The Best Things To Do in May in Belize 

Belize has two main seasons: the wet/rainy season and dry season. It might be on the tail end, but May is considered to be part of the wet season in Belize. This month is also the beginning of the low season of tourism. These elements, combined with the abundance of things to do, make Belize in May one of the best times to visit! 

Thrilling Water Sports


During May, the average ocean temperature is 83 degrees. That means you can comfortably get in the water and enjoy all the activities we offer. You can go snorkeling in Hol Chan Marine Reserve, swim with nurse sharks at Shark Ray Alley, go parasailing over the Belize Barrier Reef, catch wild Lionfish, and more! It doesn’t get more exciting than that! 

Enjoy a Long Weekend 

If you’re an American, you know that Memorial Day is celebrated every year on the last Monday in May. Take advantage of this long weekend, save some PTO, and book your getaway to Belize. Their country doesn’t celebrate our holiday (obviously!), so you don’t have to worry about businesses being closed on this day.  

Celebrate Mother’s Day

If we’re discussing the month of May, we can’t forget to mention Mother’s Day! Mahogany Bay Resort is one of the best places to celebrate the special moms in our lives. Book a Mother’s Day getaway and plan an itinerary of pampering and exciting activities. We recommend booking a massage at our onsite spa, relaxing on the beach at our private Beach Club, enjoying tea in the JYOTO tea lounge, and embarking on a sunset cruise.  

Bask in the Belizean Sunshine 

When you visit Belize, you’ll want to spend as much time as possible soaking in vitamin D. When you stay with us at Mahogany Bay Resort, you’ll have so many opportunities to spend time outside and breathe in the fresh air. You can work on your tan as you relax by our resort pool with a cocktail in hand, enjoy outdoor dining on the porch at The Verandah, go fly fishing on the flats, explore the Belize jungle on horseback, and more.
