No best travel period for Belize

Due to the tropical climate in Belize, it is always warm with a high humidity. Cooling off can be done I the mountains or on one of the islands, where there is a fresh sea breeze. The rainy season is from May to October. This does not mean that it will rain all day. There will be short and heavy tropical showers (usually at night), a nice side-effect is a pleasant cool-down.

Best time to travel to Belize when travelling with children

In terms of travel periods, it is highly recommended to visit Belize during our spring break or Christmas holiday. During the spring break it is not that busy from a tourist perspective. It is high season in Belize during our Christmas holiday. This means that it can be a bit busier in some places, resulting in the fact that you may have to start planning your trip earlier because of the availability of the hotels. A trip of (only) two weeks is perfectly fine for Belize, since it is a small country and the distances are relatively short. Would you like to make your trip longer? Combining Belize with a visit to Guatemala and/or Honduras is a perfect idea.
