If you want to escape from the noise that characterizes your day, a vacation to an overwater bungalow in Belize wouldn’t be out of place. The hype around Belize isn’t a fad. Apart from being home to the world’s beautiful overwater bungalows, its never-ending allure and, of course, the world’s largest Barrier Reef makes it the envy of tourists.

It also offers a diverse landscape where you can have an array of fun-filled activities, ranging from swimming in natural (saltwater) pools to taking bespoke adventures. Above all, it serves as a private haven that only welcomes a few guests at a time (mostly, the number ranges between 15 and 30). Imagine the kind of breathtaking silence you’d get from there!

One great thing about Belize overwater bungalows is that their suites and villas are raised so high that guests that don’t want to get wet can still have a thrilling experience staying in huts on the water Belize. Not even do they have to dip their toes in the water. Isn’t this interesting?

Best Time to Visit Belize

As seen above, the climate in Belize is tropical, owing to rainfall and humidity. Though the temperature varies from 71OF to 88OF throughout the year, it is usually hot between June and October and cooler from November to February. The hottest season of the year is between April and May.

During the hottest period, rains fall heavily, especially in late afternoons. However, in December and January, rains occur in trickles, though more prolonged. This means that it only gets sunny for a few hours, each day. The average temperature during this period stands at 73OF (that is, 23 degrees Celsius).

While the annual rainfall at the city amounts to 75 inches (that is, 1900 mm), the annual rainfall increases from 50 inches (1,270 mm) at Corozal to a whopping 175 inches (4,445 mm) at Punta Gorda, in the north and south, respectively.

If you would be visiting Belize water bungalows for hot-weather activities, such as visits to the beach, consider anything from early January to mid-April. However, the best time to visit Belize would be from mid-December to early March. At these periods, the weather is clear – with no rain – and perceived temperatures between 65OF and 80OF. Thus, you’d expect to have a more authentic experience of the city as well as see the locals in a more relaxed and natural state.

No matter what, you may want to avoid visiting Belize villas on water between July and November. This is because hurricanes (tropical cyclones) constitute a major threat during the periods. Also, thunderstorms usually start appearing in July which increases in October.
