If you're in a group seeking adventure, the district of Cayo, packed with outdoor activities like caving, hiking, and river rafting, presents an ideal choice.

When to Visit

Belize's peak season is from December to April, which coincides with the dry season, offering warm, pleasant weather ideal for snorkelling and exploring Mayan ruins. Though this period attracts more tourists, it also ensures maximum access to all activities and potential adventures.

On the other hand, the months of May to September, though considered the rainy season, offer cheaper rates and fewer crowds, and with rainfall usually limited to short bursts during the day, it might be an excellent opportunity for budget-conscious travellers. Despite traditionally being the off-peak period, nature's bounty isn't sealed off - Belize's wildlife, lush greenery and warm Caribbean charm remain constant throughout the year.
