July is one of the best times for travelers to enjoy the natural beauty of Belize. Although July falls during the summer for the northern hemisphere, temperatures in Belize are not much hotter than the rest of the year. On average, Belize enjoys daytime highs of around 86F (30C) and nighttime lows of 79F (26C), making it the perfect time to enjoy all of the great outdoor activities and events in the country.
Belize is a country with many celebrations and festivals, including during July. One of the biggest attractions is the local fair in the town of Benque Viejo del Carmen in western Belize on the border with Guatemala. This festival honors the town’s patron saint, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, with lots of live marimba music, amusement park style rides, cultural presentations, dances, and, of course, plenty of great food and drink. The patron saint’s day of honor is July 16 and culminates with a church service and impressive fireworks show.
July falls during the historic “low season” in Belize, which means that budget travelers can take advantage of discounts up to 40% on lodging and excursions to visit top sites like the ancient Maya ruins of Xunantunich and Cahal Pech, boat safaris up the Monkey River, and enjoy world-class scuba diving and snorkeling on the Belize Barrier Reef.
The Belize Barrier Reef is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and part of the second-largest barrier reef in the world after Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Divided into seven different protected marine parks and nature areas, the Belize Barrier Reef is composed of hundreds of islands home to a staggeringly diverse population of sea turtles, fish, birds, dolphins, sharks, and other marine life.
Now that all four of America’s biggest airlines, including Southwest, American, United, and Delta, offer non-stop flights to Belize, increased competition means that airfare is now at a historic low. Travelers wanting to vacation in Belize can choose from flights departing major cities across the United States, including Los Angeles, Miami, Atlanta, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Chicago, and Houston.
