The Overall Climate

of Belize can be described as sub-tropical.  The mean annual humidity is 83% but many days the humidity is masked by the cooling sea breezes.

Temperatures in Belize range from 50ºF to 95ºF with an annual mean of 79ºF.  November to January are traditionally the coolest months, with a 75ºF average and May to September is the warmest at about 81ºF average.

There are definite wet and dry seasons.  The onset of the dry season varies widely from year to year, but once the onset of the dry season commences, the actual amount of rain falling during the ”dry” is a predictable amount.  This does not mean that it will be like that the rest of the year.  As a general rule, the higher the average rainfall, the greater are the departures from the norm.  The number of rainy days varies considerably from place to place.

The most cost effective way to Belize is from Mexico

Taking the bus from Cancun, Mexico to Belize

ADO Bus Line, Mexico’s largest bus carrier, has just started direct bus service from the Cancun airport to Belize City. The trip costs around $90 RT and overnight schedules are available to allow travelers the convenience of not having to take an extra day to make the connection between Belize City and their flights in and out of Cancun. The bus trip is 8 hours and passengers ride in first class buses, much nicer than US or British bus services
