Many people enjoy escaping to Belize during the winter months to enjoy the warm sunshine and ocean breezes. It really is no secret that Belize is a fantastic travel destination and more tourists are flocking to this hidden gem every year. But, did you know that summer is also a wonderful time to visit? Temperatures in Belize are comparable or even more mild than many places in the U.S. during the summer months, and ocean breezes and the shade of coconut trees offer much more relief than you are likely to find in your hometown – plus you will have the luxury of no responsibilities while taking it all in. Read on for our top 5 perks to visiting Belize this summer!
- It's Grand Slam Fishing Season! Fishing here is excellent year-round, but the best times to catch the "Big Three" of tarpon, bonefish, and permit is in June, July, and August. When you catch all three of these fish, it's known as the "Grand Slam", which is how the fishing season got its name!We are fortunate to be located adjacent to the flats, close to the reef, and a short ride from the Belize River, so guests can enjoy a variety of fishing on their Caribbean vacation.
- While there isn't a specific time of year that is best for scuba diving, many divers prefer the calmer waters of the Belizean summer. The water is pleasantly warm during the summer at 85°F, and the sea breeze tempers the heat a bit during this time.
- Temperatures in Belize are comparable to many places in the U.S. during the summer months, and ocean breezes and the shade of coconut trees offer relief.
- While summer does mark the beginning of "rainy season", don't be alarmed! This season applies mostly to the mainland (the rain forest needs its rain to thrive after all!). Rain showers are typically brief and intermittent at the island, allowing you plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine!
During the summer months, Belize has less visitors which allows you the opportunity to have more privacy with fewer people while you explore mainland excursions and attractions such as the Maya Ruins. And you'll find that going through customs & immigration is much faster – very second gained in paradise is a win!
