Belize

When to go to Belize

Belize’s dry season runs from January through to May and the rainy season lasts from June to early December. However as a tropical country it can rain here at any time and this usually comes in a short (very sharp) downpour interspersed with plenty of sunshine. The only time of year that we don’t recommend a visit is from September to October when the rain can be very heavy and persistent.

January

This is the beginning of the dry season so the rain will decrease as the month progresses. There should be lots of sunshine so this is a great time to visit. It is not too hot and there is usually a cooling breeze.

February

A great time to visit with lots of sunshine and little rain.

March

A great time to visit with lots of sunshine and little rain.

April

A great time to visit with lots of sunshine. There may be some rain but this will usually be a brief shower that will just cool you off.

May

A great time to visit with lots of sunshine. There may be some rain but this will usually be a brief shower that will just cool you off.

June

This is the end of the dry season and rainfall increases as the month progresses. However, there should still be plenty of sunshine and this is a good time to travel.

July

This is now the rainy season and you should expect some showers during your stay and there can be spectacular thunderstorms at night. However, this is still a popular time to travel and there will also be plenty of sunshine.

August

This is the end of the wet season and by the Christmas holidays in mid to late December there should be lots of sunshine and not much rain. This is a great time to visit. It is not too hot and there is usually a cooling breeze.
