A dream vacation in Belize is awaiting you.

The Weather

Belize is truly a tropical paradise, with perfect weather nearly all year round. Temperatures fluctuate slightly from month to month, but most days are warm and sunny. These are often accompanied with cool, refreshing breezes at night.  In Belize you will enjoy two main weather seasons, the wet and dry.  The dry season is typically from December to May. However, this period is also the time when the temperatures dip a bit and some rain may also occur with the cold fronts.  Subsequently, the wet season is also considered great sunny weather, typically with high temperatures and occasional rains.

The Rainforest

Often described as the “planet’s lungs,” the rain-forest of Belize is home to a wide variety of exotic flora and fauna. In fact, this natural ecosystem is the best place for bird watching.  As many as 587 birds have been recorded in Belize. In addition to birding, travelers can explore medicinal trails.  The ancient Mayan shamans used medicinal plants gathered from the rain-forest to heal people.
