Traveling to Belize in the low season is the best time to immerse yourself in entertaining performances, tasty cuisines, vivid artistry, and cultural celebrations. The low season is from May to October, during the country’s rainy season. A bit of rain won’t stop the thrill of anticipating your next adventure when in Belize. It is mostly blue skies, radiant sunlight, and swaying trees for a great time to do fun-filled adventures! This time of the year is known for numerous energetic activities, lively musical festivities, spirited locals, and vibrant wildlife.
Festivals Galore! There is something to do every weekend. From tasting traditionally made Maya chocolate at the Chocolate Festival in May, listening to the melodic marimba at Benque Fiesta, to eating a variety of lobster dishes in Caye Caulker, Placencia, or San Pedro in July. Continue the fun in La Isla Bonita by dancing as an ULTRA VIP at the first-ever Belize International Music and Food Festival or watching the adrenaline of fisherpersons at Grand Caribe’s Annual Deep Sea Classic Fishing Tournament.
Patriotic and Proud. Experience Belize at the height of its celebrations in September. Move your body till the break of dawn covered in colorful clay, paint, or chocolate, along with excited locals. Later on, get ready to fete at the Carnival Road march with swaying feathers, dazzling sequins, and vibrant costumes. Line the streets to watch the St. George’s Caye Day parade or watch the glistening fireworks light up the sky as the bold Belize flag flies to bring in Independence Day. Festivities in the low season are the ones you don’t want to miss for an authentic interaction with Belize’s friendly people.
Save with Deals. If you’re planning on a budget, the low season is the perfect time to explore Belize! Accommodation deals are the most prevalent reason for staying between May and October. Properties offer jaw-dropping discounts on their rooms and tours or packages with complimentary meals. Bring your family to awe over ancient Maya cities, snorkel with luminescent fishes, or visit the renowned Belize Zoo!
Virtually Crowd-Free. The low season allows you to have the most authentic experience in Belize. No need to worry about massive crowds at popular attractions and activities. So strike a pose at the Belize sign, at the steps of Lamanai, or on the seashore in Hopkins for the perfect photo-op!
