Belize Navidad! Christmas on Ambergris Caye Belize
Picture your Christmas holiday like this. The temperature is about 80 degrees…a cooling breeze is blowing off the ocean. It’s Christmas weather in Belize.
I know that there are still 50 days until Christmas – I’m hoping you don’t have that same annoying Facebook friend that I do. The one that posts the count each morning. 50 days seems like a lot but not if you are booking a last-minute vacation!
So what better time to share some pictures of the decorations in San Pedro and some around Belize – this year and over the last few years – because just because it’s NOT COLD doesn’t mean it’s not the holiday season.
Ok…I’ll say it…I think it’s marginally less corny as compared to “You’d Betta Belize It”.
The simple and GORGEOUS tree at my neighbor Tuto Belize – I wrote about them here. Glamping or Tiny House Living at Tuto Belize
Two bush-sticks and some lights.
Santa most certainly visits Belize…it’s just a lighter-weight suit. Here he is in Central Park San Pedro.
A few years back…posing in his tropical wear. (I remember a few people objecting to what they called a “prison tatt”…so judgemental! According to this article, 30% of Americans have tattoos. – Though at Galveston Beach…I’d guess 75% )
He was much slimmer in 2016! Though a little bit rude!
Last year’s tree…
There is a tree lighting ceremony each year – usually at the very beginning of December.
What’s more San Pedro than the snowman made of golf cart tires at Polo’s Gift Shop?
Or this pretty tree on the beach?
The Truck Stop is always a hub around the holidays. Lit by this beautiful tree…
They have LOTS of great decorations – fun place to take photos!
The daytime look.
Portofino Resort has this awesome tree.
And then at Grand Caribe Resort…
How about this one at the Beach Basket a few years back?
I really really really love outside decor using fishing equipment. Old lobster traps and buoy and conch shells. SO GOOD.
At San Pedro’s House of Culture (now closed) -a favorite of mine.
A tree up at Tranquility Bay a few years back.
At my friend Panny’s house last year. Conch shells are HEAVY! He’s THE guy if you want to explore the North of Ambergris Caye.
And 4 or 5 years ago at Giovanni’s spot at the back of town.
Or the MOST simple.
Next year at this time, we are all hoping that group events are “a thing” again. And we can get back to the San Pedro Lighted Boat parade (here is 2019)
And the LOVEFM Lighted Kids/Golf Cart Parade on Land. (Here’s 2018)
It’s ALL just too cute.
If you are visiting for the holidays this year, drive around in your golf cart…maybe when the sun is setting and check out the lights and the nativity scenes and enjoy the warm air. It’s Christmas in Belize!
I can’t wait to put up our Christmas tree at the camp.
You can even save it on Pinterest…if you’d like.
