Recent Belize floods

In an earlier blog we talked about the devastating drought that has affected all of Central America, including Belize. Well, the peak of the rainy season, Sept/Oct, has changed everything. This last week a slow moving tropical storm swept across Belize, creating torrential rains in the northern part of the country. It rained between 10″ and 23″ in various parts of the country, a huge t

What do Belize and California have in common?

We have already commented in a previous blog post about the developing El Nino weather pattern that is affecting the climate patterns across the Caribbean. The primary effect El Nino is having is to alter the upper level wind strength and that has been suppressing hurricane development in the Caribbean. So far there has not been a single hurricane in the entire Caribbean, which is very unusual sin

Belize’s windy early season

Out on our Belize island we offer two wind sports: windsurfing and kiteboarding. We are open during the “dry” season, which is late November through May. The rest of the year it is too rainy to be able to offer adventure sport packages with reliably good weather. We can windsurf and kitesurf through our season, but it’s the windiest at the beginning of the season, late November &

Best time to visit Belize

The best time to visit Belize is the period of time known as the “dry season”. Speaking of summer, fall, winter, or spring is not that useful for Belize. Although there is little difference in temperatures between seasons in Belize, like all tropical regions Belize experiences extremes in precipitation amounts depending on the time of year. In the northern reaches of the tropics the cl

Amazing Earth wind map

My partner Cully is a weather freak. If I need to know what the weather is going to do, I ask him. He was working on our Belize weather web page and recently found this fabulous map of our planet’s wind. This amazing Earth wind map gives you a visual picture of the wind all over the Earth. The brighter the color, the higher the wind speed. Belize is located at the very bottom of the Mexican

No matter the weather, Multi-sport Adventure Island always has something to offer

The fact that we have so many different water sports out on Adventure Island means that no matter what the weather in Belize is like on a given day, there are always some of the sports that are perfectly suited for those conditions.  If the winds are blowing but the surf isn’t up, the conditions are ideal for windsurfing and kiteboarding. If the surf is up but the wind is calm, it’s i

What is the weather like in Belize right this second?

Planning a trip to Belize in the near future? Not only do we have some of the most extensive historical weather info on Belize and specifically out at Glover’s Reef, but if you’re like me, sometimes you just want to know what it’s like right now. I just stumbled across this cool site that has instant weather info and an awesome, live webcam. Granted they’re both based out o

Belize weather

We just created a new webpage with a month-by-month description of the weather conditions in Belize. Storms, wind, dry and rainy season, and hurricane season are all discussed. It’s good to know the weather as the season progresses, because it helps to choose your vacation date based on which sports you are interested in. Windsurfers and kitesurfers should look at January-February, snorkeler

The rainy season

Every year we are asked about whether traveling to Belize or the tropics is a good idea during ‘the rainy season’. Slickrock is not open during this time (summer and fall) and it is partly due to bad weather in Belize, although the weather in the summer (June – August) is often not too severe until hurricane season arrives in September (although it can, of course, begin earlier). The oth
