermillion red, with yellow flowers being the rarest. These dazzling flowers begin to grace Belize with their presence in April and reach full bloom in the summer. These trees only grow in tropical locations, and they truly are a sight to see!
