Placencia Vacations & Travel Tips

When to Go

Those looking for a sizzling good time will find it in Placencia during the warmer months of May through September, when temperatures run from 72 F to 88 F. Rainfall is highest between June and November. The cooler months from December through March range from 64 F to 84 F.

Although January through April is considered the dry season, southern Belize is known for both humidity and sun, so rain may fall all year round. Once you’re in the water, it won’t matter a bit. If you happen to visit during June, check out their fun-filled Placencia Lobsterfest.
