When to go
The country’s climate is subtropical, with temperatures warm throughout the year, generally 20–27°C from January to May (the dry season) and 22–32°C from June to December (the wet season). The best time to visit Belize is usually between January and March, when it’s not (quite) as hot or humid. That said, these months are also Belize’s peak tourist season, and prices tend to be higher.
