Where to go when - our guide to Belize

The weather in Belize is wide and varied

Compact and bijoux, English-speaking Belize is simultaneously both a lively and laid-back place to visit. The best weather is generally from Dec-May when it is mostly dry with temperatures of around 30°C. In the Cayo district and on the Cayes you can expect warm sunny days while the tropical rainforest areas are hot and sultry all year. June- November is the rainy season but until early August rain falls mostly in the afternoon or evening meaning that you can still travel fairly comfortably. As the season progresses humidity increases and there is a low risk of tropical storms. For wildlife- watching you can visit year round but to snorkel with whale-sharks in Placencia the best time is Apr-May, while turtle-viewing takes place in May-Oct. If lobster is your thing then visiting during lobster season in June and July is a must, and for chocolate lovers Belize’s annual Chocolate Festival takes place in Punta Gorda in May. In Feb / Mar Belize comes alive for Carnival with vibrant celebrations throughout the country but particularly in San Pedro. Similarly Belize Independence Day is celebrated with gusto on 21 September with parades, processions and parties.
