September in Belize


September is one of the best times to visit Belize. Falling during the "low" season, visitors can get a chance to see the top spots in the country and enjoy fabulous festivals without having to deal with large crowds.

Here are 5 great reasons why you should visit Belize in September:

Affordable Flights

All four of America's biggest airlines now offer non-stop flights to Belize, making it easy to get great prices on airfare to Belize.

The Whole Month is One Big Holiday

Belize has several national holidays that all occur in September, making the entire month one non-stop celebration.

The festivities kick off on September 10 when the country celebrates St. George's Caye Day. Named for the 1798 maritime battle offshore of St. George's Caye (an island) where a plucky band of English settlers and African slaves defeated a Spanish fleet, the battle is the reason why Belize became the only British colony in Central America.

Independence Day

The celebrations in Belize continue straight through to September 21. On that day in 1981, Belize gained full independence from Great Britain. The entire month is characterized by street parades, live music, games, contests, recitations of patriotic poetry and songs, and everyone wearing the red, white, and blue (the national colors of Belize).


Many Belizeans who work or study overseas return home in September in order to enjoy family reunions and participate in patriotic celebrations. The great weather is also a major draw as daytime temperatures average 81F/27C, nighttime lows around 77F/25C, and plenty of beautiful sunshine. Some of Belize's most beautiful flowers begin to blossom during this month, filling the air with a medley of delicious scents.

Belizeans are world-renowned for their friendliness and hospitality, and it is not unusual for visitors to be welcomed into homes and invited to family picnics and birthday parties.

Off-Season Prices

September falls during the "low season", allowing savvy travelers to stay at top resorts and hotels at reduced prices. Museums, tours, and other organized activities offer discounts up to 40%, making September an ideal month for budget travelers to enjoy all the best that the country has to offer.

Caves Branch Lodge located in the heart of Belize's Cayo District is one of the best jungle resorts in the country. Guests can stay in luxury tree houses high above the jungle canopy while enjoying all of the exciting celebrations and activities in September.
