Belize offers a wealth of experiences throughout its distinctive seasons. This enchanting destination, renowned for its diverse ecosystems, ancient Maya ruins, and pristine beaches, exhibits diverse weather patterns and climatic conditions that shape the unique rhythm of life and tourism.
Belize experiences two primary seasons: the green and dry seasons. Each season provides its own set of adventures, vistas, and experiences, making every visit to Belize a unique opportunity to explore and experience the country’s bountiful beauty.
Dry Season (November to May)
The dry season in Belize, stretching from late November to May, is also considered the high tourist season. Weather during this time is primarily warm and sunny, with average temperatures ranging from 70°F to 80°F (21°C to 27°C).
This period is ideal for travelers looking to immerse themselves in Belize’s abundant outdoor activities. The Caribbean Sea, glittering under the bright sun, offers excellent conditions for snorkeling and scuba diving around the Great Blue Hole and the Barrier Reef – the second largest in the world.
On the mainland, the dry conditions are perfect for hiking through the jungle, exploring ancient Maya ruins such as Cahal Pech, Caracol, and Xunantunich. Adventure seekers can enjoy cave tubing in the Nohoch Che’en Caves Branch Archaeological Reserve or zip-lining through the lush canopies.
This season is also the perfect time to visit the intriguing Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) Cave, where the water levels are lower, making it safer to traverse the cave’s subterranean passages.
Green Season (June to October)
Beginning in June and extending to October, the green season in Belize is characterized by intense, brief showers primarily in the afternoons and cooler temperatures, particularly at night. This is also the time when the vibrant, lush greenery of the country truly blossoms.
Though considered the ‘off-peak’ tourist season, this time of the year is still bursting with activities. Travelers can marvel at the verdant rainforests, home to a plethora of unique species, such as the Baird’s tapir and the jaguar. Bird watchers would relish the opportunity to spot over 500 species of birds.
Don’t miss out on the cultural festivities too, like the September Celebrations, which include Independence Day and the Battle of St. George’s Caye Day.
