Plan Ahead for Paradise - 2024


Visiting Belize during late summer through the fall into December can be a delightful experience. In September, the country comes alive with colorful celebrations that captivate locals and visitors alike. The month boasts the presence of electrifying carnivals that create a festive vibe throughout the streets. Furthermore, September 10th holds special significance in Belizean history, St. George's Caye Day fostering a sense of pride and unity among the people. St. George's Caye Day is a day of remembrance for the Battle of St. George's Caye that took place (at you guessed it) St. George's Caye. This Battle celebrates the victory of the British Baymen, Settlers and slaves defeating the Spaniards.

During the 16th century, the Spanish tried to control the region of the Yucatan coast, which includes modern-day Belize. During the battle, the Baymen defeated the Spanish Navy. They couldn't settle due to a lack of natural resources and hostile Indian tribes. The first Europeans to settle were British sailors, who were either shipwrecked or with the title 'Pirate' on their resume. These Europeans, known as Baymen at the time, began to colonize Belize in the middle of the 17th century.

On September 21, Belize will celebrate 43 years of independence. After centuries as a British colony, Belize became a fully sovereign nation on September 21, 1981, and is today a proud member of the British Commonwealth.

There are questions about the weather in late summer through the end of the year. This time of year, typically "cools down" where temps hover more around 80°F. There are also periodic showers, but usually Belize is not host to long days of consecutive rain. This is a time of year with less crowds at excursion sites, and typically lower fares for flights.  Paradise awaits your arrival in 2024. 

We hope you can come away for pampering in paradise and a perspective that is as refreshing as our clear blue waters!
