When is the best time to visit Belize

when is the best time to visit belizeIs there really a best time to visit Belize? Anytime is a good time to visit.

Lucky you—you’ve got your pick of vacation time slots at your office and you don’t mind pulling the kids out of school if a travel adventure can teach them more than sitting in a classroom could ever do. In a sense, the world is your oyster, so figure out what’s important and what’s not—and get your vacation planning underway. We urge you to listen to rave reviews coming from people who have discovered the wonder that is Belize and who wouldn’t think of going elsewhere because the beauty, attractions, pricing and weather are idyllic year-round.

Come to Belize in Summer. It’s low season, so find fewer crowds, all-inclusive accommodation savings, plenty of festivals and attractions—after all, it’s summer year-round in Belize. Secure lodgings at an Ambergris Caye favorite like the SunBreeze Hotel  and let staff work their hospitality magic by suggesting land tours plus scuba and diving adventures, since the sea is particularly calm during summer months. Be on hand for Labour Day and Commonwealth Day festivities (May 1st and May 24th) and fill your days with visits to caves, Mayan ruins, jungles, rainforests and wildlife reserves. Pack a poncho to pop over clothes when green season showers turn the lush landscape into more splendor. What to pack for your summer visit? Anything that’s appropriate for a temperature range from 79- to 83-degrees F.

Visit Belize in the fall. Come fall, rains begin to dissipate, tourists have yet to overrun Belize, rates at the SunBreeze Hotel remain affordable and if you’re on a budget, this gateway season is an ideal time to vacation here. Autumn is for those who never met a party they didn’t want to attend, so come between September 10th and November 19th for high-profile festivals like St. George’s Caye Day (September 10), Belize’s Independence Day (September 21), Columbus Day (October 12) and Garifuna Settlement Day, a festive November 19th tribute to indigenous Belizeans. Fall in Belize is the time to explore the ocean’s treasures—to see what travel writers mean when they urge tourists to dive the Big Blue Hole, visit the Belize Barrier Reef and enjoy myraid land-based tours. If you leave right after Garifuna Settlement Day, you’ll miss the annual flood of tourists arriving at the SunBreeze for Thanksgiving!

Winter in Belize. It’s high season–but what a season it is if you book SunBreeze Hotel accommodations early enough to travel to Belize during the winter months! Celebrate Thanksgiving American-style at the hotel’s eatery or choose from gourmet restaurants on Ambergris Caye where turkey (native to Belize) and traditional side dishes are on menus. Bring the family for a Christmas, Chanukah, Boxing Day or Kwanzaa get-away or spend New Year’s Eve staring at star-filled skies on the beach while counting your blessings. Count on cool, dry temperatures at night and enough sun during the day to make friends and family back home wish they had agreed to join you on your trip. That said, if you can’t get enough crowds, schedule your Belize visit between December 15th and January 15th, where, as Prince says, you can party like it’s 1965 on Ambergris Caye!

Spring comes to Belize, and with it, glorious weather plus even more holiday celebrations. While Easter may land in March or April, traditional events simply follow the calendar, so come at this time and enjoy the longest single holiday in Belize that runs from Good Friday to Easter Monday. Because banks and government offices close, you’ll have your pick of entertainments that range from the International Cross Country Cycle Race to religious processions that wind through streets in many communities, plus street fairs featuring music you’ll hear only in Belize. This is the end of the “high season,” so while rates won’t be at their highest, there are discounts to be had if you book early enough–especially at the SunBreeze Hotel where savings, comfy rooms, lots of amenities and a staff eager to pamper you await your arrival year round.
