March in Belize: Weather, What to Pack, and What to See

March is one of the best times to visit Belize, boasting hot temperatures and a cool breeze.

Weather in March

March falls under dry season in Belize, where there is only a small chance of the occasional rain shower. Rainstorms tend to be few and far between and the hurricane season is still a way off so there are no worries in that regards. If you want good weather, you’ll adore the warm tropical climate on Ambergris Caye where temperatures average 70-85 degrees . It is one of the best times to visit Ambergris Caye whereby you can relax in the tropical sun and enjoy a well-deserved winter escape.

Stay Cool in the March Heat

Belize is full of adventurous outings that will have you feeling warm all over.  To cool you down while on the island plan for a day out at sea. The Belize Barrier Reef if less than a mile from shore. Enjoy a full day catamaran sail of the Belize Barrier Reef. With a cool breeze your day begins as you gently sail to Hol Chan Marine Reserve. Grab a mask, some flippers and drive right in. Snorkel Hol Chan Marine Reserve and set your sights on vibrant marine life. After that spectacular snorkel, jump on back board and cool down with a refreshing rum punch as you  head on to Shark Ray Alley where you will encounter sharks and rays in their natural habitat for another great snorkel stop. Once back on board, settle in for the sail to Caye Caulker,  San Pedro’s neighbouring island –  Having spent a couple hours having lunch, soaking in the sea at the Split and ‘going slow’ as the island motto suggest, your day will end with a smooth sail back to Ambergris Caye.

What to Expect

March is the height of the high season in Belize. This is prime time for Spring Breakers and snowbirds to escape the cold and head to the islands, so expect more crowds around town. As a small beachfront resort with only 21 spacious suites ,  you can avoid the crowd quite easily on property.  Private balcony,  beach loungers around our pool and on our seafront deck allow for peaceful areas of relaxation.
