January is dry season with prolonged periods of sunshine, particularly in the north and central regions. A great time to travel which means the country will be busy, so we recommend planning in advance.



Similar to February with great weather and very little rain its one of the best months to travel throughout the region.



The dry season continues, with low humidity so another great month to explore all regions of Belize and relax on beautiful Caribbean beaches.



In April the weather in the Cayo District and on the Cayes remains predominantly dry, although the heat and humidity gradually increases. Easter is a busy time, so booking in advance is essential.



Very similar to April, although there are less visitors and there may be the occassional shower with the start of the wet season approaching.



The rains start however most days are usually short sharp showers in the afternoon and early evening. Perrsistent rainfall is rare. Mid-June is the start of lobster season and a great time to sample the dish along the country's coast in destinations like Ambergris Caye and Placencia.



Very similar to July, with a similar amount of rain combined with sunshine. Most destinations will be warm with a high level of humidity.



The height of the rainy season with high humidity, heavy rain and the risk of tropical storms and even hurricanes. These are particularly prevalent in the coastal regions.



Another wet month and not very enjoyable for travel with some remote roads flooded. Due to a low number of visitors at this time, some lodges and hotels will close for annual maintenance.



Rainy conditions continue with wet days, high humidity and generally not the ideal time to visit and enjoy Belize.



The wet season and humidity are easing off with drier days on the horizon. This is a good time to visit the interior and coast before tourist numbers increase in December.



A great time to travel to Belize with sunny, dry days although hotels over the Christmas & New Year break will often be booked for months in advance.
