Visiting Belize

Neurologist Gayle Rebovich, MD, has traveled to other countries, such as Sierra Leone, where she was part of a group responding to the Ebola outbreak. Gayle Rebovich, MD, has also traveled to take time off and relax, and one of the countries she has visited for that purpose is Belize.

Belize is in Central America, between Guatemala and Mexico, with coastline on the Caribbean Sea. Slightly smaller than Massachusetts, it offers a combination of Latin American and Caribbean culture with Mayan heritage. There are daily commercial flights from a number of cities in North America, landing at Philip Goldson International Airport close to Belize City.

The peak season is December through April. From January to April, visitors can expect sunny skies as well as higher accommodation rates. The off-season runs from June to October. Rainfall is heavy from June to mid-November. There is the possibility of hurricanes between August and October.

Must-experience attractions include diving the Blue Hole at Lighthouse Reef, snorkeling at Ambergris Caye, and kayaking at Glover’s Reef Atoll.
