How to Save on Vacations to Belize
Knowing what kind of holiday you want can go a long way in helping you to determine your travel budget. For example, if you're going on vacation young children, the odds are you probably won't be needing an expensive casino hotel on Flamingo Beach. Instead, pick something more family-friendly with a pool or children's play area.
Most tourists avoid the rainy season which extends from June to November. But cheap vacations to Belize are easier to find during this time, with several high-end resorts offering specials and discounts that are unheard of during the peak season. Visit in the shoulder season from May to mid-June before the major downpours begin and you'll be able to save big bucks on your flights, hotels, and just about everything else.
There are two seasons to choose from in Belize — wet and dry. Naturally, most tourists visit in the dry season from mid-November to April, making May to October the off-peak period. Although the rains can be heavy from June onwards, there is still plenty of sunshine for you to enjoy lots of outdoor activities. But remember that the hurricane season extends from end-July to October so unless you're looking for the cheapest deals you can possibly find, avoid travelling to Belize during this time. May to mid-June is a better bet which will get you much cheaper vacation packages, and no hurricane threats.
