Here at Tranquility Bay Resort, we love Easter. In fact, we love any excuse to celebrate! In Belize, spending time with loved ones and celebrating are such important parts of everyday life. We want you to experience this for yourself if you choose to visit us for the Easter period, so we’re going to tell you about a few of the fun activities that we organize for our guests every year in order to have fun and celebrate it. We’re fortunate enough to be blessed with year-round pleasant weather in Belize, which means we’re always guaranteed glorious sunshine for throwing fun activities right here on our beach. The children love our festivities on the beach, and the adults enjoy partaking as well!
Let the races begin! Easter Celebrations at Tranquility Bay
Easter Sack Race
Perhaps one of our best known and hotly anticipated Easter activities is the sack race on the beach! On the soft white sand, teams will hop in a sack and race to the finish line in a bid to win one of our mystery prizes. In case you have no idea what a sack race is: It’s a traditional competitive race where participants must have their feet and legs inside a sack or pillowcase and hop towards the finish line. The first to get their whole body across the line is the winner.
We also organize a kayak race in the blue waters surrounding the Tranquility Bay Resort. Team will jump into the kayaks and race to either a finish point or to collect a floating prize on a buoy. Kayaks are also available to use for our guests at any other time during their stay with us, so there’s plenty of opportunities to practice a little for the race beforehand!
Lime and Spoon Race
A little switch up from the traditional ‘Egg and Spoon race’ (because we don’t really want to waste delicious eggs!) we also hold a lime and spoon race on the beach. The aim of the game is clear, you will need to balance your lime on a spoon and run to the finish line without dropping it. It may sound easy, but it’s certainly harder than it looks and requires some serious hand-eye coordination!
Easter Egg Hunt
No Easter celebrations would be complete without the all-important Easter egg hunt! We will hide Easter eggs around the resort and on the beach for the guests to find and enjoy. Participate or sit back and relax with a fruity cocktail as you watch others run around and have fun!
Win small mystery prizes
If you choose to join us in a little bit of friendly competition, you’ll be in for a chance to win one of our small mystery prizes! There’s plenty of prizes to go around and we aim to encourage the children to enjoy taking part rather than just focusing on winning.
Easter BBQ at Tranquility Bay Resort
We usually round off our Easter activities and competitions with a delicious traditional BBQ for everyone to tuck into! This usually includes a mixture of yummy marinated meats, grilled vegetables, and freshly caught seafood, all prepared by our talented chef. You’ll be able to take your pick from international foods to some of the more traditional local fares such as Caribbean jerk flavorings, rice and beans and more. And everyone can take part in our watermelon eating contest.
All in all, we just aim to have a wonderful fun day in the sun. Our guests thoroughly enjoy this time of year, and we hope that you will be able to join us this year too! For more information, don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of our friendly staff who will be more than happy to help with your inquiries.
It’s not too late to book an Easter stay with us this year, but hurry, the spots are nearly full!
