Belize Climate: Incredibly Diverse and Tropical

Belize is a small Central American nation located not far from the equator with a subtropical climate. With a wide variety of microclimates and trade winds, the weather in Belize is one of the most pleasant found anywhere on the planet.

Belize runs from 15 degrees and 18 degrees north of the equator in a mostly north-south orientation with 176 miles of coastline fronting the Caribbean Sea. The weather in Belize is universally warm. With just two seasons, often referred to as the dry and the green (rainy) seasons, there is no true winter. The dry season which runs from approximately mid-November to mid-April is characterized by bright sunny days and daytime highs that rarely exceed 85 F (29 C) and nights that are usually around 72 F (22 C).

The green season runs from approximately mid-April to the first part of November and is slightly hotter but temperatures almost never exceed 89 F (32 C) and lows in the mid to upper 70s at night (24 C). The green season sees more precipitation but most of this comes during the night and early morning, leaving the rest of the day bright and sunny. Humidity levels can be higher during the green season but trade winds keep the air nice and cool.

With lovely weather and more than 300 sunny days a year, the climate in Belize is definitely one of the many reasons why retirees and vacationers consider this tiny nation a true paradise.
