Best Time to Visit Belize

Is there really a best time to visit Belize? Anytime is a good time to visit, but it really does depend on what your interests are to determine the best time for you. Are you more interested in water sports, festivals, peak tourist time or weather?

Belize Water Sports
The warm Caribbean water welcomes visitors throughout the year. However, the water tends to be slightly calmer in the summer months. For diving this can be a factor or if you prefer to dive with the Whale Sharks, they are only available from March to June. Fishing is also excellent year round, especially for tarpon, bone, and permit.

Belize Festivals
Belizeans love festivals and celebrations. The favorite for locals and tourists has to be the Lobster Festival held in Caye Caulker, Placencia, and San Pedro. The annual festival is held right after the beginning of lobster season in mid-June. San Pedro, the only town on Ambergris Caye, hosts the annual International Costa Maya Festival with a full week of parties and beauty pageants. In September, Belizeans celebrate St. George’s Caye Day, Carnival, and Independence Day.

Belize Tourist Season
The high peak for tourism is November to May, which also coincides with Belize’s dry season. It’s also when many Canadians and Americans want to escape harsh winters and seek the warm, mild climate Belize offers. The less traveled times to Belize occur from June to October when tourists can catch a break in resort prices. Many will drop their room rates as much as 30 to 50 percent.

Belize Weather
The two seasons in Belize are the dry season and the rainy season. Winter months tend to offer a dryer climate while summer months tend to be a bit rainier. It’s obviously much easier to plan outdoor events during the dry season, which is another reason the winter months are so popular. Who wants to plan a vacation with outdoor activities and not be able to enjoy them? The good news is that even in the rainy times, it usually means showers won’t last very long.

When planning your trip, Roam Belize will be happy to assist you in picking you up and transferring you anywhere in Belize. Their transfers are very affordable and they are extremely reliable.
