With many people heading back to school or work, fall is an ideal time to see everything popular that Belize has to offer. Less visitors in the fall means you’ll likely find less crowds at a bar, restaurant, or Belize’s night life. Plus, if you want to explore a jungle waterfall or stroll along the beach, chances are your company will likely only be whoever you bring. 

#3: Seasonal Seafood

Belize’s commercial fisheries directly benefit more than 15,000 Belizean fishermen everyday. For these men and women, fishing is not just a way of life, it’s their lifeblood. And as such, seafood is a diet staple in Belize. Many Belizeans patiently await the seasonal opening of two fisheries: the Queen Conch and Spiny Lobster. Nothing beats that succulent, fresh-out-the-sea taste! Notably, the Queen Conch season reopens annually in October, offering plenty of opportunities to feast on this slightly-sweet Caribbean delicacy. Additionally, Spiny Lobster is also available during early fall.
