Belize Weather for October

Belize Weather for October  Weather in Belize

High on the list of Belize’s many charms is a very comfortable tropical climate with an average yearly temperature of 84° F (29°C). Coastal sea breezes and Belize’s large tracts of jungle and rainforests provide cooling relief even in the hottest summer months while winters can be cool but never very cold. In short, the climate is pretty much near perfect. Even in winter the temperature in Belize rarely falls below 60°F (16°C), while throughout summer the mercury sits at around 86°F (30°C). Humidity is also fairly consistent at around 85 percent. With temperatures so consistent year round,Belizehas two, rather than four seasons– the wet and the dry.
Northerly breezes bring heavier rainfall, and October temperatures in Belize cool down to a monthly average of 79°F (26°C). Daytime highs of around 84°F (29°C) and lows of 75°F (24°C) are common, as are occasional “Northers”, two or three day storms often centred around the Maya Mountains.

Snorkel or dive Mexico Rocks

Mexico Rocks Marine Reserve
Mexico Rocks is a shallow patch reef complex located off the northern tip of Ambergris Caye, on  the Belizean Barrier Reef. The site consists of approximately 100 Holocene patch reefs and is composed predominantly of boulder corals (Montastraea annularis). The reef has accumulated in shallow (about 2.5 to 5 meters) water over the last 420 years. The Montastraea annularis patch corals that dominate here are unique to Ambergris Caye's Northern Lagoon and a rare occurrence in Belize.  It is seen as an important addition to the caye's ecotourism attractions, being a popular snorkeling and shallow dive destination. The area is known for conch, banded shrimp, arrow crab, flounders, stingray, yellow tail snappers, an assortment of butterfly fish, angelfish and friendly turtles. We have daily snorkeling and dive trips to Mexico Rocks for snorkeling 55.usd. SCUBA is 60.usd. Departures at 9:am and 2: pm daily. (Park Fee is 10.usd.) Night Dive 80.usd.

I don't usually share our Trip Advisor Reviews but this one I though you might enjoy since the recent Turtle death at Mexico Rocks upset everyone so.
“Buzz is great guide”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 3 days ago NEW via mobile San Pedro Belize.
Group of seven snorklers went out to Mexico Rock for a two snorkel adventures this morning. White Sands is very professional well organized. Great guide that explained the importance of NOT touching just LOOKING at the marine life.
Buz pointed out eels, green turtles, young nurse shark, spider crabs, lobsters and numerous fish. Perfect pace for our group of snorkelers. Not many other snorkelers around either.
Good to learn Mexico Rock is part of a marine sanctuary so only guided snorkelers are allowed in the water. Also good to learn that NO chumming is allowed now.
The marine life will change their behavior to more normal wild behavior aka not looking for food from humans, now that chumming is not allowed. Good for Belize for making the change and hopef…
