Belize weather in April historically has the lowest risk of rain for the entire year. It’s a good time to visit.

Belize City is a popular port to visit on “exotic” western Caribbean cruises. They go to places such as nearby Roatan in addition to Belize.

Belize City doesn’t have many interesting things to do, but the countryside does.

Heavy rains during much of the year create ecotourism attractions such as rainforest hikes. The countryside also is known for its massive Mayan ruins.

Belize usually has heavy rains each month from June through December during the rainy season. But not April.

Belize Temperatures in April

Belize temperatures in April have an average high of 87 degrees Fahrenheit or 31 Celsius, according to the National Meteorological Service of Belize. These highs normally occur during the day.

The average low is 74 degrees Fahrenheit or 23 Celsius. Lows usually take place at night.

April temperatures are just about average for the year.

By comparison, temperatures climb only a few degrees higher during the hottest months of the year from June through September. But they aren’t good months to visit because they have a much higher risk of rain.

Average Rainfall

Belize City averages two inches of rain in April, according to the National Meteorological Service of Belize. Although a low level for Belize, it is similar to other Caribbean destinations during the month.

Even better, it rains on average only four days during April.

April is the third month of a brief dry season that goes from February through May.

By comparison, September and October average more than 10 inches a month. That total is higher than most Caribbean destinations.

The Belize rainy season is longer than most because it goes from June through December and somewhat into January. The rainy season for much of the Caribbean is June through November.

Belize weather in April offers one of the best months of the year to visit Belize.
