Belize in August

Belize in August

August is a Great Month to Visit Belize

Unlike the scorching temperatures found in most of the United States, August in Belize is filled with balmy weather and lots of sunshine. With fewer crowds and lots of advantageous discounts on tours and lodging, August is a great month to come and visit this gem of a country located on the shores of the Caribbean Sea immediately south of Mexico.

Top things to see and do in Belize in August:

International Costa Maya Festival in Ambergris Caye Belize

The International Costa Maya Festival

– What began as a modest celebration of Maya culture in Central America has blossomed into one of Belize’s most loved festivals. Beginning with a beauty pageant and continuing with lots of live music, food, dancing, and cultural displays, this three-day party in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye is not to be missed.

atm cave belize

Visit the ATM Cave in Belize

– Swim across a crystal clear pool of spring-fed water to enter the Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) cave system. Going on for miles into the inky depths, ATM was used by ancient Maya priests to conduct human sacrifices during some of the most turbulent years of their empire. Lying undisturbed for more than 1,000 years, the artifacts and religious items left behind in the cave make this one of the most important historic sites in the country.

Hol Chan Marine Reserve

Snorkel Hol Chan Marine Reserve

Thanks to a natural cut in the Belize Barrier Reef just a few miles offshore from Ambergris Caye, marine life flourishes in the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. An ideal spot for scuba diving and snorkeling, the protected waters of the reserve at home to sea turtles, anemones, rays, sharks, and hundreds of species of fish.

xunantunich

Visit the Grand Tomb at Xunantunich

– One of the largest Maya sites ever discovered in Belize, Xunantunich has been continually excavated by archeologists for more than 100 years. In 2016, a local team discovered a tomb of a Maya ruler underneath the main temple in Xunantunich, one of the biggest tombs ever discovered in Belize.

Cahal-Pech-Village-Resort-1024x680

Stay at a top Belize Jungle Resort

With fewer crowds, August is the perfect time to take advantage of off-season rates and stay in a premium luxury resort. Enjoy breathtakingly beautiful beachfront villas and modern comfort in resorts like Victoria House, and Portofino in Ambergris Caye, Yok Ha Island (just eight miles offshore from Dangriga), Chabil Mar and The Placencia Hotel and Casino on the Placencia Peninsula, Black Orchid Resort in the Belize District, and Cahal Pech Village Resort and Caves Branch Jungle Lodge in the Cayo District.

Weather in Belize in August

August lies in the middle of the green season in Belize, a time of overnight showers and brief bouts of morning precipitation followed by long sunny days. Expect daytime highs around 89 F (31 C) and nighttime lows around 78 F (25 C) with plenty of refreshing offshore breezes.

August is a Great Time to Visit Belize!

Just a few hours’ flying time from many major cities in the United States, Belize is a great place to spend an August vacation.
