Top Travel Photos and Videos of Belize for August 2016

Are you ready to Celebrate September? As we unite under the theme “Sovereign and Strong - Together as One,” the month promises to be filled with activities and events to celebrate including the Battle of St. George’s Caye Day, Carnival and of course, Belize’s Independence! Whether you’re vacationing in the charming, sandy peninsula of Placencia, the vibrant island of Ambergris Caye or the bustling “Old Capital” of Belize City, there’s sure to be an activity for the entire family to enjoy.

 

With all the expectations mounting for the celebratory month, you may have thought we forgot about August and our monthly Photo/Video blog. While the month was indeed a wet one, our team did manage to compile a list of impressive travel related posts on Instagram featuring Belize! From the thousands of travel photos and videos that were taken, we have chosen several that we believe truly highlight the Belize Experience. 

 

Without further a-do, here's our list of the Top Travel Photos and Videos of Belize for August 2016.

"Why don't you just come home? I mean, how many mountains and oceans can you see?" - my mother, on the phone yesterday, just before this aracari toucan flew head first into the window next to me, becoming a live representation of how I felt at that moment. We both shook it off, recovered, and kept on going. πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«. . . #vagabroads #overlanding #fulltimetravel #instatoucan #belize #birdsofbelize #instabird #toucan #nomadlife #panamerican #findyourwild #discovertheroad #discoverbelize #travelbelize #travelstoke #mytinyatlas #honeybadger #shakeitoff #lifeoftravel #adventurejournal #unbelizable #centralamerica #ontheroad #expeditionportal #sheisnotlost #sheexplores

Jokes aside, I landed in Belize this morning and already got to tick off one of my biggest travel bucket list items - flying over the Blue Hole! (Fingers crossed I'll get the chance to scuba dive there later this week!) Huge thanks to @TravelBelize and @FlyMayaBelize for the unforgettable experience!
