Belize has some of the best weather found anywhere on the planet. Year-round warm temperatures combine with gorgeous sunny skies and cool ocean breezes at night. Winter is simply a date on the calendar as temperatures almost never drop below 70 degrees Fahrenheit and snow is unheard of except for at high mountain altitudes.
With such lovely weather, it is no surprise that spending time in Belize is so enjoyable. Below are nine weather-related reasons to love Belize:
1 – Ideal Temperatures
The mean average annual temperature in Belize is 79 degrees Fahreinheit, about the most perfect temperature for any kind of activity. Whether you’re interested in sailing, bird watching, hiking, snorkeling, or just relaxing on the beach, the weather is nearly always perfect in Belize.
2 – Winter in Belize
When snow and ice pound North America, Belize enjoys long sunny days and plenty of delicious sunshine. Visitors love to celebrate Christmas and New Years in Belize due to the delightfully warm temperatures and refreshingly cool nights.
3 – Relaxing During the Rainy Season
The rainy season in Belize kicks off in mid-June but rain is far different than found in more temperature latitudes. Even during the heart of the rainy season, most showers are brief, with a quick spell of rain in the early morning followed by thunderstorms in the evening, with plenty of sunshine in between.
Summers in other parts of the world can be unbearably hot but May and early June in Belize feature nearly perfect weather, with long, hot sunny days that never scorch. Temperatures in Belize during summer hover around the high 80s Fahreinheit, warm enough to comfortably enjoy outdoor activities without the oppressive heat often found in summer in the United States.
5 – Working on Your Tan
Located close to the equator, Belize is blessed by lots of strong sunshine, the perfect antidote for cold winters or long spells spent indoors. A T-shirt and shorts are all you’ll need in Belize, giving you plenty of opportunity to soak in the sunshine and work on your tan.
6 – Dressing Comfortably
Belize has a relaxed, easygoing culture, so there’s no need to dress up. T-shirts, sandals, and shorts are standard wardrobe in Belize. Throw in a swimsuit and a light sweater and you’ll be ready to travel in comfort throughout Belize.
7 – Swimming, Diving and Snorkeling
Warm temperatures year-round mean that the water of the Caribbean Sea and the many lagoons and inland rivers in Belize are warm enough to enjoy at any time of the year. Whether you’re interested in a quick dip in the ocean or want to snorkel and scuba dive some of the many gorgeous locations in and around the Belize Barrier Reef, the water is always the perfect temperature.
8 – Cool Breezes
Many countries in Central America enjoy hot temperatures during the day but this can sometimes build to humid extremes. Belize is blessed with regular refreshing breezes coming off of the Caribbean Sea, cleansing and cooling the air during the night. During some parts of the rainy season, Belize is subject to air currents that come down from cooler regions of Mexico that also cool and refresh the air.
9 – Fishing
Changes in the weather bring huge schools of migrating fish to Belize, making it one of the best places in the world to catch prize trophies like marlin, sailfish, grouper, and snapper.
