If you are heading to Belize in early March, your trip coincides with Baron Bliss Day which has developed into a national festival. So if you are going to be in the neighborhood, why not plan to spend an extra day or two taking in BBD!
In recent years the festivities have included a multi-day canoe race, the La Ruta Maya Belize River Challenge. The route runs west to east along the Macal and Belize Rivers, once the only link between beautiful San Ignacio, in the foothills of the Maya Mountains, and the bustling port of Belize City. This is a race for everyone (not just professional racers)!
The canoes will leave San Ignacio on March 8 and arrive in Belize City on March 11. The teams, which race for station prizes along the way, battle for the major cash prizes awarded at the end of the race.
