WHY IS JUNE A GREAT TIME TO TAKE A FAMILY VACATION TO BELIZE?

You Betta Belize It! Family fun in the summer sun!

June marks the start of the summer holidays and its a great time to take advantage of “off season” pricing and lack of crowds to really enjoy a family vacation of a lifetime! Warmer weather marks the beginning of summer, with temperatures averaging in the mid-80’s and cool rains in the evenings and early mornings. There are a plethora of fantastic activities to enjoy including diving, snorkeling, jungle adventures, and more. Book your all inclusive vacation at Blue Marlin Beach Resort and start the summer months!

Here are the top reasons to visit us in June:

Lobster Season

Lobster fresh off the grill and straight from the sea

June is the kick off of lobster season, which is celebrated throughout the country, especially nearby Placencia, where a weekend of festivities including lobster grills, cookoffs, music, family games, street art, and, of course, more lobster in all its delicious forms. Placencia Lobsterfest, within an hour boat ride along the coast from Blue Marlin, makes for a great day tour from the resort. Lobster ceviche, bisque, kebabs, and even sausages grace the menus of street vendors and restaurants alike. Then we you get back in the evening, indulge even more. Here at Blue Marlin Beach Resort, we serve fresh, wild-caught lobster which is brought is by local free divers and fisherman and lovingly prepared to you liking by our Chef. This is truly from sea to table dining at its freshest!
