November Weather on Ambergris Caye in Belize
San Pedro's high season for tourism is from November to May. This time period runs simultaneously with the dry season, which is the best time for weather in Belize.
The overall climate of Belize can be described as sub-tropical. The humidity while high, is seldom oppressive for long and many days the humidity is masked by the cooling sea breezes. The Belize coastal area is exposed to tradewinds averaging 10-13 knots.
Temperatures in Belize range from 50°F to 95°F with an annual mean of 79°F. November to January are traditionally the coolest months with a 75°F average
