April and May – Two Perfect Months to Visit Belize



In a recent article published by the San Pedro Sun, the spring months of April and May were touted as two of the best months to visit Belize. Falling just after the huge rise in tourist numbers around the Easter and Spring Break periods, April and May offer visitors a chance to explore the country without having to battle crowds.

The months of April and May fall at the end of the "dry season," so called because it is when the weather in Belize is warm with abundant sunshine. April and May are also when airlines begin reducing prices as the peak tourism season winds down, opening the door for budget travelers visit Belize.

The months of April and May are also special because they fall during the period when vast schools of whale sharks visit the waters of Belize. After traveling around the globe, whale sharks arrive in the Belize Barrier Reef to feed on the vast quantities of plankton and fish spawn that are produced during the springtime. Despite weighing up to 20 tons, whale sharks have no teeth, instead relying on a complex system of filters to strain their microscopic prey from the water.

"Late spring is truly a glorious time to visit Belize," said Rhoda Gill, Marketing Manager of Caves Branch Jungle Lodge. "Between the arrival of the whale sharks and the lack of crowding, visitors to Belize during April and May can enjoy a lot of great activities."

Popular events include the yearly Agriculture and Trade Show in Belmopan. Similar to a state fair in the United States, the Agriculture and Trade Show sees nearly 20,000 people attend to partake in games, enjoy carnival rides, watch rodeos, listen to live music, and enjoy lots of delicious food and drinks. In 2018, the Agriculture and Trade Show will take place between May 3-5.

Every year, the village of Crooked Tree holds a cashew festival where the famously butter-tasting nut is celebrated in all of its varieties, including being used to make jellies and wine. And, in Punta Gorda in southern Belize, May is when the world-famous chocolate festival is held. Timed to coincide with Commonwealth Day, the chocolate festival gives attendees a chance to see how cacao is converted from a bitter seed into the world's most popular sweet treat.
