plus, how about the weather in general. Is there any site that has forecasts for AC? All I can find is Belize City. I'm assuming it's different on the island. Or is it? We'll be there in 10 days.

If you want direct weather information you can call the Belize Meteorology Department and get a recorded weather forecast every day. It has coastal, mainland and mountain forecasts along with sunrise, sunset, tides, sea conditions, etc. Phone from outside Belize by dialing:
As for water temps - I do not know of any service that tells you this one, nor visibities - perhaps you can contact a dive shop to see if they post such info.

We typically go this time of year (but not this year). Water temps have always been around 82 degrees, viz around a 100 feet.

Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt

Water temp was a pretty consistent 81F for the past 3 weeks. I found viz to be poor this year. However, you can just never tell because it depends on what the weather has done.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

If you're diving, this is a good time of year for wet suits. and for weather; it seems easier to forecast cold fronts dropping from the US down to Belize than predicting summer showers and hurricanes. Take some long clothes for temps possibly in 60's/70's with clouds and wind.
