Me and the beloved went on a dreamy vacation over the July 4th holiday. We chose Belize as the destination because we love the beach and doing outdoorsy activities.
Well, Nick loves doing outdoorsy things. Truth be told, I am just fine sipping rum punch on the beach with the book. But I digress…
We planned this trip back in January and each saved up for it. Whenever you’re planning a trip, I recommend pricing out everything beforehand (like we did for our San Diego trip!) and adding 20-30% so you have extra fun money!
We ended up spending $3,008.48. on this trip to Belize. Here is the breakdown:
Saving up for a trip like this is totally doable. If you give yourself six months to save, that's $500 per month. To reduce the temptation of spending your travel funds, keep your savings in a separate account. I recommend a high-yield savings account because the return is much higher than traditional accounts.

Here are some of the highlights and recommendations from our trip to Belize!
