7. Go to the St. Georgeโ€™s Caye Day celebrations (10th of September)

St George’s Caye Day celebrates a battle where the English fought back the Spaniards in 1798โ€”that’s why Belize speaks English, and not Spanish like its Central American neighbors. So brush off that hangover and get up early to go watch the St. Georgeโ€™s Caye Day ceremony at Memorial (formerly BTL) Park, make sure to catch the citizensโ€™ parade, and then stick around for the block party back at the park.
