If you’re feeling a case of the winter blues, Belize can help. Shake off the winter frost and leave snow, ice and cold winds behind.

Did you know that sadness about the changing seasons is real? Mental health experts call it a seasonal affective disorder or SAD. That’s the perfect acronym for the feeling that you can’t cope with cold, damp, gray winter days. Instead of feeling sad, head south to bright, sunny Belize.

Trade Those Boots and Gloves for Shorts and Flip-Flops

Belize gets warm, sunny weather all year. Even the so-called rainy season just means you might experience short bursts of rainfall followed by sunshine.

Winter is the coolest season in Belize, which makes it perfect for all your outdoor explorations. Throughout January and February, Belize enjoys daytime temperatures in the 70s and 80s and nighttime temperatures in the 70s and 60s.

You’ll have sunshine most days, and it’s warm enough to enjoy our beautiful beaches, rivers, and cascading waterfalls. Dipping into the clear blue waters of the Caribbean under a hot sun will chase away all your winter blues.

Enjoy All of Belize

Winter is the high season in Belize, and that means everything is open. Some Belize businesses close during the slow season, but in winter, all the best restaurants, shops, excursions and tours are open. The streets, beaches and beach bars are lively but never overcrowded. Even at its busiest, Belize maintains an easygoing, laid-back pace.

If you want to do something specific in Belize, come during the high season. You’re sure to find all your favorite attractions. If you don’t have anything specific in mind, come on down and explore everything.

Warm Up to Belize

Instead of suffering under gray skies, scraping snow off your car and shivering in your damp clothes, head to warm, beautiful Belize. Spend your days snorkeling, hiking, zip-lining, cruising the river, visiting an exotic spice farm, visiting the Belize Zoo, touring a wildlife sanctuary, learning about the Maya people, birding or relaxing at a spa. Belize truly has something for every traveler.
