The Island Life - Belize
Plan Ahead for Paradise - 2023
Late summer through autumn and into December are great times to visit Belize. September offers a unique opportunity to experience some of Belize's favorite celebrations. In September, a beautiful display of culture abounds with two carnivals.
Belize honors a significant historical event on September 10. They celebrate St. George's Caye Day on this day, a holiday commemorating a pivotal naval battle. The Battle of St. George's Caye occurred off the coast of Belize between September 3 and September 10, 1798. During the 16th century, the Spanish tried to control the region of the Yucatan coast, which includes modern-day Belize. During the battle, the Baymen defeated the Spanish Navy. They couldn't settle due to a lack of natural resources and hostile Indian tribes. The first Europeans to settle were British sailors, who were either shipwrecked or with the title 'Pirate' on their resume. These Europeans, known as Baymen at the time, began to colonize Belize in the middle of the 17th century.
Then, on September 21, 2023, Belize will celebrate 42 years of independence. After centuries as a British colony, Belize became a fully sovereign nation on September 21, 1981, and is today a proud member of the British Commonwealth.
There are questions about the weather in late summer through the end of the year. This time of year typically "cools down" where temps hover more around 80°F. There are also periodic showers, but usually Belize is not host to long days of consecutive rain. This is a time of year with less crowds at excursion sites, and typically lower fares for flights. Paradise awaits your arrival in 2023.
We hope you can come away for pampering in paradise and a perspective that is as refreshing as our clear blue waters!
