If the last thing you're dreaming of is a White Christmas, we've got some good news for you. Since it straddles the Equator and kisses right up against the Caribbean Sea, it's like paradise in this Central American country all year long. That means you don't need to just forget about the possibility of slow. You can forget about the possibility of long sleeves altogether. Here's what you need to know before booking your winter trip to Belize.

The Climate

While there's some variance from one season to another, winter is actually one of the more pleasant seasons in Belize. The highs generally fall in the low 80s, while the daily lows rarely dip below the 70s. Even better, winter falls squarely in the middle of Belize's dry season. Rainfall is rare, but it's typically sporadic when it does appear and only helps make the temperature more pleasant.

Health and Safety

There's no place that's completely safe from crime, and visitors will always be a target during tourist season — but the risk is what to expect on the typical vacation. Lock up your valuables, avoid flashing large amounts of cash, and stay away from untrustworthy neighborhoods in major urban hubs like Belize City. Fortunately, Belize's latest policies to combat COVID-19 can keep you safe from both crime and the risk of infection. The Tourism Safety Corridor consists solely of tourism-related businesses that meet the "Tourism Gold Standard". It's a set of certifications that allow you to do what you want safely, and it extends all the way over the country — including into must-see frontier life that in the Cayo District.

The Crowds

You aren't the first person to consider fleeing to Belize for the winter, but that doesn't mean that you need to be stuffed in with crowds of tourists. The most obvious advice is to stay away from the most crowded areas. Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker, and Placencia Peninsula are all popular for a reason, but there are plenty of hidden gems throughout the country as well. The Cayo District stands apart as one. As a former seat of power for Maya royalty, it's a wild wonderland that's littered with activities and ruins.

The Finances

The best way to save money while traveling is to come during the off-season, but Belize is an inexpensive country even when the snowbirds come flocking — and great deals and packages can usually be found throughout the year. Cahal Pech Village Resort represents a critical gateway between the coast and the Cayo District, and we offer a variety of seasonal specials and packages that let you create a bespoke but affordable itinerary for your trip.
