It’s already March, so if you’ve been thinking about where to go this summer, the time to start planning is now! Summertime is the perfect season to visit Belize as the weather is perfect, airlines are offering great prices on tickets, and many hotels and resorts are offering discounts.

If you’ve ever considered visiting Belize, here are five amazing reasons you should definitely come visit this summer:

Lobsterfest

Lobster is the world’s most popular crustacean, and there’s no better place to enjoy lobster than in Belize. Beginning in June when the lobster fishing season opens, coastal towns and islands in Belize celebrate by holding multi-day Lobsterfests. Along with plenty of delicious and creative lobster dishes, visitors can also enjoy live music, dancing, and fun lobster-themed games.

The Weather

In a nutshell, the weather in Belize during the summer is just about perfect. Because Belize experiences year-round sunshine and warm temperatures, the “high season” for tourism is during the winter. This makes visiting Belize in the summer a choice for budget travelers.

Throughout the summer, the weather in Belize is warm and sunny without being too hot. It’s also the perfect time to enjoy swimming in the Caribbean or enjoying a quick dip in the pool at the base of a waterfall.

The People of Belize

Many people come to Belize for the incredible nature, but the people of Belize have plenty to offer as well. Home to half a dozen ethnic and cultural groups, Belize is world-famous for its hospitality, warmth, and genuine friendliness.

Scuba Diving or Snorkeling

The Belize Barrier Reef is the second-largest in the world and the perfect place to enjoy scuba diving and snorkeling. Gorgeous tropical islands, sandy atolls, an incredible abundance of marine life, and the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean are why Belize is a mecca for scuba divers and snorkelers.

Adventure Tours

Exploring the great outdoors is one of Belize’s greatest attractions. Fun adventure tour options include exploring an ancient Maya city, bird watching (more than 500 species in the country!), hiking through a national park, and sailing through the rainforest canopy along a series of zip lines.

If you’re coming to Belize this summer, be sure to rent your vehicle from Tour Belize Auto Rental. When you’re behind the wheel of your own vehicle, you can explore Belize at your own pace and enjoy the sights in this fantastically beautiful country.
