Belize weather in November often has heavy downpours of rain in this Central American country.

Belize City is a popular cruise port on the Caribbean coast of the country, mostly for “exotic” western Caribbean cruises.

Cruise visitors go on many shore excursions to the surrounding countryside to visit Mayan ruins and ecotourism attractions.

The ecotourism attractions are common because the country has quite a bit of rainfall during the year, especially in the fall months such as November.

Average Rainfall

Belize City averages more than seven inches of rain in November, the National Meteorological Service of Belize reports. It’s one of the highest levels of the year, although not as high as September and October.

Rain is especially heavy in November because it is the final month of the Caribbean hurricane season. Historically, the Caribbean averages only a few tropical storms during the month, but rainfall in general is more common.

Hurricanes and tropical storms usually don’t hit Belize directly. Instead, some of them pass near the country and bring more rain.

November’s high rainfall compares to a low point of two inches in February and March during the country’s brief dry season. It goes from February through April. The long rainy season goes from May through January.

November is one of the rainiest times of the year to visit Belize. Travelers will find that the best times to visit Belize are February and March because they are part of the dry season.
