Simone Biles & Her BF Just Vacationed In Belize & Now We Have To Go, Too

You did it, sis. You made it to Q4 of the year, securing your bag without sacrificing your sanity, and if nobody told you today, I'm proud of you, damn it. As we gear up to prepare for the new year—setting our intentions, charting out our goals and sh*t—one date you can't forget to put on your calendar is the baecation of your dreams, and Simone Biles says you better Belize it.

Last month, the professional gymnast broke yet another world record by winning her 21st world championship medal but recently, sis chose to press pause on the hustle in lieu of a little R&R. After one helluva year, Simone is trading in her leotard for some quality time with bae in Belize and now we want to go, too.

Serving up some scrumdiddlyumptious Instagram images of her and bae, Stacey Ervin Jr., living their best lives, Simone proved that her holiday getaway was the baecation on the beach we didn't know we needed.

In the past, Simone noted that the Central American country is one of her favorite travel destinations, so it's not surprising that Simone and the fam chose to spend Thanksgiving there this year. In a previous interview, she explained:

"Belize, for me, is all about the beach. My family and I spend most of our days hanging out by the water, but I don't like to lie out and relax. I go swimming, which I love because the water is so beautiful and so clear that you can see all the fish underneath."

Whether it be with the fam, your girls, or bae, Belize is the travel destination you need to book a flight to ASAP. From a jungle safari to scuba diving in a sink hole, here's everything you have to do while you're there:

Get Your Self-Care On At The Secret Beach 

Many travel sites suggest skipping Belize City and heading straight on over to Caye Caulkner or Ambergris Caye, where'll you'll find the Secret Beach to get massages, drinks, or smoke hookah near the water.

Go Scuba Diving In The Great Blue Hole

Totaling at about 318 miles wide and 124 miles deep, the Great Blue Hole is nothing to play with. It was once ranked as number one on Discovery Channel's list of "10 Most Amazing Places On Earth", making this a perfect attraction for travelistas and thrill-seekers alike. The famous scuba diving attraction is actually a sink hole formed thousands of years ago by a limestone cave.

Unleash Your Wild Side At The Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary

Established to help local wildlife like endangered jaguars, Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary gives travelers an opportunity to take a day hike in the jungle and have waterfall and wildlife encounters that will make your trip unforgettable.

 Explore The Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave

The Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave can be found near the Mayan Mountains and was once believed to be a sacred place that was once known as the "place of fear", but don't let that scare you away from this dope attraction.

Gasp At The Beauty Of The Xunantunich Maya Ruins

​Also one of Belize's most popular tourist sites, the Xunantunich Mayan Ruins are about 70 miles from Belize City and require taking a ride on a hand-cranked ferry to have a chance to marvel at their beauty.
