When Is the Best Time to Visit?

Thatch Caye offers relaxation on the beach, many non-motorized water sports, and local tours. So, what month suits your requirements?

  • Spring (March to May): Temperatures are between 84,2 F and 89,6 F (29°C - 32°C). April and May are the warmer months. There is not much rainfall, except the odd downpour. Spring is busier as March is a winter sun destination for North Americans.
  • Summer (June to August): Temperatures are getting hotter and with more rain. Low season in Belize. However, many travelers choose this time as it is possible to find lower-priced hotels.
  • Autumn (September to November): Temperatures range from 82,4 F to 89°F (28°C to 32°C), and the breeze makes it feel comfortable. There is the potential of 8 - 11 days of rain. These months continue as low season, with many businesses reducing their prices.
  • Winter (December to February)

A comfortable time with pleasant temperatures from 82,4 F - 86 F (28°C - 30°C). Rainfall of 3 - 8 days a month.

Creeping to high season, expect Belize to be busier and prices higher. However, with only 30 guests at Thatch Caye Resort, this period will go unnoticed but book early as demand increases.
