Summer In Belize & Top Summer Picks


‘Summer Season’ runs from June through October, and is an awesome time to visit Belize!  There are less tourists, prices are lower, and the pace of life is slow and easy.   The Caribbean Sea and large tracts of wilderness provide a cooling effect, and the average year round temperature remains fairly steady at around 84° F (29°C).

Summer offers the chance to discover the mainland of Belize and experience the culture of its people. Climb to the top of ancient Mayan ruins, descend deep to explore the underground caves that were sacred in their religions, or fly through the rainforest canopy on a zip-line. 
Summer is also great time to relax on expansive beaches and explore the seaside villages of Hopkins and Placencia.  Why not stay at a local beach resort for three to four nights and then head inland?

Stay Cool in the Jungle
Vacation in the rainforest, and enjoy the refreshing, cooler climate that the jungle canopy provides.  Have a relaxing swim in the emerald pools at the top of a breathtaking waterfall.

Unlimited Adventure
Whether it’s a zip-lining in the tree tops, hiking in Mayflower Bocawina National Park, birding in the Worlds only Jaguar Preserve , or visiting ancient Mayan ruins, summer in Belize offers something for everyone – from families and retirees to adventurers of any age.
