Belize Travel Guide 

A trip to Belize, one of Central America’s top tourist destinations, has something for everyone, whether you’re planning a honeymoon or a diving trip. 

If you’re an avid adventurer or looking for a relaxing, beach holiday destination, we highly recommend a trip to Belize. Find out everything you need to know and more here!


Moving around the country is fairly easy. You will be able to find taxis to take you around pretty easily. But we do recommend only making use of licensed taxis, which are recognizable by their green license plates.


Buses are an easy mode of transport to explore Belize. There are express buses to get in and around the main towns. If you’re looking to explore the more rural towns, then you may have to plan ahead, as the local buses in smaller towns run fewer times a day.


If you’re slightly more adventurous then you might consider renting a bicycle to get around Belize. Of course it may not be as comfortable as say a car, or bus, but it sure is an exciting way to sightsee and explore the smaller towns in Belize.

Important Things To Know


The official currency in Belize is the Belize Dollar. However, US Dollars are accepted in Belize. 

So if you’re traveling from the U.S., you won’t have to trade in your US Dollars, making travel just that much easier.

National Languages

Since Belize was a former British colony (formerly British Honduras), English has remained the primary language in the country. 

However, Belize is a melting pot of culture and language, with many locals being multilingual. There are about ten languages spoken in Belize, including Creole, Spanish, as well as Mayan languages such as Q’eqchi’ Maya and Yucatec Mayan. There’s even an African-based language called Garifuna.

Climate And Weather

Belize’s lush rainforests paint the perfect picture of a tropical climate. The rainy season runs from May until October, while the sunny, dry season runs from November to April. 

The warmest month of the year is generally August, with the average temperature reaching around 87°F. The coolest time of the year is usually January, with average temperatures reaching around 75°F. 

May to November is the rainy season, with possible hurricanes.
