Belize in October: Where to Go and What to Do
Visit Belize in October
The leaves might be turning and the weather getting chilly in North America during the month of October, but there’s plenty of sunshine, warmth, and adventures to be had in Belize during October. The weather does actually cool down in Belize during October, but that’s a good thing! The weather will be perfect for sailing, snorkeling, swimming, or enjoying one of the many festivals and fun events that take place in October.
Below are some of the top things to see and do in Belize in October:
Halloween is an imported holiday from the United States, but bars and other entertainment venues go all out for this ghoulish holiday. Locals and visitors alike get a chance to dress up and compete for prizes at one of the many Halloween parties.
Whether you’re wearing a sexy Halloween costume or simply want to take a dip in the Caribbean, the weather in October is great. And the best part is you’ll never have to worry about snow, ice, or freezing rain.
Belize places strict rules on fishing seasons, but October 1 is when locals can start bringing in delicious conch. There are lots of tasty conch dishes you can try in Belize during October including ceviche, fritters, and conch sandwiches.
Due to the beautiful unspoiled scenery and protected nature reserves in Belize, pretty much any time is a good time to see hundreds of species of exotic and colorful birds. But October is special because it is when avian species in North America like herons, spoonbills, and egrets head south to Belize to escape the cold.
Outstanding Deals on Airfare
October is officially classified as the “low season” in Belize, so airlines run specials and offer discounts on non-stop flights from the United States and Canada. There are now non-stop flights from major cities like Atlanta, Los Angeles, Newark, and Toronto at very affordable prices.
Deals on Lodging
Whether you want to stay in a tiny B&B on a remote island or a luxury resort on the mainland, October is a great time to take advantage of low season prices in Belize.
Escape the Crowds
You’ll never have to wait at a restaurant, museum, Maya ruin, or adventure tour when you visit Belize in October. Some places close for renovations and repairs during September, but just about everything in Belize is open and uncrowded in October.
You Won’t Miss the Game
In case you or someone you’re traveling with is a sports fan, do not worry! Belizean bars, hotels, and resorts all have American channels. You can enjoy a rum cocktail or beer as you watch the same live feed of the World Series and other games in English as your friends and family back home.
