Why Visit Belize in May

Why Visit Belize in May | The Best Times to Visit Belize

May is a great month to visit Belize

May is a great month to visit Belize because numerous resorts, hotels, and tour companies offer huge discounts on accommodations, tours, and all inclusive vacation packages making it affordable for travelers to enjoy an exquisite and amazing Belize vacation.

The weather is also fantastic in May and there are endless activities that you can partake in such as scuba diving with whale sharks, exploring the Actun Tunichil Muknal Cave, bird watching in the rainforest, and taking a dip at Belize’s top waterfalls like Big Rock and Rio on Pools in the Mountain Pine Ridge.

Another big reason to visit Belize in May is that there are fewer tourists in the country and thus you can enjoy all of the top attractions thoroughly and without rushing.

Belize Events and Festivals in May

There are a number of top events and festivals that you cannot afford to miss if you visit in May.  Two of these popular events are the Cashew and the Chocolate Festivals.

The Cashew Festival

The Annual Cashew Festival highlights the many products and by-products of the cashew tree along with live music, games, Caribbean dishes, and even cashew wine. The event is held in Crooked Tree Village in Northern Belize.

Toledo Cacoa Festival

The Chocolate Festival of Belize is a three-day celebration of chocolate in the Toledo District and is held every Commonwealth Day Holiday Weekend (late May). The event was designed to raise awareness of the Toledo District as a responsible tourism destination, and this year, it is scheduled from May 19 -21st  2017.

Other celebrations that take place in May are Mother’s Day and Commonwealth or Sovereign’s Day.
