Know Before You Go: Travel Tips for Your Visit to Belize January 3, 2023
Best Months to Visit
Belize enjoys a subtropical climate and balmy temperatures year-round, with average temps sitting around 84°F while the thermometer rarely dips below 60°F. There is no bad time to visit, but there are two very distinct seasons that every traveler should be aware of: The Dry Season and the Wet Season.
December through May is considered the dry season, and it’s also the peak season in Belize. Temperatures are a bit milder, and sunny days are the norm. You may experience cloudy days during this time, but rainfall is not typical.
The wet season spans from June through November, with high temperatures, humidity, and occasional storms as this is also hurricane season. Rain showers typically last for a few hours if there’s no storm. Visiting during this off-season can save you money and help to avoid crowds.
Entry & Exit Requirements
Most visitors do not need a visa to enter Belize. Passport holders from USA, Canada, UK, the European Union, Caribbean Community Member States, and Central American countries are exempt from visa requirements. Visitors can remain in Belize for up to 30 days without a visa.
As of July 12, 2022, travelers no longer need to show proof of vaccination, negative test results, or any other documentation regarding COVID-19.Note that Belize requires foreign visitors to pay a departure tax when leaving the country. Fees range between 20-55 USD, depending on where you’re departing from. Some airlines include this cost in your airfare, so read the fine print when booking your flights.
