Attractions which once enticed visitors to popular Caribbean islands are now luring them to Belize – the second smallest country in Central America and the only English-speaking of the seven. Framed by the Caribbean Sea at its East, Guatemala at its South as well as West, and Mexico at its North, Belize treats its visitors to azure waters and verdant landscapes – all complimented by an enviable clime.
With an average yearly temperature of 84°F (29°C), Belize’s tropical climate is one of the country’s main attractions. Travellers seeking this weather will not be disappointed as temperatures remain constant throughout the year since the country has two, rather than four, seasons – dry and wet.
The dry season which falls between February and May experiences less rainfall than the remainder of the year, although if it does, then it’s usually mild and short-lived. On the other hand, the wet season – June through December – experiences frequent rainfall which often occur during the months of June and early July with a succeeding dry spell in late July or August known as the “little dry.” Even though the wet season coincides with the hurricane season the country doesn’t usually attract major tropical storms; in the event it does, its evacuation and safety procedures have proven effective time and time again. Needless to say, once vacationers are aware of the highs and lows, they can thoroughly enjoy the country’s attractions year round!
