Temperatures in Belize

A bit of knowledge regarding the weather patterns in Belize will help you to plan how you want to spend your vacation days. 

In Belize, it is not the temperature that visitors should be concerned with, but the humidity.  High humidity can make a temperature of 75 degrees Fahrenheit feel like 80.  If you plan to spend a day outside participating in physical activity, make sure to check the weather report.  This will allow you to plan if you need to bring extra water, or come as a reminder not to push yourself too hard.

Consider the chart below when planning your daily activities.  Each column, from early morning until early evening shows the average temperature during that time of day in its corresponding month.  In the last column you will find the overall daily average of each month.  Early morning temperatures are the coolest of the day, making mornings the perfect time to plan a hike, walking tour, or a round of golf.  Early to late afternoon is when the high heat will have you running for the pool or beach.
