Personally, I think July/August are the worst. Early June should be reasonably ok...

Hey Mr B
I just got back from A.C. everyone said the bugs were awful but I did not use bug spray at all, even on the jungle cruises and the ruin tours where they would be the worst. I didnt have any problems at all.
I dont understand why the time of year would matter when they say the weather is the same throughout the entire year. I know they are worse when it is humid, and believe me it was very humid, and I was fine.
Have you been to Ramons? I personally did not stay there. But I went to dinner there, it is a really great place!! Enjoy!!!

Hope my experience with the weather and skeeters is as good as yours...Jen O and holidaybound. Was just a little more concerned since I'm traveling in June which is the beginning of the rainy season and often coincides with a few more mosquitos... Maybe it won't be too bad since it isn't too far into the summer. Jen O...How was Ramons??? Said you had dinner there. What was your impression??

Hey again Mr B!

We visited Ramons last Tuesday for breakfast and dinner. Both were very good! The service was a perfect 10, they did everything to acommodate us in every way and we were not hotel guests there. For dinner I had the Surf n' Turf, which is steak and lobster. It was only $20 US.
The atmosphere was very tropical with hammocks on the beach, cute little huts, a beautiful swimming pool with very nice landscaping. I went with my cousin and we both agreed we wanted to stay there next time!!
As far as the mosquitos, it pretty much rained every day that we were there. Not longer than a hour a day and that really did not effect the bugs. Monday when it rained I was at the Lamiani Ruins in the jungle...no bugs. Wednesday when it rained I was at the Belize Zoo. Some bugs there, but nothing major. Trust me, if there were I would be bitchn' like crazy.
Any more questions I would be happy to answer! I miss it already....

Mr. B,
We went to Belize (the jungle AND Ambergris) last June. The first week. There were no bugs at all. No skeeters, no no-see-ums, nothing. We came heavily armored with deet etc. but never used it. Not even in the jungle. It was most pleasant. We are arriving June 9th this year and I expect it to be about the same.
Debbie
