7. Go to the St. George’s Caye Day celebrations (10th of September)

St George’s Caye Day celebrates a battle where the English fought back the Spaniards in 1798—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. George’s Caye Day ceremony at Memorial (formerly BTL) Park, make sure to catch the citizens’ parade, and then stick around for the block party back at the park.
