What should you pack for a holiday in Ambergris Caye, Belize? If you are planning a trip to this enchanting part of the Caribbean, what you wear is key. Check out our tips on how to dress during your upcoming vacation in Belize.


Throughout the year, Belize is hot, offering both a wet and dry season. According to Lonelyplanet, "Ambergris Caye is consistently hot and pretty humid, day and night, for most of the year. Daytime highs are about 30°C (85°F) and overnight lows lurk around 24°C (75°F). Be aware that hurricane season runs from June to November. This is also the rainy season, but it's not so wet that you can't do anything. The dry season, which falls between December and May, brings relatively rain-free weather for seaside fun."


If you pack resort casual clothing made of lightweight natural fibers, you will be prepared for the weather in Belize. Consider fabrics like linen, cotton and silk as they will not be too heavy in the warm weather.

A woman can plan to bring pants, shorts, tops and assorted sundresses that are appropriate for dining during the evening. If you are concerned about cool nights, pack a pashmina for the shoulders. In terms of ideal apparel for men, pack a variety of shorts, pants and shirts as well for the trip.

Although the majority of destinations in Belize offer relatively relaxed environments, check with your specific hotel or resort to see if they have an established dress code for guests.

Of course, swimwear is a must-have for any trip to Belize. Women should pack a cover-up or two to be worn over a swimsuit when walking around the common areas of the resort. Men can sport their swim shorts and t-shirts.

For a trip to Ambergris Caye, ladies can simply pack a stylish pair of wedges along with comfy flip flops and athletic shoes. Men can bring their casual chic summer footwear, athletic shoes and flip flops as well.

Central America is definitely an ideal place to soak up the sun, but eye and skin protection are essential items for everyone. During the day, sunglasses and a hat can be worn on the beach.
