by Louise Roe

For holidaymakers, it’s best to plan ahead with Belize’s public and bank holidays in mind — mostly because certain services and businesses will be closed completely. Not limited to just Belize, the Caribbean has a slew of public and bank holidays celebrated throughout the year, and it’s welcomed joyously for almost every other month of the year. In Belize, nine of the 12 months of the year celebrate at least one holiday. Besides the universal holidays, like Christmas and New Year’s Day, we celebrate a few more unique to our country and region. Below, find the list of Belize’s public and bank holidays scheduled for 2023.
