Belize Weather Information

Visitors love Belize primarily thanks to its wonderful tropical climate, with average daytime highs around 84° F (29°C) and cool breezes at night. The heat rarely gets too oppressive as refreshing sea breezes and overland air currents bring relief from more temperate latitudes. Even during the coolest months of winter, nighttime lows rarely fall below 60°F (16°C), while during the summer the temperatures rarely exceed 86°F (30°C), making the year-round climate nearly perfect.

As Belize lies near the equator, the country has just two seasons – the dry season and the wet season. The dry season runs between February and May, with weeks of unbroken sunshine and delightfully warm daytime temperatures. June through December form the wet season, with sometimes daily storms of heavy rain coming in the later afternoon, cooling and refreshing the air. In the last weeks of July and the month of August, the rains let up for a spell in a mini-season known locally as “the little dry”.

No matter when you come to Belize, the weather is generally mild and enjoyable, making it one of the most pleasant countries to visit in the world.
