Rainy Season In Belize

Image
In Belize, a small country in Central America which occupies the south-east of the Yucatan Peninsula, the climate is tropical, hot all year round, with a rainy and muggy season from June to October, and a less hot season from November to February, when the northeast trade winds prevail, but they still unload rainfall, which gradually decreases, so that from February to April it's the driest period. From March to May, before the rainy season, the heat gradually increases, so that in April and May the hottest days of the year occur, and there may be torrid days, especially in inland areas; in May, even thunderstorms become a bit more frequent. 
The rainy season runs from June to November when annual Belize rainfall is highest. The early months of May and June when rainfall is just getting underway, are a good time to travel to Belize as you can you can escape the tourist rush and hotel rates tend to be lower.  Low Season (Jun–Oct)
Heavy rainfall from June to mid-November, especially …

Amigos del Mar Dive Shop (San Pedrano owner) OVER 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE

Image
Amigos Del Mar Dive Shop started off as a thatched roof structure in 1987 that offered snorkeling trips to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley reserves as well as a rental for scuba and snorkeling gear. The vision of providing a resourceful and fun-filled expedition to Barrier Reef and other National Reserves was something that owner, Changa, has always wanted for his community. It started as a small family venture with the renting of the scuba equipment and booking small local dive tours, then slowly went venturing off to other natural and National Reserves of our country which included the Turneffe Islands and Light House Reef and not to mention Belize’s famous Blue Hole. Now the diving center is the largest dive center on the island.

Hanal Pixan (food for the souls)

Food for the Souls: the Celebration of Hanal Pixan
A Mayan celebration of the famous Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), Hanal Pixan is a time for family and friends to honor the memories of their deceased ancestors. Over the first two days of November, spirits are believed to return to the earth for a celebration of food, drink, and prayer. Their graves are decorated with gifts and fruit and altars are prepared with photographs, the iconic Mexican sugar skulls, and colorful flowers.In Mayan tradition, death comes in waves. The first death is, of course, a literal one and comes the moment that the human body ceases to function. A second death occurs with burial as the body is returned to the earth. Hanal Pixan is considered so important, though, because of the third kind of death: the end that comes when a person is no longer remembered or thought of by those still living. The stories and dances, poems and prayers that are characteristic of these days are meant to pr…
