Belize is located in Central America, bordered to the north by Mexico, south and west by Guatemala, and to the east by the Caribbean Sea. With 22,960 km2 (8,867 square miles) of land, the country offers lush tropical rainforest, the mystery of the ancient Maya and white sand islands.
Belize´s coastline is 386 km (240 miles) long and holds the longest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere.
The climate is tropical, with two pronounced seasons: wet, between June and November, and dry, from February to May. The weather changes significantly according to the different regions.
The average annual temperature is 26 °C (79 °F), and the humidity rate is of 85%, moderated by the eastern winds from the Caribbean Sea. The mean wind speed is 8 knots.
Long Caye out at Glover’s Reef offers the best choice for those looking for a few waves. The surf spot is quite good, actually.
Also, you may try windsurfing and kitesurfing in Belize. The wind conditions are quite good for sailing in the region.
