Belize rainy season is June to November. It’s the time period when the annual Belize rainfall is highest. The rains can begin in May but both then and June are typically not as heavy. Both are great times to travel here as you can you can bypass the tourist rush and enjoy low season hotel rates.
Belize Weather in June
Typically June is a warm month with temperatures averaging from 29°C or 83°F to 30°C or 86°F. If we are lucky enough to catch an eastern breeze off the Caribbean sea it helps cool things down a bit. June is also characterized by frequent short showers .Aside from rain, June rains bring on the pesky mosquitoes – when they often overtake the island. On those days you are not really safe to leave your house without spraying a good dose of bug spray first. I keep hoping to find a natural mosquito repellent that works but does not feel so icky on the skin. For sand fleas I use Glorious Belize cold pressed coconut oil.
Then we Got Burgers
After going to see our friends play some great live music at Roadkill bar on Wednesday night, a few of us went on to get a bite to eat. Throughout the night it had been spitting a bit and from the lighting in the sky we all knew it was only a matter of time before it started pouring. We rode our bikes to the local hamburger & hot dog stand near Tropic Air Cargo.
Not long after placing our order, it started to come down pretty hard. So we went under the tarp they had set up and decided to eat there. The people who run the stand were set up for rainy season. They built a raised floor on the ground and placed a couple of long tables and plastic stools for people to eat. The funny part is, if you stand at the back of the structure and drop a marble it would role straight out to the road. The sound of the rain hitting the tarp reminded us of camping. While sitting there with Paul, Carole and Dick, I mentioned that I thought this was the best burger I had there yet. I think it was the combination of the rain, slanted floors and friends that made it taste so good.
