30 Great Reasons to Visit Belize in April 2020

Belize in April is heaven. Staying at the luxurious Coco Plum Island Resort is equally divine, no matter how many days you stick around.

April 1: Marks the start of Belize’s temperate weather cycle offering 85-degree days.

April 2: It’s international produce day. April’s National Agriculture Fair often hosts up to 40,000 visitors but it’s the dishes served by Coco Plum’s creative chefs that could turn you into a fruit and veggie fan.

April 3 is Find a Rainbow Day. In case a brief shower pops up on the island, stick around until to see that rainbow.

April 4: World Rat Day. Gibnut, a Belize delicacy, was served to Queen Elizabeth and nicknamed The Royal Rat. Try some.

April 5: On Road Map Day, leave the island long enough to take a driving tour of Belize, a nation so small, the east-west distance is only 62 miles wide.

April 6: It’s New Beers Eve. Belikin beer is always on ice at Coco Plum’s thatched-roof bar and restaurant.

April 7: On World Health Day restore your energy at the resort’s overwater spa where therapeutic massages await. Revitalize your senses with sunset yoga overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Maya Mountains.

April 8: It’s Draw a Bird Day. You don’t have to be an artist to chill out at the Coco Plum pool with a sketch pad. Order a tropical cocktail for inspiration.

April 9: On Winston Churchill Day, remember the famous Brit. Until Belize gained its independence, it was once called British Honduras.

April 10: On Farm Animals Day, Visit Belize’s Mennonite settlers who are likely responsible for delivering the milk for your coffee from their dairy farms.

April 11: Celebrate Pie Day by ordering extra desserts. Borrow one of the resort’s kayaks, Hobie cat, stand-up paddle board or all three to work off those treats.

April 12: Celebrate Walk on Your Wild Side Day by diving with Whale Sharks, the largest non-mammalian creatures on Earth. They don’t stick around Belize for long, but you might catch a glimpse them in April.

April 13: Make Lunch Count Day is best celebrated on a day tour sorted by Coco Plum’s staff. Pick your destination and packed lunches will be prepared for your journey.

April 14: Culinary star Ms. Jude can celebrate Gardening Day with you at the resort kitchen, teaching you to prepare yummy Garifuna dishes with garden-fresh ingredients.

April 15: Take a Wild Guess Day calls for a celebration if you chose a Belize all inclusive during the start of low season where your dollar stretches like crazy.
