Belize Travel Guide


Few places can match Belize's natural beauty. The turquoise and coral hues found along the barrier reef contrast with the staggered Mayan ruins that hide beneath the lush green foliage of the country's thick rainforests.

When to Visit Belize

The best time to visit Belize is from late November to mid-April, during the country's dry season.

You'll probably want to pass on visiting during April and May, when humidity mists the tropical landscape and temps reach triple digits. Expect showers from June to mid-November and strong winds. If you would rather beat the rush of tourists and you don't mind packing an umbrella, come during the rainy season in September and October.

Getting Around Belize

The best ways to get around Belize are by car, water taxi, and plane. Taxis and rental cars are the most hassle-free mode of transportation around Belize City. Cabs and cars are also the easiest way to get to and from Belize City's Municipal Airport (TZA) or Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport (PGIA), which are both located approximately one mile from central Belize City. Water taxis are another good mode of transportation as they provide access to Belize's numerous cays. Hopper planes operating out of Belize City Municipal Airport (TZA) also transport passengers to popular islands like Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker. Attractions on the mainland are relatively spread out, but Belize itself is a compact country. Belize is equipped with commuter buses that transport passengers to popular things to do. However, these buses are typically run-down and routes can be difficult to navigate.
