Belize weather doesn’t follow the same four-season pattern as in North America. Instead, the temperature is always warm, and what changes is the amount of rainfall. July is indeed part of the “green” season when there is a moderate increase in the amount of precipitation, but it isn’t like a monsoon season where it rains all day and night. Instead, the rain in July mostly falls during the overnight hours or in brief showers during the afternoon, leaving visitors plenty of time to enjoy outdoor activities.
In fact, July is the perfect time to enjoy outdoor activities like swimming, working on your tan, snorkeling, scuba diving, sea kayaking, stand-up paddling, fishing, and windsurfing. And that’s just on the reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is renowned for its stunning beauty and gorgeous beaches. July is also the perfect time to enjoy a cold beer or rum cocktail while you gorge on fresh-caught seafood.
On the mainland, July ideal for doing fun things like exploring a sacred cave to see artifacts and human remains left behind by the ancient Maya people, canoeing down a pristine jungle river, doing some bird watching, going horseback riding in a national park, sailing through the rainforest canopy on a zip line, or going cave tubing, a uniquely Belizean activity where you navigate subterranean rivers using an inflatable inner tube.
July is also a great month to enjoy some Belize travel because it falls during the “off season” where there’s a lot less crowding and resorts, hotels, and tour operators offer discounts. And airlines often run great promotions during July, too.
And one of the best parts about Belize vacations in July is that you can attend some really fun celebrations like Taste of Belize, a popular culinary and bartending competition that pits the best chefs and mixologists in the country against one another to create the most amazing and innovative main dishes, desserts, and cocktails.
