May is the last month of Belize’s dry season, which means you’ll be aptly reminded you’re in the tropics with humidity levels. Temperatures average between a high of 89° Fahrenheit and a low of 77° Fahrenheit, but it can get balmy as the weather shifts to prepare for the rain season.

Why wait until summer for a getaway? Instead, May’s weather offers up all of the best adventures, with about half of the rainfall of July and August. And because May is the beginning of the low season in Belize’s tourism industry, you can take advantage of huge discounts on accommodations, tours, and all-inclusive vacation packages.

You’ll find that particularly useful in places that get popular quickly, like Ambergris Caye—ranked as the 4th best island in Central America by Conde Nast Traveler. During your stay, dive into Caye Caulker Marine Reserve or go swimming with sharks at the Hol Chan Cut. Onshore, Elvi’s Kitchen should top your foodie list, known for its Mayan-Caribbean fusion cuisine that locals say is one of the best in town. And to cool off, kick back in the water at Palapa Bar & Grill with an ice-cold Belikin by the bucket.
